Metal Toxicology

Track 7: Metal toxicity

Metal toxicity or metal poisoning is that the toxic results of definite metals in definite forms and doses on life. Some metals are toxic once they form poisonous soluble compounds. Certain metals haven't any biological role, i.e. aren't essential minerals, or are toxic when during a certain form. Within the case of lead, any measurable amount may have negative health effects. Often heavy metals are thought as synonymous, but lighter metals can also be toxic in certain circumstances, like beryllium and lithium. Not all heavy metals are particularly toxic, and a few are essential, like iron. The definition can also include trace elements when in abnormally high doses could also be toxic. An option for treatment of metal poisoning could also be chelation therapy, which may be a technique which involves the administration of chelation agents to get rid of metals from the body.
