Is there an estimate of the weight of heavy metals accumulate in our bodies over a lifetime?

Dr. Nikolas, we've got one more question. And this comes from our audience. It was just submitted to us by one of our guests, Malcolm. He said, we hear of accumulation of things like cosmetics over a lifetime being measured in several pounds. Is there any similar estimate of the weight of heavy metals accumulating in our bodies over a lifetime? And he adds, in course, this is our friend Malcolm, after all, they are heavy.

Dr. Nikolaos Tsirikos-Karapanos, PharmD, MD, Cardiothoracic Surgeon (00:32):

Well excellent question. Of course, as expected coming from Malcolm the answer is yes. Here's the problem. In general, when a problem at whatever problem is visible, that's good because this is the first step towards solving this problem. When the problem is not visible, that's bad because you don't know what's going on. Here's the problem with heavy metals and many other toxins like herbicides and pesticides, they are causing problems on several biochemical mechanisms, very slowly and very progressively. It's not that today you are okay. And tomorrow morning you have a big time problem. Like, oops, what happened? Like a food poisoning you eat the food where a fly was sitting for half an hour. Well, next morning you have a diaria or the same night, okay. Something happened acutely. It is very visible, very loud. All right, heavy metals and herbicides and pesticides and other toxins don't blow.

Dr. Nikolaos Tsirikos-Karapanos, PharmD, MD, Cardiothoracic Surgeon (02:01):

The problem is that if these subclinical toxicity, as we call it the clinical toxicity that has not given yet loud clinical manifestations, right? It is a sub clinical toxicity. The problem is that if the heavy metals related the pesticides related, the herbicides related toxicity becomes clinical toxicity, then maybe these late to diversity, certainly it will be far more difficult to reverse it. And that's a great value. That's a great value of ZOI ClearDrops slowly improve aggressively. You fight with the enemy without huge explosions in your body without the need of an intravenous cancellation within DTA. You take care yourself. So to avoid this kind of big time loud, big, nasty clinical manifestations.

Denise Stephens, ZOI CEO (03:20):

Excellent. Wow. What a, what a great, what a great answer. What a great answer. So there's even a way to quantify the weight of the accumulation of these heavy metals because they're not really understood. Am I right? Dr. Nicholas did not really understood. 

Dr. Nikolaos Tsirikos-Karapanos, PharmD, MD, Cardiothoracic Surgeon (03:40):

When, when this accumulation becomes, becomes clinical toxicity, when you have a big time problem, then, then you need to do what Lori mentioned before. Then you may need to start intravenous EDTA, Chelation, and other medical treatments that have certain possible side effects are not pleasant. And if we can avoid this, that would be great.

Denise Stephens, ZOI CEO (04:16):

Yes. Excellent. Excellent.
