Heavy Metal Toxicity Chart with symptoms and cause.

Heavy metal toxicity can affect many body systems, and manifest a variety of symptoms. This toxic metal chart lays out the symptoms of heavy metal toxicity, and the heavy metals that cause them. System symptoms include Psychiatric Disturbances, Speech and Language Deficits, Cognitive Impairments, Sensory Abnormalities, Motor Disorders,Physiological Impairment, Brain and Central Nervous System, Peripheral Nervous System, Gastrointestinal Tract, Renal and Hepatic Impairment, Cardiovascular System, Respiratory System, Immune System, Reproductive System and Other Physical Disturbances.

The presence in the environment of large quantities of toxic metals such as mercury , lead, cadmium, zinc or others, poses serious health risks to humans, and this threat puts the scientific community under pressure to develop new methods to detect and eliminate toxic contaminants .
