Screening For Toxic Metals:

In minds crammed with thoughts, organs clogged with toxins, and bodies stiffened with neglect, there is just no space for anything else.
- Alison Rose Levy, in "An Ancient Cure for Modern Life"

Toxic metal screening includes lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, nickel, and aluminum. A very high reading may represent a toxic amount of the mineral in the hair, and/or in the body tissues in general. In the case of a toxic metal, any deposition or accumulation in the hair indicates some degree of toxicity.
