The Big 4 Toxic Metals & Their Impact on Patient Health
Presenters: Theodore Zava, Elements Supervisor at ZRT
Heavy metal pollutants are all around us - in the air we breathe, in the water we drink, in the food we eat and in materials we touch. When patients come to you worried about possible exposure, do you know what to tell them?
This webinar provides health care practitioners with an overview of the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry's (ATSDR) top four toxic metals: Arsenic, Cadmium, Lead, and Mercury. It will also give practical tips you can share with patients to help them stay safe.
Topics addressed during this educational webinar include:
- What can be done to protect against heavy metal exposure
- Types of testing, and what each test means
- New advancements in testing
- Discussion about reference ranges and why they matter
