Here is a report from Reuters new service about the cancellation of the proposed study of chelation therapy.

I think it’s probably a good idea to cancel the study because children have been harmed by the procedure.


Heavy metal toxicity is a controversial theory about the cause of autism.  I have never had Rob tested for metal exposure – except for lead. His blood tests came back well below the government threshold at the time – although since then the government has lowered the acceptable level significantly. I did not have his hair and nails tested. That was long ago, when he was little; and now there are more sophisticated tests for toxic metals….maybe I need to look into it more.
