Heavy Metals

Heavy Metals.mp3

What do you think?
Some molybdenum and zinc
Sorry, I'm a bit dumb
About molybdenum
A little mental
About heavy metal

What about
Iron and cobalt?
Jeeze... not to mention
Copper and manganese
Trying to figure out
Heavy metal's participation
(Clap your hands and stomp your feet
Nibble on a heavy metal treat)

Trying to figure out
What's heavy metal's fault
Let's see...
Lead and mercury
Got a tune the tuna
Or, it can kill ya
Hard to tell
When heavy turns to death metal hell
And, it will kill, kill, kill

Living organisms require varying amounts of "heavy metals". Iron, cobalt, copper, manganese, molybdenum, and zinc are required by humans. Excessive levels can be damaging to the organism. Other heavy metals such as mercury, plutonium, and lead are toxic metals and their accumulation over time in the bodies of animals can cause serious illness. Certain elements that are normally toxic are, for certain organisms or under certain conditions, beneficial. Examples include vanadium, tungsten, and even cadmium.

Heavy metal toxicity can result in damaged or reduced mental and central nervous function, lower energy levels, and damage to blood composition, lungs, kidneys, liver, and other vital organs. Long-term exposure may result in slowly progressing physical, muscular, and neurological degenerative processes that mimic Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, muscular dystrophy, and multiple sclerosis. Allergies are not uncommon, and repeated long-term contact with some metals (or their compounds) may cause cancer.

Do not eat:

Nearly all fish and shellfish contain traces of mercury... some fish and shellfish contain higher levels of mercury that may harm an unborn baby or young child's developing nervous system. The risks from mercury in fish and shellfish depend on the amount of fish and shellfish eaten and the levels of mercury in the fish and shellfish.
-- The FDA of the United States of America

Iron is needed for blood; however, men can build up toxic levels of iron as they grow older.
