Find out with ANY LAB TEST NOW®
We are exposed to natural elements every day, including metals. Our bodies need a certain amount of these substances to survive and regulate bodily functions, including chromium, iron and zinc. However, too much of a good thing can lead to toxicity.
Heavy Metals Testing is an option at ANY LAB TEST NOW® if you are concerned with toxic exposure, or need to monitor your employees in line with OSHA regulations. The most common metals tested for include:
- Heavy Metals Panel
- Arsenic Exposure Test
- Lead Exposure Test
- Mercury Exposure Test
- Cadmium Exposure Test
- Chromium (Hexavalent Chromium, Chromium 6) Exposure Test
- Copper Exposure Test
- Zinc Exposure Test
Heavy metal toxicity can result in damage to the vital organs, neurological and muscular degeneration, cancer, allergies and even death. Toxicity occurs when the body cannot metabolize the amount of metal substances ingested or absorbed. The metals then accumulate in the soft tissues.
Occupational exposure is the most common way people are exposed to heavy metals, and employers take precautionary steps to test and monitor employees that may be exposed to protect their health and safety. There are a number of other ways people are exposed to heavy metals, including but not limited to:
- Occupational exposure
- Environmental releases in the air, water and soil
- Intentional poisoning
- Living in or remodeling old homes
- Cigarette smoke
- Contaminated soil
- Taking metal-based supplements at unnecessary levels
If you are concerned and are interested in heavy metals testing or are an employer that needs a solution for testing employees, call our store in for assistance.
