metal toxicity in human body

New Delhi, Nov 4 : If you live in Delhi-NCR, there’s more bad news in store for you. A whopping 41 per cent of the Delhi and NCR population are found to be suffering from severe heavy metal toxicity, according to a survey conducted by Daivam Wellness.

The shocking findings suggest extremely high levels of air and soil pollution, food contamination, plastic usage etc in the region.

Out of 165 patients, 68 patients were found positive for some kind of severe metal toxicity. Metals like aluminium, mercury, lead, arsenic, and cadmium were the most commonly found metals in these patients.

Before you wonder, apocalyptic pollution is seen as the major reason for increasing metal toxicity in human body. The reason these findings are more than a cause for worry is because they can easily stimulate multiple organ damage and lead to serious health issues.

The survey that was done over a period of 6 months, from May 2019 to October 2019 covering people from age group of 20 to 65 years, has now sparked off a scare.

Health horrors like cancer too can result from this. It may even result in congenital defects and adverse pregnancies. Such high levels of metals in the human body can also lead to chronic kidney diseases, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, cardiac diseases, infertility and epilepsy.

Dr Alok Chopra, Medical Director, Daivam Wellness said, “Along with contaminated food, medicines, plastic ware, high level of environmental pollution – especially air, soil and water, has increased the exposure of heavy metals. While even before running the tests, we knew that people living in Delhi-NCR, one of the most polluted areas of the world, will have some metal toxicity, but the final result surprised us. 41 per cent is a way too high figure and certainly calls for emergency measures.”

Amid this toxic health hazard, children are the most vulnerable lot. Experts say, their exposure to even low concentrations during intrauterine and early childhood can result in lifelong physical disabilities.

According to the Lancet Commission on Pollution and Health, contaminated water, air and soil are responsible for about nine million early deaths, which is about 16 per cent of global deaths. What’s more? About 92 per cent of these early deaths due to environmental toxicity occur in low and middle-income countries which includes India.

Dr Chopra urged that if someone is having symptoms like muscle or joint pain, headache, mood swings, persistent tiredness, constipation, diarrhoea, abdominal pain, poor immunity, unexplained hair loss and skin problems, frequent deep seated allergies or illness is worsening without any reason then he or she should consider a metal toxicity scan.

“To detect metal toxicity, we use OLIGOSCAN, a device that gives the real-time percentage of metals like Mercury, Magnesium, Iron, Aluminium, Lead and other minerals that are present in the body such as Calcium, Magnesium and Zinc,” he said.

Once it’s established you are toxic infested, ultra modern technologies like hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) can be used to treat the patient.

The group warned the toxic exposure is only set to rise in Delhi-NCR in the coming days. Brace up, you are living in an apocalyptic world.

Won’t allow NRC in Bengal: Mamata Banerjee

Mamata Banerjee

Kolkata, Nov 20 : On a day when union home minister Amit Shah asserted that the National Register of Citizens (NRC) exercise would be undertaken across India, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee assured people on Wednesday that her government will never allow preparation of any such list.

Addressing a public meeting at Sagardighi of Murshidabad district, Banerjee said nobody can take away the citizenship of any person and make him/her a refugee.

She also challenged the Bharatiya Janata Party to clarify why the names of 14 lakh Hindus and Bengalis were left out of the final NRC brought out in Assam.

Obviously targeting the BJP without naming it, Banerjee said “a few people” were trying to foment trouble in the state in the name of NRC.

“A few people are trying to foment trouble in the state by saying that NRC exercise will be carried out in Bengal. I would like to make it very clear, that we will never allow the NRC exercise in Bengal,” she said.

“We won’t allow anybody to divide people on the basis of religion,” she added.

Shah told Rajya Sabha during the day that NRC will be implemented nationwide, and asserted that no person from any religion need to be afraid of it.

“The NRC exercise is monitored by the Supreme Court. No religion has been targeted or isolated during the NRC exercise,” said Shah responding to a query of Congress leader Syed Nasir Hussain.

BHU students continue protest, Muslim prof feels ‘insulted’

Sanskrit Scholar Firoze Khan

Varanasi, Nov 20 : The students’ protest against the appointment of a Muslim professor in the Sanskrit Vidya Dharma Vigyan in the Banaras Hindu University (BHU) entered its 14th day on Wednesday with the students refusing to give up on their demand.

The BHU administration continues to maintain that the appointment of professor Feroz Khan is in accordance with the prescribed norms and there is no question of his removal.

The BHU administration has issued a statement, saying, “The idea behind the establishment of the university was to contribute in nation-building by providing equal opportunity of study and teaching to all deserving people without any discrimination on the basis of caste, religion, gender and sect.”

The statement also said that Khan’s appointment was a unanimous decision made by a selection committee under a transparent process.

The Muslim professor Feroz Kahn, meanwhile, said that he felt ‘insulted’ by the incident and added that he would have never applied for the job if the university had mentioned in the advertisement that they did not want a Muslim.

Students sitting on dharna, on the other hand, have started reciting Hanuman Chalisa to underline their opposition to a Muslim faculty member.

Chakrapani Ojha, a student leader leading the protest since November 7, said: “The appointment of a Muslim faculty member has hurt the sentiments of Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya who established the BHU. This appointment has been made as part of a conspiracy. The entire process, including the interview, was rigged in favour of Feroz Khan. The stone inscription installed in BHU clearly states that no non-Hindu can either study or teach in our department. Then why was a Muslim professor appointed in the faculty?”

The university spokesman Rajesh Singh said that there is no stone inscription on the premises that says non-Hindus cannot study or teach in BHU.

Shubham Tiwari, another student leader, said, “In this department, there are no teachers, all are our gurus. Everyone keeps a ‘choti’ on their head, we touch their feet and participate in ‘havan’ which is a regular ritual. If a Muslim professor is accorded a place in the department, then he will not be able to perform rituals and teach us our dharma.”

Umakant Chaturvedi, the head of the department, said that the deadlock continued and no classes were being held in the Sanskrit department.

Sources said that some faculty members in the department were instigating protest and provoking students.
