Many health conditions are mitigated by the nutrient density of ancestral diets. Routine mercury exposures — via dental amalgams, dietary fish, and certain vaccines, as well as in utero exposures to such sources — yield toxic effects for susceptible persons. Mercury blocks metabolic enzymes and promotes oxidative stress. At the molecular level, mercury binds the key functional group, thiol (sulfur; cysteine), as well as selenium, thereby creating a biochemical train wreck. Mercury can cause or contribute to most chronic illnesses including premature aging. A stored mercury burden is difficult to detect with standard laboratory methods. Mercury toxicity can be addressed with extra nutrition and a low-carb, high-fat, high-fiber diet, which can alleviate oxidative stress, repair cellular damage, push blocked enzymes, control high cortisol, improve insulin sensitivity, and maintain gut function during toxicant elimination.

Kris Homme is a retired engineer turned science writer who covers environmental toxicants. Her early-onset macular degeneration (which she attributes to her twelve mercury dental amalgams) has not precluded her from reading the scientific literature; her work is available on PubMed... Read More →
