Dangerous Poisons Released Into PA Streams

If you live near or around the Monongahela River and South Fork Tenmile Creek, it would be best to wait to go fishing and swimming. According to a report by the Courthouse News Service, a coal mine south of Pittsburgh has released too much iron, manganese, aluminum and other mining waste into local creeks and waterways connected to the Monongahela River.

According to the lawsuit, which was brought on by a local nonprofit organization, some of the pollutants caused by coal processing include iron, manganese, aluminum, osmotic pressure and total suspended solids. Small amounts of these elements are common in our environment and diet, and are necessary for good health. However, large amounts of any of them may cause acute or chronic toxicity. For some heavy metals, toxic levels can be just above the background concentrations naturally found in nature. Therefore, it is important to learn about heavy metals and take protective measures against excessive exposure.

What can you do if you are exposed to heavy metals and they build up in your system? According to Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, the first step is to get tested using your blood, hair, or urine. Once you find the problem, you should consider treatment. This could be done through chelation treatment. It is also important to replenish the good minerals in your body through healthy eating and/or supplementation.
