Heavy metal poisoning can affect anyone. This can have devastating effects, which range from reduced IQ, development and behavior problems to severe kidney and brain damage. Of course, most people know you shouldn't ingest heavy metals directly. However, it is the slow chronic exposure through for example contaminated water or food as sushi, which can affect even you and me. It's the build-up of metal in organs that can have long lasting health effects and where many people are not aware of.
