Did you know that cilantro (aka. coriander, Coriandrum sativum) has been found by scientific research to eliminate highly toxic mercury from the body? A groundbreaking research project conducted at the Heart Disease Research Foundation, New York, USA in the mid to late 1990s discovered this remarkable effect of cilantro. 
Since then, several fascinating follow-up studies have appeared. A 2001 study found that coriander had a preventative effect on lead poisoning in mice. 
Here is another study of interest, as a completely different industry corroborates the findings: A study by the Department of Atomic Energy in India found cilantro able to remove mercury ions from aqueous solution “with good efficiency”. 
Also, more recent studies have found that the detox effect was amplified by the inclusion of chlorella  – which, interestingly, has also been found able to bind to cadmium – another toxic metal. 
There is far too much here to ignore: This subject is worthy of more studies, please!
In the recent decades, there has an increasing awareness about the serious negative impacts of heavy metals to human body. Extensive scientific studies have been conducted to determine the extent of these damages and how to minimize their undesirable and damaging effects.
These heavy / toxic metals include arsenic, beryllium, lead, cadmium, barium, chromium, mercury and selenium.  These metals are normally present in the natural environment at low levels. However when they are found in larger amounts they may impose additional risks to the body.
Humans normally acquire these metals through ingestion, drinking, eating, and breathing or inhalation. Of course, many people have acquired mercury through mercury amalgam dental fillings. Sufficient mercury is picked up through fish consumption for there to have been warnings about over-consumption of certain types of fish. People living / working in industrial areas where these metals are utilized, or those who reside in areas where these metals are disposed improperly, also have a risk for exposure.
When exposed to larger quantities of these metals, humans tend to experience various symptoms which include vomiting, nausea, increase in blood pressure, breathing difficulties, muscle weakness, diarrhea, and abdominal cramps. Some victims also tend to have runny nose, asthma, cough, nose ulcers, wheezing, allergic reactions, and shortness of breath.
Heavy metal poisoning is serious stuff: In the worst cases, victims may suffer from changes in heart rhythm, liver and kidney damage, high blood pressure, paralysis, bronchitis, damage to blood vessels, dementia and even death. In pregnant women, overexposure to these harmful elements may even trigger miscarriage.
Here’s the good news: We’ve found an amazing all-natural, super-delicious cilantro pesto recipe that may be able to aid you in dealing with heavy metals. Aside from being inexpensive it is easy to make. for best results, please use organic ingredients!
