I had never heard of EDTA either, thought I'd move this topic over here. Welcome Gwoiler, I hope that you can give us some first-hand info on this stuff... http://www.gordonresearch.com/edta.htm
Exposure to toxic chemicals such as insecticides, solvents or jet fuel may also damage the nervous system.
Individuals who have been exposed to these chemicals typically experience problems such as insomnia, headache, intermittent fever, impaired ability to concentrate, fatigue, impotence, skin rashes and impaired immune function.
"Miscellaneous uses of EDTA:
In 1959 F. Bersworth and Martin Rubin got a patent for the prophylactic use of Ca EDTA, to be blended with food products, to PREVENT metal poisoning. Today, with our food supply so challenged, this idea appears quite rational. We know that EDTA protects against many toxic metals including nickel, cadmium (as long as dose is high enough), vanadium (which some research links to diabetes), cobalt, iron, and copper overload. EDTA has also been shown to help lower the body burden of internally deposited fission products (U.S. Atomic Energy Commission) . In fact, a rat study showed significant protection against the toxicity of cisplatin. " http://www.gordonresearch.com/Oral%20EDTA.htm
