involved in many functions of the body, including immunity, brain and
gastrointestinal tract maturation, and the regulation of metals.
Metallothionein is essential for maintenance of the proper ratio of
copper to zinc. So much so, that a zinc/copper imbalance is the main
indicator for a metallothionein malfunction. The malfunction could be
due to a genetic weakness but may also be primarily induced by
nutritional deficiencies and imbalances. The primary nutrient needed in the
formation of metallothionein is zinc.
Therefore, metals that
compete with zinc such as mercury and cadmium will eventually disturb
metallothionein function. Metallothionein is crucial to the body in
regulating and coping with toxic metals. It envelopes metals such as
mercury, lead and cadmium, binding with them and carrying them out of the
body. Mercury or lead in the gut require metallothionein in order to
disable the toxic substance.
When mercury is ingested
in any form, it produces destructive changes in the mucous membrane linings
of the gastro-intestinal tract. It enters the blood circulation, travels to
the tissues, and then damages literally every cell with which it comes into
contact. Mercury has a long history of use as a disinfectant and
antibiotic. It is still used as an antibacterial preservative
so it is certain that it would kill at least some of the flora. Ideally,
ingested mercury is bound to metallothionein and transported out of the body
through the bile and through the kidneys.
Without the effect of
metallothionein, the toxic metals will interact with chemicals called
sulfhydral groups. A combination of sulphur and hydrogen, these groups
have tremendous power to bind to mercury, lead, and cadmium but especially
mercury. Among the sulfhydral groups in the intestines are the enzymes
that break down casein and gluten.Toxic metals and
low zinc interfere with the enzyme functions giving rise to gluten
intolerance to grains such as wheat, rye, barley and oats and to dairy
