Tin toxicity & tin poisoning

Do you have tin toxicity?  Get yourself tested here.

Tin is a very common product and it can also be a toxic heavy metal to humans, yet we use this product in many different applications including storing our food.  Tin poisoning is considered a rare problem but it is in fact, a very common toxicity problem for many people.  Tin when mixed with certain other compounds can be as toxic to humans as cyanide.  Tin when in toxic amounts can lead to detoxification problems interfering with liver enzymes that help you stay healthy and tin toxicity can lead to serious health problems that are often missed or un-diagnosed by medical science.

Tin is used in many applications such as food storage (Canned foods), is used to make alloys, solder, kitchen utensils, used in metal dental amalgams, is combined with copper to make bronze, used to make stainless steel, in cosmetics and many other applications.  So it’s no wonder that so many people have excessive amounts of tin in their body which can build up over time.  Humans can absorb tin from foods, inhale tin and absorb tin through the skin.  The question is are you toxic with tin?

Tin toxicity symptoms

Tin toxicity symptoms can be very hard to recognize, this is because of the way tin manipulates certain nutrients and disables detoxification of other toxic metals, often signs of other toxic metals can be the result of tin toxicity here is some examples of tin toxicity, degrees of toxicity can vary:

  • Eye & skin irritation
  • Headaches
  • Gastrointestinal upsets (vomiting, diarrhoea, cramps)
  • Dizziness
  • Severe sweating
  • Urination problems (incontinence)
  • Depression
  • Liver damage
  • Immune dysfunction
  • Cognitive dysfunction (Anger, sleeping disorders, forgetfulness)
  • Shortage of red blood cells
  • Damaged chromosomal (Genetic damage or altered genes)

Additional symptoms of tin toxicity

Tin also has the ability to interfere with essential nutrients such as iron and copper therefore deficiency symptoms of these nutrients can also be signs of tin toxicity.  In addition, tin toxicity causes a reduction in the detoxification of drugs and toxins, it does this by reducing the enzyme Cytochrome P450, this problem alone can cause many other toxic problems that cause serious disease.

It’s important to understand that vitamin & mineral supplementation can NOT resolve tin toxicity and may cover up symptoms leading to bigger problems.  Detoxification of tin is essential to properly restoring vitamin, mineral & enzyme imbalances.  Additional symptoms of tin toxicity include:

Iron deficiency – Anemia, pale skin, sore tongue, fatigue, listlessness, loss of appetite, nausea and sensitivity to cold can all be indications of tin toxicity.

Copper deficiency & tin toxicity:

  • Neurological system – Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease
  • Mental cognition – impaired mental function, dyslexia, learning disabilities, emotional disturbances manic disorders
  • Cardiovascular system – aneurysms, heart enlargement, heart failure, infarcts, ischemia, heart disease, high cholesterol (high LDL and a low HDL ), hypertension
  • Blood – iron deficiency anaemia
  • Genetic – Menkes (Steely hair) disease
  • Cancer – some malignancies (catabolic or highly metastatic types)
  • Immune system – bacterial infections, allergies, scurvy
  • Hormonal – blood sugar imbalances (hyperglycemia)
  • Musculoskeletal – rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, gout

Copper deficiency symptoms above can all be indications of tin toxicity.

Cytochrome P450 deficiency – Inability to properly detoxify, see genetics & detoxification problems stage 1 detoxification.

Tin Toxicity & Genetics

Some people are genetically predisposed to tin toxicity, this is because certain genes belonging to liver detoxification pathways that normally deal with tin detoxification have been deleted, in these cases a genetics test can confirm and a specialized nutritional program can help the individual detoxify tin properly.  Tin toxicity can also cause gene detoxification problems see genetics & detoxification problems stage 1 detoxification.

Do you have tin toxicity?

The best way to find out if you have toxic levels of tin and or if you’re at risk from tin related disease is by a hair mineral analysis, this simple home test shows if you are toxic and guidance can be given to how to detoxify the tin in your situation as everyone is different.

Detoxification of tin

Often people attempt to detoxify tin without knowing if they have toxicity and without knowing the best ways to achieve results.  Many heavy metal detoxification supplements on the market do not work and often contain toxic heavy metals themselves.

Tin is a very toxic metal and each person who has been exposed to the metal is affected in different ways, this can cause detoxification problems.

It’s important to have yourself tested by professionals that can guide you through the detoxification process that will work for you personally.  It’s also possible that you may have a gene mutations which can make any basic detoxification program useless and or harmful.
