Uranium toxicity, should you be concerned?
Do you have uranium toxicity? Get yourself tested here.
Most people when they hear about uranium they usually think about nuclear power or nuclear weapons however very few people consider the fact that they could have uranium toxicity or uranium in their body causing them serious health problems. Uranium is a toxic heavy metal and it is very toxic to humans. Uranium is linked to the disruption and damage of major body organs such as the kidney’s, brain, liver, thyroid and heart. Uranium apart from being a toxic heavy metal is also radioactive which means that it can cause you radioactive poisoning.
Uranium is also carcinogenic which means that it can cause cancer, mutations of human cells, damages DNA and causes deformities.
Uranium can easily get into your body, that’s because of the large scale mining of the toxic substance that ends up in the air and water supplies, consequently uranium is also consumed through food production and the dangerous by products of uranium usage in nuclear power plants and nuclear bomb testing ends up in our environment and ultimately in our body. So the real question is are you toxic with uranium?
Symptoms of uranium toxicity
Symptoms associated with uranium poisoning vary depending on the amount you are currently exposed to, here are some of the more common symptoms:
- Bleeding (bleeding gums, scurvy, easy busing)
- Kidney disease
- Metal health problems
- Nervous system problems
- Thyroid problems
- Mutations (physical changes)
- Loss of bone formation (Osteoporosis)
- Gastrointestinal upset
- Fatty liver
- Poor immunity
- Chronic fatigue
- Irritated eyes
- Radiation poisoning symptoms
Additional symptoms of uranium toxicity
Uranium toxicity also interferes with several important nutrients, therefore deficiency symptoms of these nutrients can be indications of uranium toxicity. Protective antioxidant vitamins such as vitamin A, C and E are affected. Minerals such as iodine which protects the body from radiation is also affected, good iodine levels are essential for the functioning of thyroid so thyroid problems could be indications of uranium toxicity.
It’s important to understand that vitamin & mineral supplementation can NOT resolve uranium toxicity and may cover up symptoms leading to bigger problems. Detoxification of uranium is essential to properly restoring vitamin and mineral imbalances.
Vitamin A deficiency – Mouth ulcers, poor night vision, acne, frequent colds or infections, dry flaky skin, dandruff, thrush or cystitis, diarrhoea can all be indications of uranium toxicity.
Vitamin C deficiency – Frequent colds, lack of energy, frequent infections, bleeding or tender gums, easy bruising, nosebleed, slow wound healing, red pimples on skin can all be indications of uranium toxicity.
Vitamin E deficiency – Lack of sex drive, exhaustion after light exercise, easy bruising, slow wound healing, varicose veins, loss of muscle tone, infertility can all be indications of uranium toxicity.
Iodine deficiency symptoms: (See iodine testing here)
- Weight gain
- Physical or mental fatigue or lethargy
- Depression or irritability
- Dry skin and or hair
- Muscle pain
- Painful periods
- Intolerance to cold or cold hands and feet
- Constipation, gas, bloating or indigestion
- Sore throat or nasal congestion
- Poor memory

As mentioned earlier uranium is radioactive and can seriously interfere with iodine who’s job it is to protect the body from radiation, even in small amounts uranium toxicity can affect iodine, iodine is essential to the proper functioning of your thyroid. If you have imbalances in your thyroid its important to test for iodine deficiency and test for thyroid hormone imbalances.
Uranium toxicity & genetics
Some people are genetically predisposed to uranium toxicity, this is because certain genes belonging to liver detoxification pathways that normally deal with uranium detoxification have been deleted, in these cases a genetics test can confirm and a specialized nutritional program can help the individual detoxify uranium.
