Soap should do more than clean off Dirt and Germs: Toxic Metals are Everywhere.
Popular soap brands are great for dirt and germs, but they are not all that effective at cleaning off metal oxide dust. Lead, mercury, cadmium, zinc, chromium, arsenic, silver, selenium, cobalt, and most other toxic metals and oxides are present in many products and surfaces we touch daily. In some cases, metals can be found in the soil in your backyard, in the water supply, light bulbs, toys, tools, artificial turf, broom handles, diaper bags, painted walls, shoes, old plastic products…assume toxic metal dust is everywhere. Note: Hygenall products are not a cure for metal or lead poisoning, nor will it protect you from metals in water or if you inhale metal dust. If you suspect lead or any metal poisoning, seek medical attention immediately.
What Does Hygenall Do?
When used daily, as directed, Hygenall removes lead and other heavy metals that may have accumulated on the skin’s surface. The wipe material carefully removes metal oxide from the top layer of the skin. The surfactant’s soothing soapy lather then carries metal oxide, dirt, and germs off and away from your skin. Just rinse with water for a clean, fresh feeling. Hygenall is not a cure for lead poisoning, nor will it protect you from lead in water or if you inhale lead dust. If you suspect lead poisoning, contact your doctor immediately.
Will Soap and Water or Alcohol-based Sanitizers Clean off Heavy Metals?
Soap and water will have a small level of efficacy, but not nearly what Hygenall products provide, and alcohol based sanitizers should not be considered an effective metal dust cleaner at all.
Lead in the Home
and childhood lead poisoning
With news stories of lead in the water supply, on toys, even Christmas decorations, people are exposed to lead and other toxic heavy metals more than ever before. Accumulation can cause severe medical problems for children and adults.
Lead oxide is one of the most powerful neurotoxins in the world, and according to the CDC, there is no acceptable level of lead in children. Even in microscopic, unseen quantities, children can experience neurotoxic poisoning. The reason is that children, as they are growing, use much more calcium than a full-grown adult. Calcium is what the body uses as fuel for the brain, and the body thinks lead and some other metals are calcium! Lead poisoning can affect nearly every system in the body, causing learning disabilities, behavioral problems, and, at very high levels, seizures, coma and even death. Because lead poisoning often occurs with no obvious symptoms, it frequently goes unrecognized.
Heavy Metals in the Workplace
exposure through touching and tainted clothes
Workers in can be exposed to heavy metals by touching surfaces, tools, or working with metals, or chemicals that contain dangerous metal oxides, such as anti-corrosion coatings. Through tainted clothes, skin, hair, tools and vehicles, workers can potentially expose their home and families to microscopic metal oxides that like to accumulate on door knobs, steering wheels, radio controls, refrigerators, countertops, kitchen tables, etc..
Metals in the Environment
metals are naturally occurring and manufactured
Lead is a naturally occurring bluish-gray metal found in small amounts in the earth’s crust, and comes from decayed uranium. Other metals are naturally occurring as well, however these metals are increasingly present in our environment due to burning fossil fuels, mining, and manufacturing. Metals are used in paints, plastics, anti-corrosion coatings, production and recycling of batteries, ammunition, spent ammunition primer dust, electronic fabrication and recycling, plumbing, military and law enforcement training, battlefield contamination, and a wide range of everyday products used in the home, school and workplace.
