Chelation Therapy in World War II

chelationWhen my grandfather worked in the military, he had to perform a number of jobs. He was in the Navy and he would do work on the ships during World War II. He had a great deal of experience with mechanical work, but he also did some of the more menial tasks, including painting the ships. However, this was a time when painting ships could be a lot more dangerous than one would think.

Because paint used to be commonly made from lead, people who spent a lot of time around it could find themselves afflicted with the symptoms of lead poisoning. My grandfather and a number of his fellow Navy buddies had to go through chelation therapy in order to get the lead out of their systems and stay healthy.
