Nature did not design humans to come in contact with the kind of toxicity which industrial pollution and medical malpractice exposed some of us to. We are not tuna. We were meant to stay away from heavy metals, not to mine them and then put them, highly concentrated and "enhanced" with other toxins, right into people's mouths or inject them into our babies. There is noting "natural" about that. It's plain stupid if not downright criminal, but we didn't know any better. Now we do know.
People who are still under the illusion that some plant from the paradise will do a better job of chelating than actual (synthetic or not) chelators are playing the mercury/arsenic/cadmium/lead roulette with their on lives, and, what is far worse, creating a cult of Cilantro "chelation" which others may follow because it sounds so good.
I am the 1st 2admit that Cilantro is making me feel better, but so what. So is good old fashioned ice cream (but only since I chelated enough—and NOT with Cilantro, mind you—to be able to tolerate it at all). Feeling better doesn't prove anything. I felt better the day I got a root canal filled with Amalgam which sealed an aluminium pin in my jaw (that was the tipping point, the one thing which so totally pushed my health over the cliff). We, the actual victims of heavy metal poisoning, should know better shouldn't we. Feeling good does not prove anything at all.
In order to chelate safely, you need precise control of the amount of heavy metals you are releasing for possible redistribution in order to minimize its deadly effects. Cilantro doesn't give you that kind of control (assuming tht it even chelates at all).
Stop the Cilantro madness. Listen to Andrew H. Cutler, PhD PE. He may not be right about everything (he took me for somebody else when he read one of my posts), but there is no bigger authority in chelation in this gallaxy than him.
As far as I am concerned, Andrew Cutler's book is the holy Bible of safe chelation and he is the ultimate guru. Listen to him if you want to get well!
