Chelation therapy has long been scorned by many in the medical community. But after a major study suggested it was somewhat effective for heart disease, the alternative health treatment is once again going under the microscope. A second study called TACT 2 (Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy) will assess chelation’s heart-health benefits for patients with diabetes.
Lead exposure may be responsible for nearly 10 times more deaths in the United States than previously thought, according to a new study from The Lancet Public Health.
Dr. Jeff Baker, of Clinical Research Prime in Idaho Falls, Idaho, explains how removing toxic metals from the body with chelation therapy could help patients with cardiovascular issues. His clinic is a participating site for TACT2.
TACT2 investigator Dr. Richard Nahas will present a free information session on diabetes, heart disease, and the TACT2 study on Tuesday, February 13, 7:00–8:30 p.m., at Ben Franklin Place in Ottawa, ON. RSVP required. Contact 613.727.7246 or email@example.com for more information.
Listen to Dr. Nahas talk about the history, goals, and significance of TACT2 in the video below.
