Can Chelation Therapy Fight Cardiovascular Disease?

Chelation therapy is a method of using a special amino acid to flush heavy metal toxins from the body. First developed in the 1950s, this medical treatment is deemed “effective” and “safe” by the FDA for treating heavy metal poisoning, and lead poisoning in particular. Later, in 1973, the American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM) promoted chelation therapy as a new and advanced method of treating cardiovascular disease. Since the late 1970s, several ACAM physicians have published cases studies in which evidence suggests chelation therapy may effective prevent heart disease, as well as prevent other cardiovascular diseases. In 2003, the ACAM launched a collaborative study to better understand the cardiovascular benefits of the treatment.
