I suspect arsenic poisoning in a friend. This may have been going on for years. She is battling cancer, so many of her symptoms are also side effects of chemo treatment. Will a hair sample alone detect it?

  • Do you mean intentional? Arsenic poisoning involves a host of testing from serum blood, (CBC, levels, etc.) urinalysis, nerve conduction tests, and others such as ekg (heart arrythymias are common), and x-ray (certain GI abnormalities). Arsenic is a suspected carcinogenic, so complications there. Need more info: sbork@medlawresources.com

  • I believe I am being arsenic poisoned by my medincine given to me by the Veterans Affiars. Sicne I have been receiving this generic capsule A white vitamin e sort of capsle on it my health has declined sharply over the period of 6 years. Does arsenic poising cause the pregnancy hormone not to show up on a urine pregnancy test? I do know where to get started. I am taking an unmarked sample to poison control as soon as I can. And since the poison control lab is government sanctioned I will take chemistry and do my own testing in class. I will find out. Perfect conspiracy for a mentally ill patient to rectify. I will find out what vitamins I have to take for my illness and take them. No more being poisoned by the govenment through HMOs just so the gov can save money from the mentally ill. Tired of feel sick as a dog all the time. I was as healthy as an ox 6 years ago without half of the mental issues I have now. Psychological disturbances are one of the symptoms. I can go a minute a day without hearing voices I hear the constantly now and have mania like never before. What can I do here? If the government is poisoning veterans and mentally ill to get rid of us slowly but surely. No wonder life expectancy of a psych patient is only 50. This is nuts. I am going to research vitamins and diet. I refuse to be poisoned to death.

  • I suspect my Mother was poisoned to death by my sister who is a healthcare provider, and had access to hospital drugs. My Mother had colitis, but soon after my sister moved in she could not eat, or get out of bed. She died from stomach bleeding. My father also took ill after my Mothers death, he complained of severe weakness and dizziness. My sister was still living at home with my Father and I had a suspicion she was doing something, so I told her if anything happens to him I will do a full toxicology report, he started feeling better soon after my phone call to her. The question I want to know is can I find out if my Mother was poisoned even though she is buried now? Any help or info would be much appreciated.

They were doing tests on Napoleon's hair, I saw this on TV, and they could tell when he was eating more arsenic and when he was eating less by his hair, and obviously that's pretty old.
