The kids doctor's office called with some of their labs back. The good news is that their CBCs are good and there was no lead found. I was not shocked to hear any of that as that is what I was hoping for. However, the heavy metals did not turn up so well. GG, Monkey and Peanut all had levels of arsenic in them. The normal range for it is 0-50. GG was 19, Monkey was 17 and Peanut was 46. Peanuts labs concern me BIG time. To the point where I had trouble sleeping because I really didn't know why there is arsenic in her body and why hers was so high. I did some research to find out how arsenic gets in your body. It is naturally occurring in our drinking water, salt, some foods, and wood. Now you might notice that I didn't have a level for Red that is because there was none found in him. This put in into a whole different thought process. Out of all my kids Red has had the least amount of vaccines. Do they put arsenic in vaccines? Well they put mercury in them so what makes us think they wouldn't put that in them. I did some more research to see if I could find arsenic in vaccines. My search came up empty. Though I did find some other very alarming chemicals and things that are put in vaccines. When I had my labs done I had small amounts of other heavy metals plus arsenic being the highest level of 7.7 and J got his back and his arsenic level was higher than mine. Something is not right that is all I have to say. I am very thankful that Red doesn't have this harmful metal in him but I want to know why the rest of us do! When we get the rest of our results back it should be very telling. I am waiting for 2 tests for Red and 3 for the other 3 kids. I did get Red's leptin back and it was fine so that is good. If anyone reads this and has any knowledge or understanding of arsenic if you could pass along your information to me that would be great! I just my kids completely healthy.
