Heavy metal exposure has been linked to various neurocognitive disorders, including autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), according to multiple studies. In addition, children are more susceptible to the harmful effects of heavy metal ingestion than adults, as noted in a 2019 study published in the scientific journal BioMetal.
A 2019 study by BioMetal scientific journal noted that “the implications of heavy metals with regards to children’s health have been noted to be more severe compared to adults.”
