Hope you read this TJ.  Stumbled on this latest research article:

http://www.uq.edu.au/research/index.html?page=52600&pid=0 - UQ researcher finds sulphate levels linked to health disorders

Quoted Text
Very little is known about the mineral but low sulphate levels have been found to affect growth development. They have also been linked to diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, schizophrenia, autism, motor neurone disease and cirrhosis of the liver.

“The kidneys control the levels of many minerals in the body and we've isolated a gene, Nas1, which plays a key role in sulphate absorption from the diet and regulates its excretion into the urine,” Dr Markovich said.

“Most sulphate in the body comes from food and if there is too much, which is generally the case in Western diets, the excess is excreted.

“But when the Nas1 gene is missing, the body excretes large amounts of sulphate and blood levels drop to five times lower than normal.”


The things that are being uncovered nowadays - fascinating times!

Interesting article Symbi.  Thanks for sharing!  I guess if you pair up deficient sulfite oxidase with a missing Nas1, it would be no surprise if detoxification is very slow.  Sounds very Explorer-ish to me.

Exactly what I was thinking!  The associated diseases are pretty familiar, except the Alzheimers and Parkinsons - hopefully ones we'll skip! What was I saying? he he
