Wilson's Disease: Causes, Tests and Treatment Options
by Janet Rena
Copper or Cuprum is a trace mineral, considered to play a vital role in maintaining normal processes within the body. It is the structural component of many enzymes in our body systems, and is responsible in assisting iron to be utilized by the tissues. It also removes free radicals from the body and helps prevent damage in cell structures, making it a powerful antioxidant. These are just some of the many benefits we could get from copper.
But what happens when this powerful mineral goes beyond the level of what is tolerated and needed by the body? It then becomes a problem --- from being an antioxidant, a free-radical fighter, it becomes a deadly poison, a threat to life. This is what happens in Wilson’s Disease.
This must-have book outlines the causes, diagnostic tests and treatment options for the disease.
