Chelation therapy has been around - and has provoked criticism - since the 1950s.
Chelation therapy is the administration of chelating agents to remove heavy metals from the blood. This is beneficial for reducing oxidative stress on your body and is particularly helpful in helping to treat heart/cardiovascular disease.
Despite a lack of conclusive clinical evidence and the skepticism of the medical community, passionate supporters have kept the therapy alive in alternative medicine circles.
Now, TACT, the Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy, could change the medical community’s skepticism into outright promotion and clinical application of this long-time controversial therapy.
