ISRAEL - Toxic Metals Seeping into Our Bones

Arno Froese

A team from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem examined the human remains at a burial ground in Italy that remained in use until the 17th century. From the fragments of 130 people at the site in Rome, researchers analyzed the composition of chemicals in each person’s bones. Their findings reveal that the levels of lead pollution in human bones closely mirrors the historical rates of lead production worldwide throughout the centuries.

Today, many people probably think of lead being something you find in paint and metal pipes. However, the first lead boom took place 2,500 years ago with the production of coins. According to researchers, this period reached its peak during the time of the Roman Empire before falling off again during the Middle Ages. Around 1,000 years ago, lead production rose again, sparked by the mining of silver in Germany. After that, expansion into the Americas and the Industrial Revolution sent lead production (and exposure) to new heights.

Professor Yigal Erel [says] that even green technology, like solar panels that deteriorate over time, release their toxic elements into the air we breathe as they break down. The result may lead future studies to find even more lead in our bones than ever before.

“Any expanded use of metals should go hand in hand with industrial hygiene, ideally safe metal recycling and increased environmental and toxicological consideration in the selection of metals for industrial use.”, 16 August 2021

Arno's Commentary

The very creation of man begins with earth (dust). We read in Genesis 2:7: “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” We also know that out of the ground, the Lord God created vegetation (see verse 9). This reminds us of the apocryphal story, when the devil came before God and told Him: I too can create man, having a piece of clay in his hand. To which God replied, “Get your own clay.” While this is fictional, it has a shadow of truth; man can do nothing by himself. He cannot create; he only can take created components and mold them into instruments, machines, computers, and even artificial intelligence.

The real pollution is sin: disobedience to God, being independent from God, and believing that man can do everything—or to express it with a modern slogan, “You can be anything you put your mind to.” Try to have a full head of hair if you are bald, or be seven feet tall. Try to reject Hebrews 9:27: “…It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” We can try but it won’t work.
