Chromium Exposure Testing
Chromium comes in two forms: chromium III and chromium IV, which is much more toxic.
Although it’s naturally occurring in the environment like the other heavy metals, too much chromium can be harmful to your health, and especially your respiratory system.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), chromium is used:
- mainly for making steel and other alloys
- for chrome plating, the manufacture of dyes and pigments, leather and wood preservation, and treatment of cooling tower water
- smaller amounts are used in drilling muds, textiles, and toner for copying machines
Chromium toxicity is a serious condition that could cause harmful effects. To get your blood levels tested, contact Test Smartly Labs.
