    This is crazy. How in the world did she have toxic levels of so many metals in her system? His hair needs to be tested as well. Did anyone else live in the home other than her mother? I haven't heard that she had been ill but maybe she didn't live there full time.

    I guess his family will have to go thru the same legal processes that her father did. Why should this take so long?

    Shouldn't getting a second opinion from a lab, be like getting a second opinion from a doctor. Why is this such a 'legal' process?

    I am betting whoever was her POA/agent or executor fought her father on allowing these tests. Which begs the question who is that individual and why?

    The question is, who is the 3rd party and why.

    Heaven forbid that FBI ever looked at the search history on my computer.

    http://house.wikia.com/wiki/Heavy_metal_poisoning

    Heavy metal toxicity is, in most cases, a zebra diagnosis - the condition itself is rare and the variety of symptoms mimic many other diseases. As a result, metal toxicity has a very high mortality rate even when victims seek timely medical treatment. In many other cases, the diagnosis is delayed long enough for permanent damage to occur. However, it is often found in clusters as from an epidemiological standpoint, the two most likely reasons for heavy metal toxicity are environmental contamination and occupational exposure. However, iron and lead exposure are fairly common and are usually diagnosed in a timely manner. However, the link between metal and mortality is ancient in origin, having been first described by Hippocrates who saw consistent symptoms in men who ran smelting operations. There is also a strong link between metal exposure and certain types of cancer

    In some cases, metal toxicity has been traced to food or nutritional supplements which were either tainted or were in and of themselves toxic. For example, Maria Palko poisoned her husband with a folk medicine that contained gold salts, and Arlene Cuddy used a folk remedy that contained a lead salt. Many athletes have deliberately injected themselves with mercury in the mistaken belief that it builds muscle mass. In one infamous case, cardiomyopathy among beer drinkers was traced to cobalt used to stabilize the head of foam. Toxic metals have also been found in illegal drugs.

    When 32-year-old Clueless star Brittany collapsed and died in the shower of her Hollywood home in December, an inquest ruled that she died from pneumonia complicated by her use of prescription drugs.

    Barely five months later, Murphy's screenwriter husband Simon Monjack, 40, went into cardiac arrest and died of the same causes at the same house.
    It was claimed by TMZ that an investigation was underway by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health because it was believed mould may have killed the couple.

    A spokesman at the department told Mail Online that they had no comment to make on the claim.

    Sharon Murphy said at the time: 'I have never been personally asked by the coroner or anyone from the Health Department to come and inspect my home for mould.'

    As Brittany Murphy's mother and husband continue to mourn her tragic Dec. 20 death Dec. 20, they have emerged to "set the record straight." Following interviews with the Associated Press and CNN, Sharon Murphy and Simon Monjack appeared on the Today show Thursday to speak at length with Matt Lauer about ongoing speculation regarding the 32 year-old actress' sudden demise.
    "Brittany was not taking any medication for her mood, for anorexia, or any mental illness," Monjack says in the sad, sometimes bizarre exchange, in which both he and his mother-in-law seem to be in a daze.

    On May 23, 2010, her widower Simon Monjack was found dead at the same Hollywood Hills residence.[39] In July 2010, Los Angeles Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter stated that the cause of his death was acute pneumonia and severe anemia.[40] It was reported that the Los Angeles County Department of Health had considered toxic mold in their house as a possible cause of the deaths, but this was dismissed by Ed Winter, who stated that there were "no indicators" that mold was a factor.[41] Murphy's mother Sharon described the reports of mold contributing to the deaths as "absurd" and went on to state that inspecting the home for mold was never requested by the Health Department.[42] In December 2011, Sharon Murphy changed her stance, announcing that toxic mold was indeed what killed her daughter and son-in-law, and filed a lawsuit against the attorneys who represented her in an earlier suit against the builders of the home where her daughter and son-in-law died.[43]

    On January 11, 2012, her father Angelo Bertolotti applied to the Superior Court of California requesting that the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office be required to hand over samples of his daughter's hair for independent testing.[44][45] The suit was dismissed on July 19, 2012 after Bertolotti failed to show up to two separate hearings.[46]

    From the same link. These were present.

    The exceptions to this are barium and aluminium, which can be removed efficiently by the kidneys.

    A research chemist could tell of which solution or combination of items would contain these 10 heavy metals. I know a couple, they can tell you what the basic chemicals that your shampoo are made of. Sodium Laurel Sulfate is one of those.

    (Don't ask me how I know....I don't want to type 5 pages.)

    Isn't Lithium considered a heavy metal?

    Is there any way she could have been on bipolar medication that wasn't prescribed to her?

    That really makes very little sense though considering her husband also died. I was always under the impression that it was maybe toxic mold. It always sounded like toxic mold poisoning to me. But apparently it's not..

    What happened to you, Brittany?

    Here are the elements that tested high

    Aluminum
    Manganese
    Copper
    Selenium
    Applying the hair with selenium-containing shampoos will
    result in high selenium levels that do not reflect body status.
    Otherwise, elevated levels have not been shown to be clinically
    relevant.
    Silver
    Tin
    Antimony
    Barium
    Barium is used in X-ray contrast media and in some salts for
    enemas. It is not a highly toxic element, so transient high levels
    in hair may be of small clinical significance. Many foods contain
    small concentrations of barium, and it responds somewhat like
    calcium, magnesium, and strontium to physiological controls.
    See strontium for more insight about high barium.
    Platinum
    Uranium

    Here's a couple links:

    http://www.metametrix.com/files/test...ts-hair-ig.pdf

    http://www.drkaslow.com/html/hair_analysis.html

    Some of these are essential elements. Was she taking any supplements?
    Also, hair dies may explain high levels of some, but I don't know "how high".

    I have no idea how she would have elevated levels of platinum???

    Platinum is used in some chemotherapy agents.

    Silver can be found in Colloidal Silver, and can interact with penicillamine, quinolone, tetracycline and thyroxine medications. I wonder if they were also using alternative medicine? Maybe when they were in Peurto Rico?

    I was just researching that and wondering the same thing about supplement use and/or the interaction with other medications. There are some crazy dangerous supplements marketed out there. I have seen people that have gotten into supplements to where they are taking multiple handfuls daily.

    [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medical_uses_of_silver"]Medical uses of silver - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame]

    Alternative medicine[edit]

    Since about 1990, there has been a resurgence of the promotion of colloidal silver as a dietary supplement or homeopathic remedy, marketed with claims of it being an essential mineral supplement, or that it can prevent or treat numerous diseases, such as cancer, diabetes, HIV/AIDS, herpes,[9] and tuberculosis.[12][53][54] No medical evidence supports the effectiveness of colloidal silver for any of these claimed indications.[11][12][55] Silver is not an essential mineral in humans; there is no dietary requirement for silver, and no such thing as a silver "deficiency".[12] There is no evidence that colloidal silver treats or prevents any medical condition, and it can cause serious and potentially irreversible side effects such as argyria.[12] In August 1999, the U.S. FDA banned colloidal silver sellers from claiming any therapeutic or preventive value for the product,[11] although silver-containing products continue to be promoted as dietary supplements in the U.S. under the looser regulatory standards applied to supplements.[11] The FDA has issued numerous Warning Letters to Internet sites that have continued to promote colloidal silver as an antibiotic or for other medical purposes.[56][57][58] Despite the efforts of the FDA, silver products remain widely available on the market today. A review of websites promoting nasal sprays containing colloidal silver suggested that information about silver-containing nasal sprays on the internet is misleading and inaccurate.[59]
    In 2002, the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) found there were no legitimate medical uses for colloidal silver and no evidence to support its marketing claims.[60] The U.S. National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) warns that marketing claims about colloidal silver are scientifically unsupported, that the silver content of marketed supplements varies widely, and that colloidal silver products can have serious side effects such as argyria.[12]
    In 2009, the USFDA issued a "Consumer Advisory" warning about the potential adverse effects of colloidal silver, and said that "...there are no legally marketed prescription or over-the-counter (OTC) drugs containing silver that are taken by mouth."[61] Quackwatch states that colloidal silver dietary supplements have not been found safe or effective for the treatment of any condition.[62] Consumer Reports lists colloidal silver as a "supplement to avoid", describing it as "likely unsafe".[63] The Los Angeles Times stated that "colloidal silver as a cure-all is a fraud with a long history, with quacks claiming it could cure cancer, AIDS, tuberculosis, diabetes and numerous other diseases."
