hello and welcome to health care magic ,Chelation therapy is one of several effective treatments for lead poisoning. However, available scientific proof does not support that it is effective for treatment of other conditions such as cancer. Chelation therapy can be toxic and has the potential to cause kidney damage, irregular heartbeat, and even death.take care
