DIRECT QUOTES OF SUPPORT FOR ACAM'S CHELATION PROTOCOL
NEBRASKA: After an extensive review of available research, literature, and expert testimony, the Chleation Therapy Techncial Review Committee has found that Chelation Therapy is probably safe if standard protocols (The American College for Advancement in Medicine, for example) are used in the infusion of ethylenediamineteraacetic acid ("EDTA"). The technical committee cannot determine at this time whether or not chelation is an effective therapy for anything other than the removal of heavy metals, and consequently, recommends that there be no new legislation enacted with regard to this issue.
