Here's an important site to read about DMPS. Several people have had horrific side effects from DMPS. In addition, it discusses why either a DMSA or DMPS "challenge" test is not useful and is likely fraudulent.http://www.dmpsbackfire.com/default.shtml
The QuackWatch site also has an article about the invalidity of challenge tests.

Here's a site to read about Andy Cutler's chelation protocol.http://www.livingnetwork.co.za/chelatio ... -protocol/
Lastly, you may wish to read one of my earlier posts on chelation which has a link to a paper that states that mercury, unlike lead, is naturally excreted by the body with a half life of 1 to 2 months. There are also links to a series of papers where DMSA was used in children with autism.introductions-f20/topic19927.html#p192205
