AT A GLANCE: 1 out of 3 patients who undergo an MRI (or MRA) receive it “with contrast”, meaning the patient is injected with “Gadolinium”, a metal substance used to enhance the contrast of the images. However, recent evidence has shown many patients who receive contrast have toxic levels of gadolinium retained in their body, wreaking havoc on their health and causing a wide-range of symptoms and on-going health problems.

VIDEO ABOUT WIFE OF CHUCK NORRIS AND HER NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE WITH GADOLINIUM TOXICITY AFTER THREE MRI's
"We've been blessed enough to be able to afford the alternative or the integrative treatments, modalities and medicines that are out there [to treat gadolinium toxicity]. But there are millions of people that don't have that, because insurance doesn't pay. We've spent well over $1 million dollars, if not more, to save my life."

The Dangers of MRI's: Chuck Norris & His Wife Ring The Alarm
Please watch the remarkable video gadolinium during three MRI’s where she was given contrast-enhancing dye. The video is a MUST watch.showing action star Chuck Norris and his wife Gena share the dramatic story of how Gena was unknowingly poisoned with toxic levels of
MRI is a medical abbreviation for “magnetic resonance imaging”. MRI scans are used in radiology to take pictures showing the internals of the head or various sections of the body.
Approximately 1 out of 3 patients who undergo an MRI (or MRA) scan, are injected with a contrast-enhancing agent (sometimes called ‘dyes’, or ‘media’) to help improve the quality of the MRI images.
These contrast-enhancing agents are primarly made up of the metallic substance, gadolinium. A patient that undergoes an MRI with contrast is injected with Gadolinium BEFORE the MRI scan.

Gadolinium Deposition Disease: The Toxic Retention of Gadolinium & The Associated Symptoms
Twenty-million patients each year undergo an MRI or MRA scan where they are injected with gadolinium-based contrast agents (”GBCA”).
In most of these patients, the injected GBCA (ie. gadolinium) is expelled by the body shortly after the scan. This is accomplished through normal urination.
However, recent studies have shown many patients are unable to expel the GBCA (gadolinium), and instead retain toxic levels of gadolinium in their brain, bones and organ tissue, causing a wide variety of on-going symptoms.
It was once believed by the medical community that only patients with impaired renal (kidney) function may have issues expelling the injected gadolinium from their systems.
But today's research clearly demonstrates that toxic gadolinium retention can occur in patients with healthy renal function. In other words, it can happen to anyone.
Patients with toxic gadolinium retention are said to have Gadolinium Deposition Disease -- the clinical name for this scary condition.
Symptoms Associated With Gadolinium Deposition Disease
The symptoms linked with toxic gadolinium retention are wide-ranging and many. Here are the most commonly reported symptoms...
- Chronic headaches
- Unexplained pains (ie. sharp, cutting or burning pains in the arms, legs or torso; tingling and/or prickling pains)
- Deep bone and joint pains
- Changes to skin (ie. tightness, thickening, lesions, changes in color, etc)
- Cognitive impairment
- Brain fog
- Feelings of sharp pins and needles
- Nausea and/or vomiting
- Muscle twitches or severe weakness
- Severe degredation of vision and dry eyes
- Trouble with swallowing
- Trouble speaking (weakening of voice)
- Itching skin
- Hair Loss
Did you develop any of the above symptoms linked to Gadolinium Deposition Disease (GDD)?
FDA Issues “Black Box Warning” To Avoid Gadolinium-Based Contrast Agents (GBCAs) In Certain Patients...
The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in 2007 issued its most severe warning concerning Gadolinium-based contrast agents, the “Black Box Warning”, urging the complete avoidance of gadolinium use in MRIs and MRAs -- but only for patients suspected or known to have impaired drug elimination.
At the time, the FDA did indeed acknowledge the serious issue of gadolinium retention in patients who underwent MRIs and MRAs, but basically only those with impaired renal (ie. kidney) function.
Now in 2018, there is a statistically sizeable amount of data and evidence that demonstrates the risk of toxic gadolinium retention in patients with perfectly normal and healthy renal function.
Scientists and the medical community are now urging the FDA to re-evaluate its warnings for Gadolinium use in MRI and MRA scans.
2017: FDA Votes 13-1, Recommending New Warnings Regarding Gandolinium Retention In Organs & Brain
In 2017, the FDA voted to issue new warnings and prescribing information for gandolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs) in regards to toxic retention in patients’ organs and brain.
While much of the medical community felt this warning should have included stricter mandates, the FDA issued a statement stating adverse effects of gadolinium retention are “still under investigation”.
2017: Europe Recommends A Ban Suspending The Use of Gadolinium-Based Contrast Agents
The European Medicines Agency Committee, which is Europe’s version of our Food & Drug Administration, did move swiftly and aggressively after evaluating recent evidence -- recommending a ban suspending the use of gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs) in patients undergoing MRIs.
The Law Is Your Protection and Hope:
What To Do If You Think You May Be Affected By Gadolinium Toxicity
The law protects patients from dangerous drugs and chemicals that can cause serious health consequences.
If you (or a loved one) underwent an MRI (or MRA) with a contrast-enhancing injection, and feel you may be affected by gadolinium toxicity (medically referred to as 'Gadolinium Deposition Disease'), a conversation with a gadolinium toxicity attorney may be one of the most important things you can do.
As a result of the manufacturers of GBCAs failing to properly warn the public of these known risks, you or your loved one may have suffered significant health issues, emotional and physical stress, along with unintended financial burdens -- like doctor or hospital visits, time off work, necessary treatments and/or surgeries to treat your symptoms, and so on.
As such, you may be entitled to financial help in the form of legal compensation -- money awarded from individual lawsuits, settlements and/or class action lawsuits.
