Under Federal Law, the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act
201.100(d)(1) etc., it is legal to use and treat with EDTA.
The law does not limit the manner in which a drug is used
once it is approved for marketing.
EDTA is approved for marketing and medical use. Once

It should be noted that, though the AMA implies that
chelation therapy is investigational, it is certainly not a
new or experimental treatment. In fact, it is probably one
of the most clinically tested therapies in medicine.
Hundreds of clinical reports are available on the success
of chelation therapy by many different doctors on many
different patient ailments. ACAM is a medical specialty
group directly concerned with the continuing evaluation of
chelation therapy. They have been and are still accumulating
clinical data on the treatment connected with the use of
The documented clinical results are compelling testimony
to the fact that EDTA is producing health benefits for
circulatory problems, with safety, that cannot be matched
with other forms of therapy.
EDTA has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration for use in chelating heavy metals,
arrhythmias, thallasemia, hypercalcemia and digitalis
intoxication. It is approved for use in thousands of foods
by the FDA.
EDTA has been approved for use in Canada for people with
cardiovascular disease. Alaska and Washington state have
passed laws stating that any insurance companies doing
business in their state must pay for alternative therapies.
New Zealand has passed legislation making it illegal to
perform surgery without first discussing alternative
therapies, as chelation, first.
Hormone research and therapy is showing that degenerative
diseases advance rapidly when levels of hormones are
diminished and reverse when the hormone levels are kept
Many physicians are hesitant to offer chelation and
hormone and nutritional therapies purely because of pressure
from peers, hospitals, drug companies, Political lobbies,
insurance companies, HMO's and ignorance.
