Subject: Help or Hype

I recently read about oral (EDTA) chelation and claims on how it can
improve one's health and expand one's lifetime.  I briefly repeat some of
the claims.  Can anyone verify this?

In so many words it said:

1.	EDTA improves circulation.

2.	EDTA in bloodstream aids in partial dissolution of calcium in the
arteries (in other words, it reduces hardening or cloging of the arteries)

3.	Chelation reduces free iron and copper which reduces free-radicals.

4.	You can take their product in an oral form (of chelation).

Their conclusion is that oral chelation products can:
(1) help keep the cardio-vascular system in better health, and 
(2) reduce free-radical damage.

Does anyone on this list know if this is help or hype?
