Question Copper toxicity?

I've been reading about zinc deficiency and copper toxicity. Does anyone have a good comprehensive list of symptoms for either? And has anyone gone though this? I'm reading coppor toxicity could be pretty common as we get it in both our chocolate and our coffee!

Re: Copper toxicity?

Ann Louise Gittleman(spelling?) wrote a book specifically about copper toxicity. You are only supposed to consume a very small amount of copper. If you are vegetarian and taking a multi-vitamin you are getting TOO much copper. I discovered this because a hallmark of copper toxicity is severe fatigue. When you consume too much copper you imbalance your zinc. Read her book...i think you can find it on google books.

Oh yes, apparently it's so easy to get too much into your body!
