overdose of poh chai pills? :D
i guess if you have a specific test requirement most labs like pathlab etc will be able to do it. mercury and lead poisoning are more common than we dare to acknowledge.

Careful about consuming of too much of 'China' tonic or "medicine"... I suspect they contain mecury or lead.... and probably cause cancer... :( With no family history of cancer, a relative on mine suddenly develop one and died 2 months later. He was recovering from an auto accident and secretly consuming those stuff on a long term basis.

I think poichai yuen is made in malaysia and tested locally... :D

Its good to check out... tried that lab next to stand chart in usj taipan

tbearer,

Can i know why u need this test ??

If u r working in O&G industry especially in offshore oil rigs, it's the legal requirements for ur company to conduct yearly medical checkup for u. So why waste money ??

Howver u insists to do it urself, just ask private clinic Dr. to do it for u. Bear in mind that they have to send it to special lab to analyse it. one of it is chemlab.

heard and read that those of us who have amalgam filling (the black type of filling in teeth), may be at higher risk of mercury poisoning.

i dont consume chinese medicine. so thought of taking the test as precaution.
