I have been to two different doctors. My primary doctor has been giving me chelation therapy to help with my MS. The other doctor told me that chelation is dangerous to the pancreas. Is this true?

Properly given, by the protocol used by the American College for Advancement in Medicine, IV chelation therapy with EDTA is one of the safest medical therapies on the planet. I have never heard of damage being done to the pancreas, nor can I think of any mechanism by which this could happen and I have given around 12,000 treatments to 400 patients over the past 13 years. I have never seen damage to any organ caused by this therapy. If this doctor has any evidence that it could damage the pancreas, ask him/her to fax it to me at 707-575-6830. I am betting I will not be hearing from that doctor.
