Death from heavy metals; a reality.

Today we remember our loving son, Raymond Marc Zachry, not because of another outstanding accomplishment – rather it is the six-year anniversary of his sudden, unattended death.

Six years; and only denial from the coroner who claims he died from a heart attack…with 1950 mcg/L of barium in his blood toxicology.  Enough, says toxicologist Dr. Woody Hartgrove, to have rapidly caused his death.  It would cause his heart to stop…paralyze his limbs… and reduce the available potassium to cause his heart to stop according to Center for Disease Control material safety data report.  The amount was nearly equal to the amount Marie Robard, a student in Texas, took from her high school chemical laboratory to poison her father.

Heavy metal contamination found in Florida soil, as reported in Miami Herald.

Miami Herald reported this story of a contaminated site that was being closed to residents due to several hazardous chemicals found in the soil.  Barium was included in  that sampling.

Last month, the city and the county’s Department of Environmental Resources Management (DERM) widened testing sparked by the discovery of lead, barium and other toxic metals more than two years ago at the site of the city’s fire training facility at 3425 Jefferson St. in Coconut Grove.


Barium is a metal used in oil and gas industries and to make paint, bricks, ceramics, glass and rubber. It poses risks to the cardiovascular system, digestive tract and reproductive health.

Warning signs, fencing and rangers keep visitors away due to the hazardous chemicals found on the site, according to the article…

Montgomery County Pennsylvania – does not care where this chemical came from, how it caused one residents death, and the possibility that it could cause more unsuspecting citizens death.

Shameful neglect, disregard for environmental hazards, Pennsylvania, could be the next Miami, Florida disaster.

    Our government preaches environmental safety – then ignore their own rules in heavy metal deaths.
