What's a good resource for trace elements and heavy metal toxicity?

Be VERY careful: Most of the outfits offering "heavy metal testing" are scams, charging outrageous prices for"tests" intended to get you to buy their nutritional supplements, have your fillings removed, and generally suck you into a expensive racket. They exude warmth and this is the one thing that may make you feel better.
