Some call it denial. For you though, it is obviously ignorance.
Here's your study, mercury brain:
"ALA has been shown to affect the release
of glutathione into bile secretions. In animal studies,
increasing amounts of glutathione in bile has
been shown to dramatically increase the release
of inorganic mercury. ALA given intravenously
to rats at doses of 37.5-300 μM/kg was shown to
increase inorganic mercury release in bile by
1,200-4,000 percent immediately after mercury
exposure.67 Levels of released inorganic mercury
remained at a 300-700 percent elevation, even
three hours after dosing with ALA. If mercury was
injected 24 hours prior to the administration of
ALA, the increase in release of inorganic mercury
was substantially less, but was still elevated 140-
330 percent. A lower dose of ALA (37.5 μM/kg)
was more effective than higher doses at increasing
the biliary elimination of methylmercury.
There was disconcerting evidence from
this study, however, that ALA may also alter the
tissue distribution of mercury and other heavy
Although levels of inorganic mercury and
methylmercury in the kidney dropped significantly,
levels of inorganic mercury also increased
significantly in the brain, lung, heart, and liver tissue.
Methylmercury levels had also increased in
the brain, intestine and muscle of the rats given
ALA. The same phenomenon occurred in rats exposed
to cadmium and given the same doses of
ALA. Levels of cadmium in the liver dropped
(where cadmium is most frequently stored) but
increased in the kidney and muscle. The same was
true in rats given copper and ALA; all tissues examined
had increased levels of copper, except for
the liver (where copper usually accumulates)
where levels had dropped.67 In all cases the pattern
was the same; the tissues that concentrated
the metal (blood, spleen, and kidneys in the case
of methylmercury) had reduced concentrations,
while other tissues appeared to have a greater concentration."

As for your second question, you were obviously proven ignorant. read my response again:
-You obviously got excited because you read some study about the half life of ALA. And of course, without doing ANY THINKING OR REASONING on your part, you blindly assumed cutler was wrong and you were right. What you DON'T know is that ALA is quickly converted by the body to DHLA. It is the DHLA that does the chelating and has the half life of 3 hours.
As for your third question, I already pointed out to you that an administration of dmsa once every six or 7 hours is not considered "infrequent" because the blood still has dmsa in it. It is simply not the ideal frequency, and redistribution will happen although less than with an infrequent dose of say, once per day. Dosing at the half life is a very well known practice in pharmocology and you seem to thinkt that you are on to something by bashing anyone who draws the same conclusions that andy cutler does.
Yep, feel that lump in your throat? Swallow it down. You are proven wrong. Have fun pretending to know anything!
