About My Guest

My guest for this episode is Dr. Chris Shade.  Dr. Chris Shade, PhD is a globally recognized expert on mercury and liposomal delivery systems. He has lectured and trained doctors in the U.S. and internationally on the subject of mercury, heavy metals, and the human detoxification system. Dr. Shade developed the patented liquid chromatographic mercury speciation technology used at Quicksilver Scientific while conducting his PhD dissertation work with advisor Robert Hudson at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. This technology was used to create the Mercury Tri-Test used today.  Dr. Shade's current focus is on the development of cutting-edge, lipid-based delivery systems for nutraceuticals, such as liposomes and micro-emulsion systems to address the growing need of high quality, affordable detoxification solutions.  Dr. Shade has a diverse spectrum of interests and experiences, ranging from traditional Scottish stone masonry and geology to open-ocean sailing and marine chemistry.
