ParaoxonaseA key chemical in Porphyria
Copyright (C) 1995-2003, JVV
Paraoxonase, a member of the A-oxonzse family, breaks down
acetylcholinesterase inhibitors before they bind to the cholinestarases,
thus protecting people from harm by low dose organophosphate pesticides
exposure. Yet it is estimated that worldwide, 220,000 people are killed
each year from such exposures.
Not all people have the same levels of these oxonases. Those who's bodies produce less of this are at higher risk in environments where pesticides are used.
