Today Dr. Steve Tower, who was featured in The Bleeding Edge documentary, made a public release of his research into neurologic cobaltism resulting from some medical devices like hip implants, knee implants, etc. Many patients with implants which contain cobalt-chromium alloys are misdiagnosed with dementia, Parkinson’s Disease, or other disorders due to the similar symptoms caused by cobalt toxicity, like:
- Extreme Fatigue
- Mood Disorders
- Sleep Disorders
- Imbalance & Muscle Weakness
- Numbness in Extremeties
- Tinnitus or Deafness
- Generalized Pain
You may download his research at the following link and share it with your healthcare providers if you think you are experiencing neurological symptoms from a cobalt-chromium (Co-Cr) implant.

You can also watch Dr. Tower’s public testimony at the FDA hearing on cobalt-chromium alloys in implantable medical devices, which was held in November 2020. We are still awaiting the immunology panel’s recommendations to the FDA as a result of the hearing.
