Wilson's Disease is a rare genetic disorder caused by the inability of the body to properly dispose of copper from the bloodstream. In normal people, the liver filters excess copper from the body and disposes of it in bile into the digestive tract. However, in patients with Wilson's, excess copper accumulates in the body's organs, particularly the liver, eventually poisoning them.
Chelation therapy will remove excess copper from the body, but patients cannot be cured and must thereafter avoid foods that are rich in copper, such as liver, shellfish and nuts.
