shedding light on the effects of retained gadolinium from Contrast MRI
One of the original websites for Gadolinium information
We started the Lighthouse Project to shed light on the effects of retained Gadolinium from Gadolinium-Based Contrast Agents (GBCAs) used for contrast-enhanced MRIs and MRAs. This website is part of our effort to increase awareness of the effects of Gadolinium Toxicity.

"Gadolinium is one of the 17 rare-earth elements, and is part of the “lanthanide” series of metals. Most rare-earth metals are toxic to humans. Gadolinium has paramagnetic properties – that means that when it moves through a magnetic field (such as an MRI), its temperature increases slightly. This makes it useful to enhance the image quality in MRI scans.
Gadolinium is highly toxic to humans. While gadolinium has no known biological properties, and is not found naturally in the human body, its molecules are similar in size and shape to calcium, which has many biological functions. Because free gadolinium ions mimic calcium in the body, it interferes with the effects of calcium-dependent processes. Gadolinium can cause a host of toxic effects, including inflammation, oxidative stress, neurological damage, and damage to our genes, or DNA. The damage to cells from gadolinium is exacerbated by exposure to the magnetic fields of MRI scanners1."
