Copper is often cited as an essential mineral. Copper-containing preparations are frequently employed in multi-mineral and multi-vitamin supplements. However, in the present communication, we contend that the so-called 'biological need for copper' is a gratuitous and unfounded commonplace medical belief that is responsible (1) for the current lack of interest in researching the real biological effects of copper - which, in fact, are detrimental to health - and, likely, (2) for the slow and unwitting poisoning of people that consume such ill-advised supplements, placing them at risk for insidious neurological and sclerotizing diseases like Alzheimer's disease or atherosclerosis.
