Former Pakistan opener, Imran Nazir, has recently shared a chilling story about how he was poisoned at the peak of his career.

Nazir, who played for Pakistan in 8 Tests and 79 ODIs between 1999 and 2012, had first disclosed about the illness last May, but, has now revealed more details about the incident.

"When I recently got treated, including MRI and all, a statement was issued that I was given poison - Mercury. It is a slow poison; it reaches your joint and damages them. For 8-10 years, all my joints were treated. All my joints had gotten damaged and for this reason, I suffered for almost 6-7 years. But even then, I prayed to God, 'Please don't make me bedridden'. And thankfully, that never happened," Nazir said on the Nadir Ali podcast.

"I used to walk around and all when people used to ask 'You're looking fine'. I doubted a lot of people but when and what did I eat, I cannot figure out. Because the poison doesn't react instantly. It kills you for years. I still never wished bad for whoever did this. The person saving is better than the one who wants to kill," he added.

According to Nazir, he was poisoned with Mercury, which is a slow poison that damages joints. For 8-10 years, all his joints were treated, and in the process, he exhausted all his life's savings, which is estimated to be PKR 12-15 crore.

The right-hand batsman said that during his tough time, former Pakistan captain, Shahid Afridi, stood beside him like a rock and helped him a lot.

"I have spent my entire life's saving on my treatment. In the end, there was a final treatment, in which Shahid Afridi helped me a lot. He helped me in my time of need. I had nothing left when I met Shahid bhai. Within a day, my doctor received the money in his account. He said 'No matter how much money is needed, my brother should get well'. He spent around 40-50 lakh. I was happy that he had told his manager 'Don't even ask about him. Keep sending how much money he needs'. The credit even goes to my doctor that he never tried to cheat me. He stuck to the amount that was required," added the former Pakistan opener.

Despite the suffering he endured, Nazir said that he never wished bad for whoever did this to him. He said that the person saving him was better than the one who wanted to kill him.

The 41-year-old has not played cricket in any form since 2018, where he represented the Kerala Knights in the T10 League alongside players such as Chris Gayle, Eoin Morgan, and Jonny Bairstow.

Shahid Afridi bare dil ka aadmi hai

That`s chilling.
Seems to be a work of a professional assassin.
But it`s also possible he might have drank or eaten somewhere unhygienic.

There are at least two potential pathways for mercury to enter human body in ordinary course of life.
1. Some vaccines and other medicines use Thiomersal as a preservative. Hence, if the medicine/vaccine is badly prepared, it may have excess mercury and lead to poisoning.
2. Amalgam is sometimes used in dentistry for fillings. That may lead to poisoning if used improperly.

Besides these, eating seafood from contaminated waters, especially industrial waste polluted waters can lead to mercury poisoning called Minamata disease.

Also non-standard ayurvedic medicine prepared from trees/ herbs containing high mercury. My maternal uncle, who was a successful business owner, met his unfortunate end through this. Trying to treat a life-long, but non life threatening asthma by some north Indian hakim.

What trees/herbs contain high mercury? Mercury is toxic and is not a normal part of biological systems. It only enters organisms through pollution as in aquatic animals.

The groundwater is contaminated. Everyone in Pakistan that drinks it is slowly being poisoned.

Some herbs are unintentionally grown in contaminated soil or processed with equipment that introduces metal into the product. Even tiny amounts of lead, mercury, and arsenic can harm the body. Claims that they can be "detoxified" are not supported by research.

Metal Toxicity from Ayurvedic Medications

Toxic metals in ayurvedic preparations from a public health lead poisoning cluster investigation

How do they get past the drug administration (the equivalent of FDA)? Don't they have to submit test data, analysis, therapeutics etc.?
🤷‍♂️

Till now, I thought in most cases, the key words were Hakeems, Quacks & un-certified concoctions. But after some internet search, it appears that sometimes certified ones can be dangerous too, if not prescribed correctly.
