Germanium: The typical daily dietary intake of
germanium is 0.4 to 1.5 mg. Foods high in germanium include wheat
bran, vegetables, and leguminous seeds. Germanium as an organic
complex has been touted, but not proved, as having anticancer
properties in humans. Some organic forms of germanium are less toxic
than inorganic forms. Inorganic germanium toxicity results in kidney
damage. Some individuals consuming high amounts of organic germanium
supplements contaminated with inorganic germanium stores have died
from kidney failure.
