Sulfate is not the same as other forms of sulfur

>No. Sulfate is OK. The sulfur in it (and in DMSA) isn't
interconvertible with the other kinds of sulfur in the body. MSM,
DMSO, glutathione, cysteine, cystine, and the sulfur in "sulfur
foods" are all interconvertible and all must be avoided if "sulfur"
is a problem as indicated by elevated plasma cysteine or by dietary
experiment. Any or all of these can be fed to people with low plasma
cysteine, or who do well on a high sulfur diet, but sulfate and epsom
salt baths won't help those who need more sulfur.
