Certain foods cause more damage than repair! Beware!
According to Natural News, both Garden of Life and Sunwarrior joined an unprecedented agreement to achieve specific heavy metal limits in their protein products by July 1, 2015. Boku Superfood immediately signed on to the agreement after it was first announced.
Mike Adams, editor of NaturalNews.com and the lead researcher who originally identified tungsten in brown rice protein products, explains that the majority of brown rice proteins tested in the Forensic Food Lab showed levels of tungsten, an industrial heavy metal that’s just now getting noticed in the food industry.
The agreement is the first ever voluntary heavy metals limit ever achieved in the natural products industry. “This marks a milestone for food safety and protections for consumers,” said Adams, who led the agreement discussions.
The agreement limits heavy metals in protein products to:
• Lead limit: 250 ppb
• Tungsten limit: 50 ppb
• Cadmium limit: 1000 ppb
• Mercury limit: 50 ppb
Many protein products currently sold in the USA vastly exceed these limits. Adams is now urging all rice protein manufacturers across the United States to join the agreement already signed onto by Garden of Life and Sunwarrior. VEGA, Jarrow Formulas, Nutribiotic, Living Fuel, Nutribody Protein, Ultimate Superfood and Healthforce Warrior Food are specifically invited to join the industry accord in the interests of public trust and food safety.

A scientific study conducted at the nonprofit Consumer Wellness Center has found that popular breakfast cereals such as Corn Flakes, Kix, Uncle Sam, Raisin Bran and Honey Bunches of Oats are relatively free of toxic heavy metals. These cereal products are made by companies like Kellogg’s, General Mills, Post and Nature’s Path. Conducted by food scientist and lab director Mike Adams, the study was based on atomic spectroscopy analysis using ICP-MS instrumentation to test for aluminum, mercury, arsenic, lead and cadmium. The announcement is posted at ConsumerWellness.org.
The study is part of a joint effort between the Consumer Wellness Center and Natural News to openly publish heavy metals test results for popular foods, groceries, herbs and dietary supplements.
“These findings indicate that popular cereals tested demonstrate remarkably low levels of toxic heavy metals in their composition,” explained lead scientist Mike Adams. “The concentration of metals detected in these cereals was consistently lower than what we are finding in herbs, superfoods or even many types of fresh produce.”
