Protein Drinks Show Contamination

The Washington Post reported today that Consumer Reports tested protein drinks and found that all 15 showed at least one sample containing arsenic, cadmium, or mercury. For three of the drinks, you would exceed recommended maximum limits if you drank three of them in a day.
Heavy metal belongs in your earphones, not your diet. Fortunately, there's an easy solution: don't drink these things. They're expensive, and almost no Americans need more protein in their diets, anyway.

  1. Thank you for posting this. It's just unbelieveable what's in our food supply. I've had my Shaklee Protein or Meal Shake almost Every Day of my Life. I get so tired of hearing people say that not getting sick is just because of heredity.
