WARNING! You Need to Avoid Chocolate!!
Well... Not all chocolate. Just most of it!
Did you know that most chocolates contain toxic heavy metals like lead and cadmium?
I know! I know! This is crazy! But... It's true.
In fact, the European Union has just released new guidelines that require companies in the United Kingdom to disclose the heavy metal levels in their chocolates. This is great because it helps to protect consumers in the UK from heavy metal poisoning.
Heavy metal poisoning can lead to serious health issues like
- Abdominal pain.
- Central nervous system dysfunction.
- Heart problems.
But the crazy thing is..
There are no laws regarding disclosure of heavy metal contents of chocolate in the United States!
This means all of us every day people are just left in the dark, because big corporate chocolate company's are getting away with poison and there is nothing we can do about it.
However we can choose to empower ourselves and become more aware as consumers. This means learning more about the products we use and the foods we eat on a daily basis.
