Heavy Metals Found in Chinese Chlorella – Spirulina

By Dr. Bob McCauley

aluminum-1Heavy metals are found in greater quantities in chlorella and spirulina coming from China.  Truth is, that all food have toxins and heavy metals in them to some degree.  The important thing to know is that they displace into the body when the food is cooked.  Therefore, eat all your foods raw – or at least as much as you can.

The amount of heavy metals found in chlorella is low to begin with.  From the article:

So just how much chlorella would you have to consume for aluminum to be a concern? Let’s do the math:  29 ppm could be viewed as 29mg/kg within a dosage of 3 grams. To reach the daily oral exposure limit for aluminum (as stated 50 mg/day), one would have to consume 1.5 kilograms of chlorella daily! A single 3 gram dose of chlorella would contain only 99 micrograms, more than 500 times below the 50 milligram exposure limit. Or put another way, an entire 300 tablet box of 200 mg/tab (equal to 60 milligrams of chlorella total) contains an entirety of less than 2 mg aluminum less than 25 times below the limit, if you ate the entire box in one day!  New Hope Article.

The levels allowed for drinking water by the EPA are unrealistically low, thanks to the arsenic“optics” of politics.  Politicians don’t want to be known as someone who “Rejected Clean Water Standards” from some environmental group so that want “dirty water.”  The truth is that 50ppb (parts per billion) is ridiculously low for drinking water.  Fill up your car with gas and breath in large amounts of arsenic, Trihalomethanes and a host of hydro-carbons.  Now that’s dangerous since you’re breathing it directly into the lungs and into your bloodstream.  What do we do?  You have two choices: 1) Run screaming hysterically in the streets, an unhinged, out-of-control idiot beyond help. 2) Follow my 7 Components Health Protocol and detoxify your body constantly which is what I do.

Truth is, aluminum is the most abundant metal on earth. Dietary aluminum is everywhere. We are constantly exposed. Our food comes in contact with aluminum from foil and cookware. We consume softdrinks, juice and beer from beverage cans made from 9299 percent aluminum. According to the World Health Organization, aluminum salts are widely used in water treatment as a coagulant to reduce organic matter. U.S. water contains an average of 160 micrograms per liter. The EPA has recommended a Secondary Maximum Contaminant Level (SMCL) of 50200 micrograms/per liter for aluminum in drinking water. This is double the amount of aluminum one would get from that daily 3 gram serving of chlorellaassuming one drinks ONLY 1 liter of water per day. New Hope Article.

Reality: The amount of aluminum found in chlorella is lower than found in many foods and drinking water, does not pose a health threat, and falls well below any regulatory agencies “maximum” allowable level (EPA, EFSA and USP).”   New Hope Article.

mercury (2)Mercury is another huge threat.  Found commonly in fish and throughout the environment.  Dental amalgam is also a primary culprit.  Brown Seaweed Extract and chlorella excellent at removing radiation and metals, including mercury.
