15 different protein drinks were tested for four heavy metals
1. Arsenic - tasty!
2. Cadmium - yummy!
3. Lead - scrumptious!
4. Mercury - delish!
Tests results found metal present in ALL 15 drinks...yikes.
Can I get some protein with my metal?
Of particular concern were three of the top-selling products because consuming three servings a day could result in exposure to arsenic, cadmium or lead that exceed proposed limits for contaminants:
1. EAS Myoplex (Arsenic, Cadmium)
2. Muscle Milk - Chocolate (Cadmium, Lead)
3. Muscle Milk - Vanilla Creme (Lead)
True you could argue that most individuals are not drinking these shakes three times per day.
But why the heck would you knowingly put something hazardous into your body?
Who cares if the amount you consume is within the 'limits for contaminants' set by the FDA or whoever for a protein shake...that's nasty and terribly ironic as these shakes are supposedly for - health.
