Consumer Reports: Lead and cadmium in chocolate

This has been going on for a while but now more data on which products are high.

Cadmium is thought to come from the soil where the plants grow. Lead from where the beans are dried.

Safe levels are still controversial. But mere detection in measureable amounts seems a concern.

You take them in order to protect him from eating toxic heavy metals.


I am so, so, so, so, so, so screwed.
