Consumer Group claims many dark chocolate varieties have lead and cadmium
Edited on Fri Mar-25-16 04:40 PM by Divine Discontent
If you have a sweet tooth, you may have read studies talking about the health benefits associated with eating moderate amounts of chocolate. But our research has found a potential health risk in popular chocolate products thats been flying under the radar some chocolate contains toxic metals like lead and cadmium.

As You Sow has conducted independent laboratory testing of 50 chocolate products for lead and cadmium. We found that 35 of the chocolate products contain lead and/or cadmium. Many of those chocolates had levels of lead and/or cadmium above the safe harbor threshold of Californias Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65). Based on these results, we have filed notices with 18 manufacturers, including Trader Joes, Hersheys, Green and Blacks, Lindt, Whole Foods, Kroger, Godiva, Sees Candies, Mars, Theo Chocolate, Equal Exchange, Ghirardelli, Earth Circle Organics, and more, for failing to provide the legally required warning to consumers that the products contain cadmium or lead, or both.

No level of lead is safe for children.

2. BTW, I got here by clicking on a headline about the Rolling Stones and
when I clicked on the headline about the Rolling Stones in LBN, I got that error message we always got here before you did some magic and then some. It said:

An error occurred during processing.

check to see if the action was completed. It is not necessary to report

3. hello my dear O.N.E!
That title error with the Rolling Stones post was my error. I meant to put a different story (this one about lead) and it saves that original headline in the forum list.

Hope you're doing well. How about Bernie winning yet again? Sure is a lot of wins for Sen Sanders! Even if he's not the chosen one for the Dems, he truly has caused SoS Clinton some self-awareness about her positions, and I hope it sticks with her.
