The enlightenment came by way of Mike Adams, and his Forensic Food Lab! This lab does what the FDA
should be doing for the country!
Mike describes his discoveries in a series of videos posted on the site, as well as on YouTube. I strongly recommend everyone to watch these videos! As of this posting videos 1 and 2 are available now. The website is located at http://labs.naturalnews.com/Index.html.
The basic message of these new discoveries is that mother nature has a built-in mechanism to mitigate our ingestion/digestion of harmful heavy metals (lead, mercury, arsenic, etc.) and allow the absorption of healthy ones such as magnesium, zinc, etc. This protection is only available when we eat WHOLE FOODS! And I am not referring to the chain of supermarkets.
It seems that whole foods bind to the toxic metals and eliminate them in the feces. This is a concept that changed our way of thinking! Of course you still need to eat organic foods because of the pesticides, etc. It was also discovered that if you are eating contaminated fish (mercury) and you consume fruit or other fiber sources with the meal, that will mitigate your absorption of the mercury!
Again, I highly recommend you visit the site and view those video immediately! This is groundbreaking stuff!
To your health!
