Stop Using Supplements


Stop using your vitamin supplements. They, too, are heavily

polluted. This is the saddest, most tragic part of your instructions.

I have found solvents, heavy metals and lanthanides in 90% or

more of the popular vitamin and mineral capsules and tablets I

test. These substances will do more harm in the long run than the

supplement can make up for in benefits.

Most of the varieties of vitamin C that I have tested are

polluted with thulium! Until all vitamins and minerals and other

food supplements have been analyzed for pollutants, after they

are encapsulated or tableted, they are not safe. We need more

disclosure on our products. No manufactured product is pure. We

can't expect that. But at least we should be able to tell what

impurities we are getting, and how much.

It is possible to do detailed analysis

of foods or products at a reasonable

price. Look at the bottle of

common table salt, sodium chloride,

that is used by beginning chemistry

students to do experiments. It must be

thoroughly analyzed for them because

minute impurities affect their results.

(Those minute impurities, like lead,

affect you, too.) Look at the label on

the bottle in the picture. Even after all

these tests, the cost of laboratory salt

is only $2.80 per pound.33

It is most important not to be

fooled by ingredient claims, like

“made from organically grown vegetables”. Sure that's great, but

the analysis I trust would be done on the final, cleaned, cooked

and packaged product on the shelf. The package is a major

unlisted ingredient.

Toxic solvents like decane, hexane, carbon tetrachloride and

benzene will get more flavor or fat or cholesterol out of things

than metabolizable grain alcohol. Of course, the extraction

process calls for washing out the solvent later. But it can't all be

washed out, and a detailed analysis on the final product would

is done on the cheaper grades, and my point is that the analysis is

cost effective enough that it should be done on our daily foods.

All supplements must be tested for purity by

yourself. If this cannot be done,

don't take them.

Polluted supplements do much more harm than good. Get

herbal teas.
