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
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.
