what’s it called when a cow spies on you?

Your Herbs and Spices Might Contain Arsenic, Cadmium, and Lead: consumer report…“CR tested 126 products from McCormick, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, and other popular brands. Almost a third had heavy metal levels high enough to raise health concerns.”“Roughly one-third of the tested products, 40 in total, had high enough levels of arsenic, lead, and cadmium combined, on average, to pose a health concern for children when regularly consumed in typical serving sizes. Most raised concern for adults, too.”… this is in the US… some of it may be naturally occurring as well. Did you know apples have arsenic in them? It’s natural but most of it is contained in the core. You would have to eat so many apples…you would get a tummy ache before the arsenic affected you.

When people say “they” are poisoning us, this is what we’re talking about. They say “it’s safe”, might be if this one spice is the only one being used or consumed as recommended, but if you use more than recommended, or use other items that have “safe levels” of hazardous/unsafe ingredients, you may have just poisoned yourself without even knowing it. Think about it…you brush your teeth with store bought toothpaste, wash your hair with store bought shampoo/conditioner, wash your clothes with store bought detergent, eat breakfast, lunch and dinner with ingredients that possibly have poisonous ingredients…how many toxins have you been exposed to? Probably more than the “recommended safe level “. And I get it, poisons and toxins are everywhere and in almost everything! It’s best to be informed and do the best we can. Go as natural/homemade as possible.

Knowing is half the battle, right?
