Dark Chocolate Brands Have High Levels of Cadmium and Lead?

Even though it is Harmful to Human Health resulting in Cognitive Impairment, Neurological Issues, Lower IQ, and Reproductive problems?

Cadmium and lead are heavy metals that can be present in the environment and can contaminate the soil and water that crops are grown in. Cocoa beans, which are used to make chocolate, can absorb these heavy metals from the soil and water.

While some companies take steps to monitor and minimize the levels of cadmium and lead in their products, others may not prioritize this issue or may not have the resources to ensure low levels of contamination. Additionally, the levels of cadmium and lead in cocoa beans can vary depending on the location where they were grown, which can make it challenging to ensure consistent levels of contamination across different products and brands.

Consumers can reduce their exposure to cadmium and lead by choosing brands of chocolate that have been tested for heavy metal contamination and have lower levels of these metals. Additionally, it’s important to eat a balanced and varied diet that includes a wide range of foods to reduce overall exposure to heavy metals and other contaminants.
