"Did you know that an apple contains 3-5 mg of aluminum and trace amounts of lead, arsenic and mercury? Micro or trace minerals are essential for good health if they come from an organic or plant source. In contrast, if they come from an inorganic or metallic source, such as heavy metals, they are toxic. For example, iodine in an organic form is necessary for health. Non-organic or metallic iodine in the same amount can kill you."
"Organic trace minerals are not deposited in the body like inorganic forms of these elements.
Research shows that organic plant-derived trace minerals will actually replace the heavy metals deposited in the body. The heavy metals are then flushed from the body."edit on 8-1-2013 by JohnInFL because: pulled post out of quote
The second link simply says that there are other sources besides Tangy Tangerine which contain higher levels of these toxic metals.
They even cite the FDA, EPA and GlaxoSmithKline.
Ironic how Alex has slammed these very institutions for telling us that mercury was not only safe but good...
An organic compound is any member of a large class of gaseous, liquid, or solid chemical compounds whose molecules contain carbon.
