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

The capsule in the foreground is a notorious tryptophane capsule. It had the following pollutants: PCBs, mercury, ruthenium, thulium, strontium, praseodymium, aluminum, benzalkonium.

Most of the varieties of vitamin С 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.[32]

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

give the public the information they need to make informed choices.
