The FDA Is Recalling Turmeric From THESE Brands Due To Lead Contamination

The FDA is recalling more than 377,000 pounds of commercial turmeric and turmeric-based products Across America. Why? Because of dangerous lead contamination.



Cleveland.com reports that the affected turmeric comes from at least three sources – Walmart, Amazon.com and Target.

The Health impacts and Dangers of Lead Poisoning:

Despite the FDA's best efforts, it has yet to determine a ‘safe’ level of lead exposure. 

Such a level likely doesn’t exist and is very hard to determine  as your liver doesn’t know how to handle lead leading to an accumulation in your body over time.

Eventually, this leads to a number of problems including:
  •     Developmental delay
  •     Weight loss
  •     Fatigue
  •     Abdominal pain
  •     High blood pressure
  •     Constipation
  •     Joint pain
  •     Headaches
  •     Mood disorders
  •     Miscarriage
  •     Reduced sperm count

What To Do


If you’ve been using any of the turmeric products mentioned above, the FDA instructs you to contact them to find out.
 
You should then of course, switch over to an organic non-lead contaminated turmeric product.

Your body will thank you anyway if you begin a heavy metal detox. Here’s a quick detox drink recipe:

You’ll need:


  •     Two lemons
  •     A quarter of a cucumber
  •     One and a half apples
  •     Two kale leaves
  •     Two celery stalks
  •     Two spinach leaves

Always use organic ingredients to avoid introducing even more toxins into your body.

Place all the ingredients, in order, in your juicer. Juice until smooth, then pour and drink. Repeat this multiple times daily for at least 3-4 days.
