Kale is often praised for extensive supplies of calcium, magnesium, potassium, vitamin K and other healthy phytochemicals and antioxidants. But this super-food hides a terrible secret: Dangerous amounts of heavy metals.
In the recently conducted survey, molecular biologist Ernie Hubbard discovered that kale, along with cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower accumulates in itself heavy metals such as thallium and cesium. Also in this vegetable are common and nickel, lead, cadmium, aluminum and arsenic, and of the pollution are not immune nor the organic or the standard products.
Who is the culprit for this? The soil.
“If the poison is in the country, leafy vegetables will take it,” said Hubbard for the magazine “Craftmanship”.
This will shock many, because kale conquered the culinary world in the past years. Since 2007 the US Department of Agriculture on the list were 954 registered farms, and that number grew to 2012 in 2500. This vegetable has become a real hit – chopped, fried, cooked steam grinded in healthy drinks, baked like chips etc.
Thallium is a poison often used for the extermination of rats. It is tasteless and odorless and almost colorless. Those who have entered in their body, wasn’t in sufficient quantity to poison them, but they felt exhaustion, heart arrhythmia, nausea, indigestion, neurological problems and hair loss, writes portal Delish.com.
Although toxins are everywhere in our industrial world, it is no exaggeration if you are concerned about these things.
“We know that small amounts of heavy metals combine,” said David Kvid, a leading scientist in the laboratory “Doctors Data”, Ph.D. at nutritional biochemistry.
“If you take a little thallium and add a little sinker, then add a bit of cadmium in your body, you get 1 + 1 + 1 = five or six, not three. In other words, the heavy metals are even more harmful to the body when combined, “said Kvid.
“These things are concentrated in the human body,” says Kvid adding that at some point the patient will surely feel the bad consequences.
