Not a whole lot of people know about this including my husband who was unware of this until i had him research online. There are natural ways of getting your daily protein supplements so if there are people out there heavily relying on protient shakes then start thinking about the posible consequences.

If it's not natural but synthesized, then there's a good chance that it contains unhealthy substances.

Traces of heavy metals occur naturally everywhere in the soil, so anything that grows or eats what grows from it is going to contain some. That goes for organic foods as well, including what you grow in your own back yard. As far as I can see, protein drinks are all made from natural products. I don't know if processing concentrates the metals somewhat compared to the source material, or if the materials are sourced from places with a greater natural concentration of metals. It would be interesting to see a comparison of the heavy metals content between the protein powders and an equivalent amount of protein from organic foods.
