Natural Foods Possess Remarkable Ability to Selectively Bind with Toxic Heavy Metals, Says New Research from Natural News Forensic Food Lab

Protection against dietary mercury furnished by natural foods that are consumed during fishy meals

TUCSON, Ariz., Jan. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Natural News Forensic Food Lab (http://labs.naturalnews.com) has announced a breakthrough food science discovery that measures the ability of natural foods to bind with and "capture" toxic heavy metals such as cadmium, arsenic, mercury, lead, copper and aluminum.

The discovery was dubbed the Metals Capturing Capacity by its discoverer Mike Adams, and it measures the number of micrograms of each toxic element (heavy metal) which can be bound or "captured" by one gram of the food substance being tested. A video explaining the discovery is available now at YouTube:

MCC laboratory test results for many foods and superfoods are published now at:

Until scientifically documented by Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger"), the binding ability of foods has only been understood and described in vague terms with statements like, "Cilantro absorbs heavy metals" or "Zeolites can help detox heavy metals." Adams' research is now able to fully test these claims and document the actual micrograms per gram of toxic elements which are bound or "captured" by foods, superfoods, herbs and dietary substances. Adams has already documented that cilantro's reputation is vastly overstated: it actually performs very poorly in terms of metals affinity and binding.

Mike Adams' pioneering research now reveals that nearly all foods containing natural insoluble fibers are able to easily bind with dietary mercury. This even includes, surprisingly, Doritos (http://labs.naturalnews.com/Doritos_45_heavy_metals_lab_tests_at_Natural_News_Labs.html), as Doritos are based on GMO corn which naturally contains fibers. Virtually all grains, grasses, fruits and vegetables naturally bind with mercury with very high efficiency. (Adams recommends eating a whole, fresh organic apple with at least one meal each day.)

The practical application of this newfound knowledge is that people who are concerned about eating mercury in fish can now help defend themselves against that dietary mercury by making sure they consume fresh fruit, bread, high-fiber vegetables or even a fiber supplement with that same meal. By doing so, they will vastly reduce their body's absorption of the mercury from the fish (greater than 99% in some cases).

Superfood algae such as chlorella and spirulina were found to demonstrate high selective affinity for certain toxic elements. Many algae products perform extremely well in this context.
