Natural News has confirmed, via three different laboratories, the presence of significant levels of the heavy metals tungsten, lead and cadmium in Garden of Life "beyond organic" raw protein products. This has been confirmed across multiple lots of Garden of Life Original, Vanilla and Chocolate Cacao and Vanilla Spiced Chai. Tungsten has also been found and confirmed in Garden of Life "Raw Fit" products.
Of all the products we have tested at the Consumer Wellness Center laboratories, I have never seen any product with higher levels of tungsten, lead and cadmium. Garden of Life products we tested showed the highest levels of heavy metals that we've ever seen across all foods including junk foods, dairy products and fast food.

In one lot we tested (E2694A), we found concentrations so high that:
• Lead intake from a single serving exceeds California Prop 65 limits for dietary supplements by 2,700%.
• Cadmium intake from a single serving exceeds California Prop 65 limits for dietary supplements by over 1,000%.
• Tungsten concentrations were so high that they exceeded the lead concentration by nearly 2,000%.

Keep in mind that lab results may differ slightly from lab to lab, and product composition may also vary slightly from one container to the next. So just to be sure of these findings, I had Garden of Life products tested at three different laboratories including a university laboratory which confirmed my findings.
Here are some of the products in which we have confirmed significant concentrations of tungsten, lead and cadmium:
