Is your protein powder toxic? According to a new study of 134 of the best-selling protein powders, 53 powders had elevated levels of lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, and BPA.
The Doctors welcome Jackie Bowen, the executive director of the Clean Label Project, to discuss the possible dangers found in some powders.
She says this can occur due to contaminated soils where the powder's ingredients are grown or from the container it comes in. She explains the study found that in over 50 percent of the powders tested positive for BPA -- which is an endocrine disruptor. She tells The Doctors that in products like baby bottles and baby formula packing, this chemical has been virtually removed, but it remains in some protein powder containers.
She says the study found that egg-based and whey-based products tended to be the cleaner in their testing.
