This Cancer-Causing Substance Was Just Found in Spinach Sold Nationwide

Quote:A team from the nonprofit organization As You Sow uncovered the issue over the course of a three-year testing period and has just released their findings. Their experts tested spinach sold by major companies including Target, Trader Joe's, Safeway, and others, and found cadmium present in dangerous levels in many spinach products.
While cadmium serves many useful purposes—from its role in batteries to plastic stabilization to the production of nuclear power—it's also a known health hazard when ingested by human beings and is listed as such under California Proposition 65. The California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) states that cadmium can, among other issues, cause "development toxicity" (hampering proper neurological development of children), "male reproductive toxicity," cancer, and other maladies as well.

OEHHA considers the "Maximum Allowable Dose Level" of orally ingested cadmium to be just 4.1 micrograms per day. However, according to the As You Sow report, spinach from many of the brands inspected contained more than double that amount in a single serving. And the worst offenders had more than 25 times that figure in a single serving–one sample yielded 107.1 micrograms of the heavy metal in the portion tested, a serving that may well have been sold to the public were it not acquired for testing.
