"Plant Derived Minerals" and "Colloidal Minerals" are Toxic!

Because I am a health consultant, I constantly get email (and sometimes even phone) offers to sell naturopathic products on my website (which I do not do, although I sometimes endorse certain products or vendors in my health guides). One came in recently that seemed like it might be a good product, so I requested more information about it. It claimed to have a larger collection of minerals than usual multi-mineral supplements, so I wanted to see what they were.

The product literature, from a company called Youngevity headed by a Dr. Wallach (a veterinarian), was cheerful, brightly-colored, and convincing that this was the ideal mineral supplement, packaged in drinks or little easy-to-use powder packets. Beyond Tangy Tangerine, American Longevity Cheri-mins, and American Longevity Osteo fx. Then I started to read the list of minerals: calcium, chloride (well, not a mineral, but I'll overlook it), magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, sulfur, aluminum hydroxide..

What? Why would you include aluminum hydroxide in a mineral supplement mix? Aluminum was removed from most over-the-counter products years ago during the first Alzheimer's scare. But then, as I continued to read the list (in VERY small print, I might add), my hair began to stand on edge...

Antimony, Arsenic...

ARSENIC??? They added the neurotoxin arsenic to a mineral drink? Why?

At that point, I scanned the list for other neurotoxins. Sure enough, the list included cadmium, mercury and lead. And fluoride, to boot. I was dumbfounded. Why on earth would a company purposely include the most horrible neurotoxins that we have been attempting to remove from our environments for years? I asked the person who had sent me the information how on earth these neurotoxins had gotten into the products he sold, and I got no reply. So I did a little bit of research, and found the answer.

"Plant-derived" = From a MINE!

These so-called "plant-derived" minerals are apparently from the TJ Clark Mine in Utah. The reason they are called "plant-derived" is that the mine has ancient plant matter that did not undergo complete fossilization, and they use the soft, crumbly material from this mine for their products. It is sold by several companies, among them TJ Clark and Youngevity, and sold under several other company names, with the "plant-derived minerals" or "colloidal mineral" designation.

Here's the problem, and perhaps they are so clueless they don't realize it: during sedimentation - when plant matter begins to become rock - it absorbs and fixes minerals that are not necessarily good for you - among them, the heavy metal neurotoxins mercury, cadmium, arsenic, and lead, plus the Alzheimer's-promoting combination of aluminum and fluorides.

Whatever the reason, they should not be selling health products that have known neurotoxins in them. It is just plain wrong.  Make no mistake - it does not matter whether these neurotoxic heavy metals are from ancient plant matter or from industrial pollution. They are absorbed the same way when you eat them and do the same damage to nerve tissue and neurons in your brain and spinal cord. Please avoid these products. If you have taken them already, have blood test and hair tests done to see if you have been contaminated. If you believe you have associated health problems, sue your distributor.

Please take a high-quality multivitamin/multi-mineral supplement, such as Life Extension Foundation Two-Per-Day Tablets. This will give you the minerals you need, without jeopardizing your health.
