A Genisoy Chunky Peanut Butter Fudge bar was submitted to this laboratory out of concern for levels of heavy metals in soy. Soy is known to have high levels of aluminum and cadmium. The found that this particular soy protein bar contained 8.5 ppb of mercury. The form of mercury in this bar is most likely methyl mercury the kind found in tuna and other fish. Mercury at any dose is unsafe according to mercury expert Dr. Boyd Haley of University of Kentucky and others. According to one expert contacted 8.5 ppb of mercury per Genisoy bar is approximately .5 microgram of mercury per bar.
We know that Dr. Haley speaks only the truth about mercury.
Now we have been told that the corn syrup that may be used in the manufacture of these products may also be laced with mercury.
Is there a cover-up?
Why is BigSoy silent?
Is this mercury somehow magically safer?
