Could You Be Eating Mercury And Not Even Know It?

Peanut butter - gone. Green onions - out of here. Now MSNBC is reporting (via Reuters) this evening that a new study out indicates that mercury may be present in corn syrup. Many food companies are disputing the findings, but the information found in the journal of Environmental Health can't be taken lightly.

" 'We went and looked at supermarket samples where high fructose corn syrup was the first or second ingredient on the label,' he said. These 55 different foods included barbecue sauce, jam, yogurt and chocolate syrup. 'We found about one out of three had mercury above the detection limit,' Wallinga said."

Please check out the following link for more information on this study. Is there anything we can eat anymore?
