Long-term health effects of pet food containing heavy metals: Are they safe?


Quote
Since 2010, the FDA has gotten more than 9,000 pet food complaints ranging from sickness to death.

Just last year, the non-profit “Clean Label Project” released an unprecedented study.

It tested roughly 1,100 pet foods for heavy metals, BPA, pesticides and other toxins linked to cancer.

They found contaminants in nearly every brand.

Most notably, dangerous heavy metals like arsenic, lead, cadmium and mercury — which are linked to cancer, respiratory and neurological disorders.

Scientist Dr. Sean Callan, was part of those tests.

"Thorns may hurt you, men desert you, sunlight turn to fog; but you're never friendless ever, if you have a dog."
