Week 32’s winning entry is from Contessa Mendoza (the_barefoot_contessa14) for her wonderful, high-social-impact post. The post clearly shows both the product (Human HeartGreens™) and the Prop 65 warning and in the process, focuses on one of the great ironies of Prop65: the treatment of natural versus processed food. How can a heart-healthy superfood, like HeartGreens™, that actually meets FDA Organic requirements contain lead? Superfoods are made from fruits and vegetables grown in soil. As lead is in the earth’s crust, almost all soil contains lead, and trace amounts of lead are present in the produce grown in soil. California for this reason did exempt fresh, frozen, and canned produce from the cancer/birth defect warning, but not items made from that produce. The warning is thus required when the healthy fruits and vegetables are processed into a powdered drink like HeartGreens™. Only in Crazy California!

Heart greens for a stronger heart. Lead is strong, so is that why they added it? To make your heart strong? I think they are confused because according to the State of California this is actually Cancer Causing. Even the healthiest super foods are dangerous. @californiapolicy #prop65Contest #superfoods #cancersucks #cancercausing #californiapolicy #onlyincalifornia #californiaprops #eating #eatinggreen #plantbased #plantbasedsupplements #skinhealth #estheticianlove #collagenpeptides #beautyandcollagen #collagenandelastin #greenheart #healthyrecipes #getfit #getfitordietrying #lunchbox #lunch #subway #healthy #fitnessmotivation #fitnesshealth #disney #energy #healthyenergydrink #namaste
