Recently there was a piece on ABC Good Morning America about a woman who felt her mercury levels were raised by taking Chinese herbs and other supplements. Without knowing levels before these items were taken, whether there was fish (like tuna) consumed or dental fillings (some do use mercury) , I cannot say what caused her levels to be high. I want to assure people who take herbs that I recommend, they are tested by the labs who produce them and again by a third party independent lab for heavy metals. Here are links to their websites so you can read the information yourself.
