No, companies don't "put" heavy metals into their product. That would cost money to do that and reduce their profits. What is true is that the plants that they use naturally absorb minerals and metals and that gets included in the end product.

Because some companies put certain toxic metals in their powders like lead, cadmium, mercury, arsenic etc. You can't be serious. Who talks like this? Are you suggesting that toxins are deliberately added? You better have evidence of this criminal activity. What an immensely trashy article.
