    I would say, that it is strange the a private group in CA is spreading this. Of course there are naturally occurring levels of lead in plants and clay… I would like to see the reported numbers on the tested products and see what they are referring to. Bentonite Clay, for example, contains lead, but because of it’s negative electrical charge, it does not release lead into the body. Instead, it draws it out and eliminates it! Same thing with Pacific Kelp, Algae, and Spirulina. And bee pollen. What’s so amazing to me is that the State of CA passed all the immunization laws and is mandating that children be immunized. Those ingredients in vaccinations are WAY more dangerous than naturally occurring lead in raw plant matter. Watch the video in this article… shows how the affect of mercury is way worse on nerves than lead is. And those shots are loaded with it! I’m not worried about whole-food supplements from a company that goes to great lengths to ensure purity in all of their products… sounds like a whole lot of propaganda from a CA lawyer to me.

      Thank you so much for this level-headed response to what is obviously a sensationalized lawsuit. Interesting how companies promoting natural products seems to be the biggest targets for this frivolity. I will share your video link widely. Again, many thanks!

    Makes sense. Even the slightest check on Young Living’s suppliers (this includes Doterra! Ex: wolfberries oil) shows they get a good amount from China. China is always in the news for high amounts of lead.

      Not true. None of the YL suppliers are Chinese, and none of their stuff comes from China, that I can see. Please provide link (s) to prove what you’re saying or retract your statement.

      Are you saying that doTerra is a supplier to Young Living? Because that is just not true.

    Bentonite clay is a detoxifying agent for lead and heavy metals. The lead naturally occurring in it is not bioavailable. Shouldn’t a lead watchdog know this kind of thing? Very strange level of ignorance for a group of activists.

      Hi Nancy,

      We have researched this thoroughly and have found no scientific study that confirms that the lead in the clay is not bio-available. All types of lead in all sources of lead are bio-available to some degree.

      This “non-bio-availability” appears to be a myth perpetuated by the industry that sells the clay.

      The primary quote (from “Cooper 2009”) that has often been quoted in support of this apparent myth also cannot be sourced from a specific study or document. If you have a source of the “Cooper 2009” quote, please let us know.

      We have found many documents referencing actual “Cooper 2009” studies, but none have the quote (or reference any statements) about bio-availability of lead in bentonite clay.

    Please note the dates on this claim for Young living are from 20+ years ago.. There should have not been a reason for this to be brought up so far down the road. I think people posting articles in 2015 and 2016 aught to have something better as evidence to make a believable claim. Though there may still be issues with lead in products or what have you, a current lawsuit or study would be better.

      That’s the date the relevant legislation was in effect, not the date of the lawsuit. The lawsuit is current. Lawsuits always refer to a violation of a law that was enacted sometime in the past. 🙂

    June 5th 2015 is the date of the source document folks. Please read all links before attempting to discredit things.
