 Food: Half of all popular snacks and drinks contain mercury 
by What Doctors Don't Tell You - 1/31/2009
High levels of mercury have been found in popular drinks, breads, cereals, breakfast bars, yogurts and soups. Around half of all popular brands contain the dangerous chemical in the form of HFCS (high-fructose corn syrup), the artificial sweetener.

It's reckoned the average American eats 12 teaspoons a day of HFCS from snack foods and drinks, and consumption among teenagers may be around 80 per cent above average levels.

America’s Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy (IATP) is calling for an immediate ban of HFCS to stop mercury contamination of food. "Mercury is toxic in all its forms," says IATP’s David Wallinga. "Given how much high-fructose corn syrup is consumed by children, it could be a significant additional source of mercury never before considered."
