DEADLY Drugs Found in This “Healthy” Food (GROSS!)

 You try to “eat right.” 

But foods that are “good for you” and foods that are “safe” are two very different things. 

You see, even some of the healthiest foods are loaded with chemicals and toxins you’d never knowingly put into your body. 

In fact, there’s one seemingly healthy food that’s contaminated with some of the worst drugs and chemicals you can think of…  like pesticides, pharmaceutical drugs, and even cocaine. 

Fortunately, there is still one safe way to get this food. But you have to know where to find it.  

This particular food is packed with over 20 different vitamins and minerals. It’s one of the best food sources of iodine. And it’s an excellent source of protein and fat.  

Plus, it contains astaxanthin, one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants. 

By all accounts, you should be eating this food all the time! 

There’s just one problem… it can also be highly contaminated. 

If you guessed that I’m talking about shrimp, you’re absolutely right. 

A recent study examined shrimp from 15 different sites in 5 different rivers and found some alarming toxins in this popular seafood. 

All told, they found traces of 56 different chemicals pollutants and drugs. 


And the contaminant found in the highest amounts – and in 100% of the shrimp – was cocaine! 

Other drugs found included lidocaine, ketamine, Xanax, Valium, blood pressure medications, and antihistamines. 

Trace amounts of pesticides and microplastics were also found. 

And while it’s true that the shrimp from this study were all from rivers in England, other studies have found similarly alarming contaminants in shrimp from all over the world. 

In fact, 90% of the shrimp that we consume in the US is imported – yet only 2% of it gets inspected by government agencies.  

Similar to the shrimp tested in England, these imported shrimp have been found to be contaminated with banned chemicals, pesticides, antibiotics, and more. 

If you’re ready to swear off shrimp, I don’t blame you. 

But the only way to make sure that your shrimp contains all the good stuff (and less of the bad) is to know where it came from.  

Your best bet for the safest shrimp is to buy the kind that was wild caught right here in the USA.
