I was reading in Consumer Reports magazine about heavy metals found in protein drinks. The metals that were tested were: arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury. Two of the protein drinks that were found to have high levels were Muscle Milk and EAS Myoplex.

Muscle Milk Chocolate: 5.6 Cadium (Max is 5) 13.5 Lead (Max is 10)
Muscle Milk Vanilla Creme: 12.2 Lead
EAS Myoplex Original Dark Chocolate Shake (liquid): 16.9 Arsenic (Max is 15) 5.1 Cadium
