Does your Glucosamine supplement contain 26 times more lead than it should?

I was startled when I read this blurb about Glucosamine supplements containing up to 26 times more lead than they should and other similar products containing only 71.5% of the active ingredient listed on their labels.

New Review:  Joint Supplements with Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM  
Glucosamine, chondroitin, and MSM may help treat or relieve pain of arthritis caused by worn cartilage in joints -- a condition known as osteoarthritis. However, among the supplements ConsumerLab.comselected and tested for our new report, we discovered that a supplement from a nationally recognized company was contaminated with one of the highest levels of lead ConsumerLab.com has ever found -- 26 times as much lead as CL permits! A second national brand also exceeded the lead limit. Our tests showed one supplement to contain only 71.5% of its listed amount of chondroitin and we found important warning statements missing from some labels.

The FDA doesn't regulate supplements. WE have to do our own research and due diligence before choosing a brand of supplement to take. We are responsible for protecting our bodies. Most companies don't care about us personally, they just want the profits.

I am honestly not trying to sell you anything, I only want to protect you from ingesting crap!
