(NaturalNews) College sports jerseys, key chains, seat cushions and other memorabilia have been found to contain shockingly high levels of toxic heavy metals like lead, mercury, cadmium and arsenic.

The toxic products were sold by stores like Target, Walgreens and Wal-Mart, and they represent the University of Michigan, the University of Minnesota, Michigan State University and many other universities.

• Shockingly, a University of Michigan Deluxe Key Ring was found to contain over 1,200 ppm of mercury, a potent neurotoxin.

• A Michigan State University Seat Cushion was found to contain over 200 ppm cadmium and 170 ppm lead. Cadmium causes kidney damage and lead damages cognitive function.

• A University of Michigan jersey contained over 130 ppm lead in its ink print!

Laboratory tests conducted by...

Reading this, you may think these tests were conducted by myself at the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, because this is exactly the kind of thing we do.

But guess what? These tests were actually organized by the non-profit Ecology Center which published its findings on HealthyStuff.org.

I genuinely applaud the Ecology Center for achieving this stunning research. As a food science researcher, I know how incredibly expensive, time consuming and complex it is to conduct this sort of research. This project no doubt cost over $100,000 to carry out, and they are releasing the results for free in the public interest (just like we do).

This is commendable work, and I'm ecstatic to see that I'm not alone in running laboratory tests on everyday products and sharing the results with the world. (The Environmental Working Group also does fantastic work in this arena, by the way.) I strongly encourage Natural News readers to plug in to the Ecology Center and watch their work. In fact, if they are reading this, we'd like to do a feature story on your group and help bring more awareness to your amazing work. Great job!

Toxic college sports memorabilia

What these results reveal is that prominent universities are openly selling toxic products to the public. Apparently, these universities either are failing to test their own products before selling them, or they are testing the products and don't seem to care what they contain.

As a result, in my opinion these university sports products are contributing to chronic, degenerative disease in the American people and increasing their own customers' risks of cancer, neurological disorders, liver damage and kidney failure, among other serious health conditions. Even worse, some of these metals found in university products actually lower cognitive function and damage IQs, utterly contradicting the whole point of "higher education." Literally, these universities are releasing products that contribute to brain damage.

None of this surprises me, as I'm the scientist-activist who exposed Michigan State University selling highly toxic surplus laboratory equipment to the public, loaded with deadly mercury poison. In fact, Michigan State University sold me -- and readily shipped me -- enough mercury to poison the entire Los Angeles water supply. The boxes arrived via UPS, no questions asked!

So I know firsthand that universities routinely sell and deliver extremely toxic -- even deadly -- products directly to the public.

This is unacceptable!

I can't wait for these universities to roll out the same lame excuse being peddled by some vegan protein manufacturers in the aftermath of my own research exposing high levels of tungsten, lead and cadmium in rice protein products. Some companies claimed all those metals were "naturally occurring" and therefore not harmful.

All the scientists, biochemists and nutritionists laughed their heads off, of course, but that didn't stop these companies from continuing to sell their contaminated products to an unsuspecting public.

Demand safe consumer products from universities

Just as Natural News readers demand safe foods, dietary supplements and superfoods, it's equally important that you demand safe consumer products which are substantially free from heavy metals like mercury, arsenic, lead, cadmium and even tungsten.

The truth is finally beginning to emerge on all these heavy metals in your foods, superfoods and consumer products. With ICP-MS laboratories being set up by private entities like Natural News, more and more testing in the public interest is being routinely conducted. All companies selling toxic products will sooner or later be exposed.

So any manufacturer that wants to protect its reputation and operate with high integrity and high product safety needs to get with the program and start testing their products for heavy metals and other toxic chemicals.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is the founding editor of NaturalNews.com, the internet's No. 1 natural health news website, now reaching 7 million unique readers a month.

In late 2013, Adams launched the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, where he conducts atomic spectroscopy research into food contaminants using high-end ICP-MS instrumentation. With this research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products to low levels by July 1, 2015.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource now featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released ten popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
