Why I won’t eat spirulina

spirulina is dangerous

I used to put spirulina powder, for its many vitamins, minerals and antioxidants; in my fruit smoothies, and I even made a raw vegan spirulina pie at one point, but I stopped consuming this algae because the taste was too strong.

I’m glad I stopped putting this dark green powder in my food because it’s been shown to be contaminated with toxins, heavy metals, bacteria, and can harm the liver (1).
