What do you all think of The risk of lead contamination in bone broth diets? Is it a risk even from our grass-fed beef bones?

It's possible. However, you'd have to ask yourself a few questions while reading this:
Am I better with, or without broth for my health?
Is the lead contamination serious enough that it's best to stop having broth?
What about game bones? Organic chicken is a joke compared to true, pastured chickens or game animals.
At some point, in order to be mostly free of environmental toxins, you might have to move to a Pacific island, or at least in a small town with our own land. Since we all CHOOSE to live in the 1st World, we will have to live with its toxins, that we can't do much about, apart from writing to our Congressman.

The frustrating thing about this publication --- which only did one sample for each type of broth --- is that it's impossible to know whether it applies to other types of chicken or animals without actually doing the tests. They have a plausible mechanism, but for all we know, they got a bad chicken, or maybe it's true for all chicken in the UK. I wrote a bit more on my blog.
