Don't worry: Herbalife is a big-big-money multilevel marketing scheme offering products that i think most healthtap physicians wouldn't recommend. From my reading, the allegations of lead in the products were brought by a single career criminal for whatever reason. If you want to be tested for lead poisoning, any physician can do it.
