Lead is a naturally occurring element in all soil. All plants contain some degree of lead. Root vegetables such as carrots, beets and potatoes contain higher levels of lead than non root vegetables.  Cacao is less likely to contain as much lead as root vegetables like potatoes because it is a fruit that grows on a tree.
