ALERT: 95% Of Baby Food In U.S. Have Toxic Metals


A disturbing new report reveals that 95 percent of tested baby foods in the U.S. contain toxic metals.

“Even in the trace amounts found in food, these contaminants can alter the developing brain and erode a child’s IQ,” reads a report, that was commissioned by Healthy Babies Bright Futures, an alliance of nonprofit organizations. “The impacts add up with each meal or snack a baby eats.”

A majority of baby food contains toxic heavy metals that can affect brain development, a disturbing new investigation has found.

Tests of 168 baby foods from 61 brands spanning big names to niche ones found heavy metals in 95 percent of them, according to the report published Thursday.

One in four baby foods contained all four metals assessed by the testing lab, which included arsenic, lead, cadmium, and mercury. More

Researchers tested 168 baby foods made by companies in the U.S. The tests found that 95% of them contained lead, 73% had arsenic, 75% had cadmium and 32% had mercury, CNN reported

Here are the worst offenders:
  • Rice cereal, often introduced as a baby’s first food, is the top source of arsenic in a baby’s diet. Other rice-based snacks, like rice puffs, also contain high levels.
  • Teething biscuits and rice rusks are listed as a high-risk food in the report.
  • Many parents choose to avoid fruit juice in their baby’s diet, as many popular types contain high amounts of sugar. Fruit juice can also contain toxic metals, according to the report.
  • Carrots and sweet potatoes are great sources of many nutrients. However, root vegetables retain more toxic metals naturally.

Be assured of one thing. Manufacturers of these foods have their own scientific test laboratories and will know well what they are peddling.

I’d like to see a separate research study that isn’t funded by an advocacy group. Also, I’d like to see how these results compare with other countries. Is it a problem just in America or is it a global problem?
