95% Of Baby Foods Contain Dangerous Toxic Metals

Posted by Ed 13 mths ago
Toxic metals which can damage a baby’s brain development have been found in nearly every baby food tested, according to a new study published Thursday.

According to testing done by Healthy Babies Better Futures, a staggering 95 percent of the 168 baby foods from major manufacturers in the U.S. contained lead.

The disturbing report also found 73 percent contained arsenic, 75 percent contained cadmium, and 32 percent contained mercury. One-fourth of those foods for infants contained all four dangerous, heavy metals.

One in five baby foods tested had over 10 times the 1-ppb limit of lead endorsed by public health advocates, although experts agree that no level of lead is safe.

The results echoed a previous study by the Food and Drug Administration that found one or more of the same metals in 33 of 39 types of baby food tested.
