Metal Found In Top Baby Foods


According to UPI a new study shows that two-thirds of baby food samples tested by Consumer Reports was found to have troubling ingredients. This includes: cadmium, inorganic arsenic or lead content. Consumer Reports tested 50 baby foods sold in stores and “found ‘worrisome’ levels of heavy metals in 68 percent of those tested.” Brands tested include Gerber and Beech-Nut. The report also said that every baby food item tested had a significant level of at least one heavy metal, some of which could cause health risks if babies consumed as little as one serving daily. Whether the food was branded as organic or not, the study showed that foods with rice and sweet potatoes stood out as having high metal levels.
