Please help my granddaughter 16 months old get off of Almond/Coconut Milk. Inspite of my calls to the CAS and appeals to her parents, she has been consuming these toxic products for at least 4 months at a rate of 6 - 7 bottles per day.
These products both warn that they are not to be used as an infant formula and not to be given to children under the age of 5. She is not getting the essential nutrients required for her growth and development from this milk. In fact it has been scientifically proven that long term consumption of this milk can have serious health complications including but not limited to nutritional rickets and autoimmune thyroid diseases. Furthermore, Carrageenan a key ingredient in this milk has been found to cause serious health problems also. The Joint FAO/WHO expert committee on food additives states that, "based on the information available, it is inadvisable to use carrageenan or processed eucheuma seaweed in infant formulas”. There is also evidence from studies performed that it may cause ulcerations in the gastro-intestinal tract and gastro-intestinal cancer. Medical officials would not advise this developing infants;
Please help me get my granddaughter on to whole milk which provides all of the nutritional requirements and fatty acids for brain development and help bring a stop to the use of cancer and tumour promoting ingredients in all of our foods. Carraggeenan is also used as a "Aircraft De-Icer"!
