Our children are the most vulnerable among us and we have a right to expect a certain level of safety around the products for them. That's why it's so horrifying that a recent study
found 95% of all baby foods on the market in the US contain lead, arsenic, mercury or cadmium, which are extremely toxic materials. Sign the petition to ask the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to figure out what's going on and crack down on toxins in baby food!
Not only do most baby foods contain these heavy metals, one in four contain ALL FOUR! Things that happen during early childhood development have been shown to have lifelong effects on health outcomes. Which is why we should be doing everything we can to be sure young children are protected from harm, not only because it's the right thing to do but because it will yield a healthier, happier and more productive adult population in the long run.
Each of these heavy metals has been linked to extremely bad health outcomes and it's a very big deal that they are in baby food.
Truthfully, this study is absolutely astounding and there should be more public outcry. Please join us and some members of Congress in calling on the FDA to get the toxins out of the baby food!
When you buy food for your baby, you expect it has gone through certain regulatory bodies that ensure it's safety. Now we know those safeguards are not doing their job and we must demand better for our children!
