- A new investigation tested 168 baby food products for arsenic, lead, cadmium and mercury, all of which are toxic metals that can damage brain development in infants.
- Nearly all of the foods tested contained at least one of the metals, and 1 in 4 contained all four metals.
- The authors of the report recommended five steps for finding alternative baby foods with less toxins.....
Why the FDA does not permit advertising OTC supplements that can detoxify or chelate heavy metals:
"1. What is chelation?
Chelation involves the use of certain chemicals to remove heavy metals from the body. In medicine, chelation has been used for the treatment of metal poisoning, among other conditions. All FDA-approved chelation therapy products require a prescription because they can only be used safely under the supervision of a healthcare practitioner."
