Baby formula

Is the baby formula you are using safe? You might want to take another look. But looking at the label is not a guarantee of safety.

Sayer Ji of GreenMedInfo recently said this:  “The USDA organic label is supposed to protect the consumer against GMOs and avoidable chemical exposures, but the sobering fact is that USDA-certified infant formula manufacturers are not only being allowed to use a pesticide in their formulas, but are advertising it as a ‘healthy’ mineral to unsuspecting consumers.”

He goes on to say, “Surprisingly, all that regulators do is ensure that those ingredients are there in the amounts deemed necessary, and that some basic quality control measures are followed during the manufacturing process.”

A recent review summarized the U.S. rules as follows:

“Infant formula, like no other food, is regulated by its own law, the Infant Formula Act of 1980 as amended in 1986. The act sets lower limits on 29 nutrients (so-called “table nutrients” because they appear in table form. U.S. Code of Federal Regulations 21 CFR 107.100). . . . Manufacturers are required to follow “good manufacturing practice,” but no requirement for sterility is specified. . . . Powdered formula is not guaranteed, nor required to be free of pathogenic organism” (Baker, 2002).

If our babies are not protected in their critical first months, what health issues will they face as they mature?  What are you doing to protect your health and that of your children and grandchildren?

It’s questions like these that confirm in my mind how important it is to buy products from companies that have full disclosure of their ingredients. I am proud to be associated with Young Living Essential Oils. It is a company I can trust and recommend without reservation.
