Now, researchers say infants fed rice-based foods may have significantly higher “inorganic” arsenic concentrations in their urine than babies who never eat rice. The highest arsenic concentrations.

The highest arsenic concentrations were found in infants who frequently ate baby rice cereal, with levels more than three times that of babies who didn’t eat rice, the study reports. Babies who ate foods mixed with rice or rice-based snacks had arsenic levels nearly double those of non-rice eaters, according to the report published April 25 in the journal JAMA Pediatrics. “The.

This level of inorganic As in chow is higher than what is designated by the EPA as safe in drinking water (National Research Council, 1999, 2001), and, therefore, nullifies studies using chows to evaluate the influence of lower doses (i.e. 10À100 ppb) of arsenic (or other heavy metals).

  • Main Stream Media, CDC and FDA are such HYPOCRITES. Oh they are all
    outrage by heavy metal in baby food but have no problem with injecting
    heavy metal and other TOXINS straight into the bloodstreams of New Born
    Infants, Children, and Pregnant Woman. Injecting heavy metals into your body vs
    digesting heavy metal is different the circulation system is a close
    system there is no where for the metals to go but the brain,organs and
    tissue. 72 vaccines by the time your 18 will BIOL-ACCUMULATION. 26
    vaccines by the time your 7 years old will cause damage or even death.
    Digesting it there is a chance you will just shit it out. HYPOCRITES the Doctors is one of the worse when it comes to pushing force VACCINES. This show sucks they don’t care about your health just money for the Pharmaceutical companies.

  • The main thing I had to learn was to relax!! Sometimes baby won’t want to eat and that’s ok, as long as they are still having their milk they should be fine under 1. In the UK the nhs says food is fun until 1 year, let them play and squish and try it and so on, it’s good for them to learn (if frustrating)

  • no wonder kids getting dumber and dumber each year, mostly americans. just breastfeed your kids.. but make sure your producing enough milk, dont get them starved… true fact, sometimes you wont produce enough milk or not at all, it might leads babies starve to death

  • My 6 month old just had cod, leak and potatoes poached in almond milk. Not puréed mainly because she’s my 2nd and I don’t have time to make baby food and don’t buy things in packets generally (for any of us for environmental reasons). It is such a different experience than when I had my first where I put a lot more effort into making purées etc. she hasn’t had a problem feeding herself whole foods from the 6 month mark and still gets the odd pureeed type food when it’s something we’d also eat like yogurt or mashed potato.
