It seems as though there are constantly reports of birth defects, organ failure, cancer, and other negative health conditions that are associated with GMO consumption. This means we should limit the use of GMO in baby products. Babies are sensitive to the foods they consumer and we know that the pesticides in the mother’s milk can be damaging to the baby. There are three companies listed below that represent more than 90% of baby formula sales in the US that will not consider removing GMO from their products.
Health – Damaging GMOs in Baby Formula
With every negative thing we hear about GMOs before it has been proven to be safe, why would be feed it to our children? There are companies such as Mead Johnson Nutrition and Nestle USA that own water rights. If you are feeding your baby formula from the three following companies, you are probably feeding the GMO corn, sugar beets, and soy. They are already familiar with these products as they have probably tried them already.
This is one of the most common brands that is given out at hospitals and is made by Abbot Laboratories. The company will sell you a can of baby food for more than $100 that is full of GMO poisons. I encourage you to contact the company and question their motives. Why would they believe it is okay to include GMOs. Better yet, you should boycott the company. Shareholders are supposed to vote on whether the company is able to continue using GMO in baby formula. Here is a brain buster: Abott Laboratories is one of the top pharmaceutical companies.
This is another formula that is often given out as free samples to new mothers. Mead Johnson Nutrition makes it. Their website has been quoted to say, “Enfamil, scientifically designed to meet the nutritional needs of newborns and infants.” The following Mead Johnson formulas are known to have GMO toxins:
Enfamil with Iron
Enfamil with low Iron
Enfamil Lacto Free
Enfamil Next Step (both soy and milk varieties)
3. Gerber Good Start
The GMO-riddled formula made by Nestlé USA is perhaps the most questionable since the company has knowingly tried to ‘patent’ water and make it a commodity though it is all part of life itself on this planet. Do we really want to trust a company who wants privatize water with feeding our children health foods? The company went GMO free in South Africa, according to Corporate Action Network, but continues to sell American families the contaminated GMO formula we feed our babies every day.
Nestlé USA and Mead Johnson Nutrition have dismissed calls to remove genetically-modified organisms (GMO) from their infant formula products in the US – citing the approved use of GMOs by several national and global regulatory bodies.
You can boycott all these companies and start making your own home-made, natural baby formula without toxic chemicals and pesticides and nasty GMOs. The assistant director of the FDA, Nick Duy, says we shouldn’t make our own baby formula, but why isn’t he ousting these companies for using questionable (at best) and health-damaging GMOs?
