New Study says 85% of kids juices and snacks have high levels of lead

13 Jul

My friend sent me this article about a recent study that was done on brand name juices and snacks mostly given to children. The findings are disturbing. 85% of these tested had high levels of lead. This included Gerber baby foods and organic products such as Earth’s Best and Trader Joes. Someone commented on this post that you should just buy fresh and make it yourself, but the problem is the water. It is contaminating the fruits and veggies with lead. We could have high levels in our fruits and veggies in our refrigerator and drinking water. All I know is this is very disturbing!
