- The Hidden Dangers of Heavy Metals in Baby Food
When it comes to your baby’s health, every little detail matters. That’s why it’s so concerning to learn that heavy metals like lead, cadmium, and arsenic are finding their way into baby food products.
No safe level of exposure: According to experts, there is no safe level of exposure to heavy metals, especially for children.
Deleterious effects: Heavy metals like lead, cadmium, and arsenic can have harmful effects on the developing infant’s mind, brain, cardiovascular system, and immune system.
Lower IQ: Exposure to heavy metals can lower IQ and is linked to behavior problems and ADHD.
Increased risk of cancer: Heavy metal exposure is also associated with an increased risk of skin and bladder cancer.
Ubiquitous exposure: Heavy metals are ubiquitous, meaning that every baby is likely exposed to them daily.
The presence of toxic heavy metals like lead and cadmium in certain baby foods has become a growing concern for parents as these substances can cause irreversible harm to a child’s brain development and overall health. Caregivers need to be vigilant and educate themselves on the baby foods to avoid to minimize their child’s exposure to these dangerous metals.
- What baby foods to avoid: Report revealed
The recent report from the House Subcommittee on Economic and Consumer Policy on heavy metals in baby food has revealed some truly disturbing findings. Seven leading baby food manufacturers were asked to provide internal data on testing for heavy metals in the ingredients they use and the products they sell, and the results were shocking.
Excessive Amounts of Heavy Metals
The report found that many baby foods contain excessive amounts of heavy metals, such as inorganic arsenic, lead, and cadmium. These toxic heavy metals are harmful to human health, especially to infants and young children, who are more vulnerable to their effects due to their small size and developing bodies.
Internal Standards for Heavy Metals
Even more concerning is that companies regularly sell products that contain ingredients that exceed their own internal standards for heavy metals. Many companies do not conduct routine testing on their finished products, and even when they do, they frequently permit products with significant levels of heavy metals to be released to the market.
Organic Products Are Not Safe
Organic products were found to be as likely to have high levels of heavy metals as conventional products. This is particularly alarming as many parents turn to organic products thinking they are safer and healthier for their babies.
Dangerous Levels of Toxic Metals
The levels of heavy metals found in some of the baby food products were far above what experts consider safe. For example, the FDA set a limit in August 2020 for inorganic arsenic in infant rice cereal at 100 parts per billion. Yet, using this limit as a reference, a quarter of finished products tested by Nurture contained more than this level.
Lead Standards for Baby Foods
There is no lead standard for baby foods, but the FDA standard for bottled water is 5 parts per billion lead. However, 20 percent of Nurture’s finished products contained more than 10 parts per billion lead, and many ingredients used by Beech-Nut, Hain, and Gerber contained more than 20 parts per billion lead. This is particularly concerning as lead is a neurotoxin that can cause developmental delays, learning difficulties, and behavioral problems in children.
Lack of Regulation and Testing Standards
One of the most alarming aspects of the report is the lack of regulation and testing standards for baby food products. The report notes that the FDA is almost completely absent on this issue, and baby food makers have set testing standards far above what recommended standards are, and even then, they often violate their own standards.
Four companies responded to the subcommittee’s request for data: Nurture, Beech-Nut Nutrition Company, Hain Celestial Group, and Gerber. The report says that Walmart, Sprout, and Campbell Soup Company did not respond, and there are concerns that they may have something to hide.
It’s Time for Action
The report underscores the urgent need for action to be taken to protect babies’ health. Heavy metals in baby food are not a new problem, and it’s time for the FDA and companies to act, so we can really start to protect babies’ health. The time for studying this is over, it’s now time to act before it’s too late. Parents deserve to know what’s in the food they’re feeding their babies and expect that these products meet safety standards.
Client success stories
Before starting TRS, I didn’t even realize that my son’s issues with emotional regulation, clinginess and even tantrums were toxin related. After an elevated lead test and starting TRS, we realized that lead as well as other toxins and metals had been affecting him and his behaviors dramatically improved. The out of control tantrums with head banging faded and never returned once we began using TRS. So so grateful to have found TRS!

When I say this stuff is changing our lives, I really mean it y’all! A month in and I’m totally weaned off of my anti anxiety and antidepressant medications! I also haven’t needed sleeping medication that I’ve depended on for over 5 years.
My sweet daughter’s eczema is healing through TRS this week! SUCH AMAZING GAINS this week!! Clear improvements from spraying orally, and not even a full week of me spraying it directly on her face.

I have high blood pressure and sugar diabetes, I have been taking TRS religiously for 2 1/2 weeks. I have always been on blood pressure pills and I’m normally 90/200 while taking them. Today 80/132! And my sugar diabetes is usually in the range from 162 to 200 while taking Metformin, I’m truly mind blown that it is at 100 today! Even after I had cereal, and sugarless cookies today.
I think my sugar diabetes just keeps getting better and better! I can’t get over this!

3. The solution to baby food toxicity — TRS
TRS can help remove heavy metals from the body by using the process of chelation, which involves binding the heavy metals to a substance that can then be excreted from the body. In the case of TRS, the clinoptilolite zeolite has a strong affinity for heavy metals, which are typically positively charged, due to the zeolite’s high negative charge. The zeolite acts like a tiny magnet, attracting and trapping the heavy metals within its cage-like structure.
Once the heavy metals are trapped by the zeolite, they become inert and are no longer able to cause harm to the body. The zeolites used in TRS are unique in that they are designed to be in the nanometer range and encased in water molecule clusters, which allows for a sufficient amount of surface area to capture toxins due to their 0.9-nanometer pore size. This means that zeolites are able to trap heavy metals and other toxins effectively without causing damage to the body’s organs or requiring the kidneys to filter them out.
In addition, TRS is considered a passive chelator, which means that it does not force toxins into circulation and does not cause redistribution. This is important because some chelation methods can cause heavy metals to be redistributed throughout the body, potentially causing further harm. TRS is able to gently and effectively remove heavy metals from the body without causing any harm.
For babies, heavy metal exposure can be especially dangerous as their bodies are still developing and are more vulnerable to the harmful effects of toxins. TRS can help remove heavy metals from a baby’s body, allowing their organs and systems to function properly and reducing the risk of long-term health effects.
4. Tips to Reduce Your Child’s Heavy Metal Intake: Advice from Food Safety Experts and Nutritionists
Here’s some advice for parents from Consumer Reports’ food safety experts and nutritionists to help minimize your child’s heavy metal intake while maintaining a healthy diet:
- Limit your child’s intake of high-risk baby foods like rice, sweet potatoes, apple juice, and grape juice, as they often contain worrisome levels of arsenic.
- Cut back on fruit juice, which can contain high levels of lead and arsenic, and opt for whole fruit instead.
- Consider making your own baby food to eliminate the risk of heavy metals from additives and potentially reduce heavy metals in rice by cooking it like pasta.
- Minimize baby food snacks like puffs and teething biscuits, which are often highly processed and high in heavy metals.
- Vary the foods you feed your child to get an array of nutrients and avoid overconsumption of heavy metals. Talk to your pediatrician about ensuring your child is getting enough vitamins and minerals, as many baby foods are enriched or fortified with certain nutrients.
Beware of certain baby foods – the Baby Food Report warns that some popular brands have unsafe levels of heavy metals, like lead and arsenic. Protect your little one’s health by knowing which baby foods to avoid and consider making your own.
In conclusion, the presence of heavy metals in baby food is a serious concern that parents should not take lightly. The damage caused by these toxic substances can be detrimental to a child’s health and development. However, by following the recommendations of food safety experts and nutritionists, such as limiting high-risk baby foods and considering making your own, you can significantly reduce your child’s exposure to heavy metals. Additionally, using a trusted detoxification product like TRS can help eliminate any existing toxicity in your child’s body.
