The Mercury News published an article on Thursday outlining a new study that reveals that 80% of baby food tests positive for arsenic.
The study, conducted by The Clean Label Project, tested a wide variety of baby foods, formulas, and toddler products. Of the about 530 tested, 65% tested positive for arsenic, 36% for lead, 58% for cadmium, and 10% for acrylamide.
These chemicals can lead to problems in fine motor-skill development in infants, as well as cognition.
