Report Finds Gerber Baby Food Filled With GMOs

Don’t feed this to your baby

What kind of person, even as the head of a major food retailer, would want to feed developing children pesticides and questionable genetically modified ingredients? That’s a question to consider when you find out that one of Gerber’s popular baby food items has been found to be full of insecticidal GMOs.

Do these executives not realize they are feeding these to our children or do they just not care?

Lab tests have confirmed that Gerber’s Lil’ Crunchies snacks are full of Roundup Ready, insecticidal GMO ingredients. Even the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has issued a policy statement recommending that children’s exposure to pesticides be reduced. How can this company put them in a snack that little ones are meant to munch on?

“Children encounter pesticides daily and have unique susceptibilities to their potential toxicity. Epidemiologic evidence demonstrates associations between early life exposure to pesticides and pediatric cancers, decreased cognitive function, and behavioral problems.” ~ AAP

A package of Gerber Graduates Lil’ Crunchies Veggie Dip Baked Whole Grain Corn Snack were sent to an independent lab and 100% of the corn in the product was found to be derived from GMOs, according to the report. This herbicide-resistant, Roundup Ready corn has been shown to cause liver and kidney problems, among other adverse health issues. It is also known to be toxic to human cells, damaging to male reproductive organs, detrimental to healthy gut flora, and can add to the fragility of a developing fetus.

And unfortunately, mothers who can’t afford the good stuff are given this low-quality formula. Mothers and babies who receive federally-funded WIC assistance (Women, Infants and Children Program) are usually provided with formula comprised of GMO ingredients, including GMO corn and GMO soy. Mothers who desire organic baby formula for their developing children are denied it. Are the poor relegated to carcinogenic, developmentally-altering, genetically modified food, and nothing else?

Does Gerber’s VP of nutrition really think this is a great thing to put in food meant for consumption by small children?

Gerber has also been known to put GMOs in baby formula – so if they don’t get you at infancy now, they are targeting your toddler. It’s time to Boycott this horrible company, for good. It is clear they don’t make safe products for your family. They just make profits utilizing GM poison.

“During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act” – George Orwell

MIRAGE

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a persistent one. So get a few laughs and do the best you can. Don't have an ideal to work for. That's like riding towards the mirage of a lake.
