Too Much Salt and Sugar Added to Toddler Food

The assumption most people have is that food designed for babies and toddlers has a high nutritional standard.   U.S. ID-100309415CDC and Prevention analyzed sodium and sugar levels in 1,074 infant and toddler foods and drinks. They discovered that 72% of toddler dinners were high in sodium, with more than 210 milligrams per single serving (as stated by Dr. Mary Cogswell of the CDC in Atlanta and her colleagues said in Monday’s issue of the journal Pediatrics).  Another 32 per cent of toddler dinners and most toddler cereal bars, infant or toddler snacks, desserts and juices had one or more added sugars, defined as more than 35 per cent of calories per portion coming from sugar.  For more information click here to read the article as reported by the CBC.

    There is always some sort of inrtdusy defender on threads about GMOs. the difference between GMOs modified for Bt and spraying the plants with Bt is vast. Spray will wash off, it will degrade in weather. the Bt gene inserted in the plant cannot be washed off, it does not degrade. In fact in some studies, these BT producing genes were transfered to gut bacteria.Human cells are damaged by Bt toxin in the lab, there is no doubt about that- probably the same lock & key’ you describe here. The same way it damages the stomach cells of insects.We want decisions made by science. Not the Multinational corporations who have a mandate to make a profit, not the government agencies that are composed of inrtdusy insiders.All independent tests show organ damage, increases in cancer and infertility in animals fed GMOs. Farmers have increased production, decreases in illness and increases in herd fertility when they switch to NON GMO grains for pigs, chickens and cattle.You will no longer be able to hide behind the FDA and the USDA. There are excellent scientific reasons GMOs are banned in the EU. We are the only industrialized modern nation that does not require labeling of GMOs, and it is coming here sooner or later. Prepare for that.
