Summary: Baby foods are linked to Autism. The manufacturers knew that the products were unsafe but chose money over mankind.


Many of us parents of children with Autism(ASD) have asked this question many times, “What is the cause of my child’s autism?”  For some, we may now have the answer. 

A recent Congressional Report titled “Baby Foods Are Tainted with Dangerous Levels of Arsenic, Lead, Cadmium, and Mercury” showed that 7 major baby food companies sold food to parents for consumption by babies that were known to have dangerous metals in them. 

What Baby Food Companies are Included?
The list includes the major baby food companies that most of us trusted to provide safe and nutritious food for our babies.

2. Earth’s Best Organic (Hain Celestial Group)
3. Gerber

5. Parent’s Choice (Walmart)

The Dangers of Exposure to these Toxic Metals

The report concluded: “Exposure to toxic heavy metals causes 
permanent decreases in IQ, diminished future economic productivity, and increased risk 
of future criminal and antisocial behavior in children. Toxic heavy metals endanger 
infant neurological development and long-term brain function.” Multiple studies have linked these toxic metals ingested by babies to Autism. The rate children with Autism has skyrocketed.
