Infant Formula is Genetically Engineered
Did you know that virtually every infant formula on the market, both soy or milk-based, is genetically engineered? How is this not going to affect and alter the expression of the genes of infants consuming it?
All non-certified organic infant formulas tested that were made from soy contained genetically modified sources. If they contained milk they contained recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH). Even the government’s WIC program, which provides infant formula to mothers for free, uses only genetically modified soy in their formulas.
Note: the “organic” brands of infant formula listed are not problem free. They often use ingredients that are classified as harmful to the environment, e.g. sodium selenite, or even classified as pesticides, e.g. cupric sulfate.
