Rocket fuel's got baby formula soaring off the shelves... or does it?


You may have heard, but if you haven't you're in for a scary doozy. Apparently, rocket fuel has been found in baby formula. Yes, baby formula.

According to the Atlanta (AP), Traces of a chemical used in rocket fuel were found in samples of powdered baby formula, and could exceed what's considered a safe dose for adults..." However the formula would need to be mixed with water that has also been contaminated.

The government knew about the studies being done, but it wasn't until the EWG (Environmental Working Group) made a stink about it that it is finally being looked at seriously.

Certain cities across the country have contaminated water supplies. So if these people use their tap to mix with their baby's formula, well, there are going to be a lot of babies with some possible thyroid problems which can, "impact fetal and infant brain development", especially if the formula uses milk as a base.


Which brands, you ask? Only the CDC (Center for Disese Control)knows. And they're not telling!

All I can say is, thank goodness I had sense enough, and the ability to breastfeed.

Well look at the baby formula scandal in China- terrible. Babies dead from poisoned formula that the company knew about.

Death penalty for some managers-

As they say: breast is best.

Oh my goodness! Really?! Insanity. I just don't understand people today.
Yes, as they say breast is best. I feel horrible for those who can't, and those who won't well, use em or lose em.
