Infants in the family?  You need to be aware that many baby foods contain traces of lead, arsenic and other toxic chemicals.  Scientists tested 168 common baby foods in 61 brands.  Lead was in 94 percent, cadmium in 75 percent, arsenic in 73 percent and mercury in 32 percent.  All four were in 25 percent.  Fruit juices, rice-based products, carrots and sweet potatoes were among the highest-risk foods.  These contaminants can erode a child’s IQ.  Join the group urging the Food and Drug Administration to set maximum safe limits for these metals.               Source  –  The Week
