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.

Why is cupric sulfate – a known herbicide, fungicide and pesticide – being used in infant formula? And why is it displayed proudly on product labels as a presumably nutritious ingredient? Used to kill fungus, aquatic plants and roots of plants, parasitic infections in aquarium fish and snails, as well as algae and bacteria such as Escherichia coli, cupric sulfate hardly sounds fit for human consumption, much less for infants. Indeed, infants are all too often looked at as…
Breastfeeding is not simply a source of nutrients for the newborn. The mother, through her breast milk quality, programs critical immunological, metabolic and microbiological aspects of the baby’s physiology that will determine greatly his/her health status, even as an adult.
Currently, suboptimal breastfeeding is associated with over a million deaths each year and 10% of the global disease burden in children. So why is the the CDC aggressively fixated on vaccination instead of breastfeeding?
