Hey guys, have you heard the latest news? Well, apparently, it was recently uncovered that the top selling children’s vitamin brand could be doing much more harm than it is doing good. The Flintstones Vitamins, which have been the #1 brand in the US for years, has recently been exposed for containing GMOs and cancer-causing toxins such as Aspartame. Yes, we know – this is really shocking! And the worst thing about it is that these Flintstones Vitamins are advertised as the “Pediatricians’ #1 Choice” for children’s vitamins.
Note: the list of ingredients below is far from healthy or safe for children.
- Cupric Oxide;
- Coal tar artificial coloring agents (FD&C Blue #2, Red #40, Yellow #6);
- Zinc Oxide;
- Ferrous Fumarate;
- Hydrogenated Oil (Soybean);
- GMO Corn starch;
A spokesman for Bayer, the company that produces Flintstones Vitamins, says that we shouldn’t be worried and that this cocktail of chemicals is a fair alternative for vegetables.
About the Ingredients:
Here’s what you need to know – aspartame is a synthetic combination of the amino acids aspartic acid and l-phenylalanine, and is known to convert into highly toxic methanol and formaldehyde in the body. Aspartame has been linked to over 40 adverse health effects in the biomedical literature, and has been shown to exhibit both neurotoxicity and carcinogenicity. And Cupric Oxide and many of the other substances listed are also toxic chemicals that are recognized as harmful by multiple international rating agencies.
To be honest with you, these vitamins are obviously not a viable replacement for vegetables, and actually feeding children vegetables in the first place would cancel out the need for supplements like this. We really hope you find this article helpful and don’t forget to share it with your friends and family. Thank You.
