On the other hand, according to a report released by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) earlier this year at least 5 percent of kids ingested more than the recommended daily intake level of lead, which is 6 milligrams. Oddly, the presence of lead was more common in baby foods than in the same foods marketed for adults. Numerous samples tested by FDA are already either lead-free (according to the limits of detection in the analyses used) or have low lead content.
Children are consuming more lead than is healthy, a new study by an environmental watchdog warns. "The FDA estimates it's all from the soil, but that wouldn't explain why it was more commonly found in baby food, baby grape juice and baby apple juice".
EDF analyzed more than 12,000 test results from the 2003-2013 FDA national composite food sample data (the Total Diet Study). Specifically, we examined potential IQ loss and the percentage of samples with high lead concentrations.
The FDA has set limits for lead in the form of maximum parts per billion (ppb) for certain foods.
Using a Federal Drug Administration (FDA) database of food samples, EDF reported some pretty worrying numbers, most remarkably in fruit juice samples intended for children.
The Environmental Defense Fund report was ultimately directed at the food industry and FDA in the hopes of getting limits and standards updated.
CDC also made it clear that IQ disorder, poor academic performance and inability to pay attention have been proven to be associated with low levels of lead in the blood.
For simplicity, the EDF sorted the baby foods into eight categories: root vegetables; non-root vegetables; fruits including juices; cereal; infant formula; prepared meals; crackers and cookies; and desserts. But the concern is how much a child may consume over time.
Contamination also could happen during processing from lead leaching from older brass, bronze, plastic or coated food handling equipment that contains lead; or from deteriorated lead paint in the building. Those standards suggest that children get no more than six micrograms of lead per day, based on children having no more than 10 micrograms of lead per deciliter of blood. Bu the FDA says lead can come from our environment, getting absorbed by food crops planted in contaminated soil.
Researchers had data from 2,164 baby food samples, which included 57 different types. The EDF recommends that the FDA and manufacturers step up their game to reduce lead in products, and parents should consult with their pediatricians to figure out strategies to limit exposure.
Teething biscuits and Arrowroot cookies were also found to contain traces of lead, with 64% of the cookie samples testing positive.
The FDA measures lead limits in parts per billion (ppb), which reportedly represents the number of units of a given contaminant per billion units of total mass.
