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.
Ironically, Flintstones Vitamins are advertised as the “Pediatricians’ #1 Choice” for children’s vitamins.
However, the list of ingredients below are 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;
Bayer, the company that produces Flintstones Vitamins, suggests on their website that this cocktail of chemicals is a fair alternative for vegetables.
