Beware of EXTREMELY Explosive Diarrhea!

A chemical used in rocket fuel and explosives has been found in 15 baby foods tested by the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, though no one appears too worried.

The US watchdog said the unnamed formulas contained traces of perchlorate, a salt derivative used in fireworks and rocket fuel and to treat thyroid gland disorders.

The US Environmental Working Group said a high level of the chemical could interfere with thyroid hormone production….

However, the study found the levels of perchlorate in the baby formula to be safe.

Milk-based formula were said to contain more perchlorate than their soy-based counterparts, and two brands that together had 87 percent of the country’s market share contained more than double the amount of perchlorate than their competitors.
