When a family welcomes a new baby into their lives, the first and most important question they face is, “How will we feed our baby?” Naturally, the mother is the best source of nutrition for most babies. However, in those instances when breastfeeding isn’t an option for baby, parents will begin the search for the best source of nutrition for their precious one. This quest many times leads families to consider foreign companies as providers of their child’s first foods. Sadly, formulas produced in the United States often contain several ingredients that are problematic at best, and parents desire more natural, organic infant formulas. Some of the highest quality formulas of this kind originate in European nations, whose standards for “organics” are much higher than those of the United States. Purchasing directly from overseas leads to the problems of shipping cost and safety. When items are shipped from overseas, they can be subjected to x-ray, irradiation procedures, and the chance that customs will open the packages and tamper with the contents, risking contamination.
Why is irradiation a concern?
Currently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approves the use of certain types of radiation on food and food products. This practice is thought to make the food “safer” by extending its shelf life, and reducing the incidence of microbial and insect manifestations, along with their respective diseases. This sounds like a positive practice, until one considers the possible risks associated with the irradiation of food.
Radiation has several effects on food. It is known to eliminate some of the vitamins contained in food. It also produces byproducts that have been shown in laboratory studies to damage cells and DNA, and increase cancer causing cells. Understandably, parents are concerned about infant formula being exposed to these procedures, and their possibly detrimental health risks.
Unfortunately, the x-raying and irradiation of packages being shipped from overseas is a common practice, as is the opening of those packages by customs officials. Baby formulas being shipped by private individuals hoping to obtain optimal products are not exempt from this procedure. What is the solution for parents seeking radiation free infant formula?
