 It's bad enough that companies like Similac package, market and distribute formula products for babies that are filled with chemicals such as arsenic (from rice, especially brown) and harmful GMO-derived sugars, where even hospitals pass them off as not only safe for infant consumption but as "Closer Than Ever" to breast milk and as a "Complete Nutrition" alternative.
