A.G. Schneiderman Asks Major Retailers To Halt Sales Of Certain Herbal Supplements As DNA Tests Fail To Detect Plant Materials Listed On Majority Of Products Tested!

Cease And Desist Letters Sent To GNC, Target,CVS, Walgreen And Walmart As Most Store Brand Supplements Were Found To Contain Contaminants Not Identified On Ingredient Labels. Just 21% Of Supplement Tests Identified DNA From Plant Species Listed on Labels but 79% were not able to identify the ingredients inside the bottles!


Avoid Dangerous Additives Hiding in Your Supplements Like Below;

BHT : Butylated hydroxyanisole has been shown to be toxic to the liver, thyroid, kidney, lungs, and affecting blood coagulation.(2) BHT can act as a tumor promoter.(3)

Hydrogenated Palm Oil Hydrogenating any oil turns the oil rancid and makes it into a strong free radical. Free radicals promote cancer and heart disease.

Talc:  Has been shown to cause cancer. (5,6,7)

Sodium Aluminosilicate:  Used as a food additive for its anti-caking effect.

Top Pharma-Brand of Children’s Vitamins Contains Aspartame, GMOs, & Other Hazardous Chemicals


The #1 Selling Kids Vitamin Brand in the U.S. contains ingredients that most parents would never intentionally expose their children too and the number one cause for Kids Brain Seizures”! So why aren’t more options for healthier alternatives?” Dr. Ted Broer (University of Miami)

On Bayer Health Science’s  Flintstones product page designed for healthcare professionals they lead into the product description with the following tidbit of information:
  • 82% of kids aren’t eating all of their veggies 1. Without enough vegetables, kids may not be getting all of the nutrients they need.
REF: 1. Lorson BA, Melgar-Quinonez HR, Taylor CA. Correlates of fruit and vegetable intakes in US children. J Am Diet Assoc. 2009;109(3):474-478.
The implication? That Flintstones vitamin somehow fills this nutritional void. But let’s look a little closer at some of these presumably healthy ingredients….


    Aspartame is a synthetic combination of the amino acids aspartic acid and l-phenylalanine, and is known to convert into highly toxic methanol and formaldehyde in the body.  Aspartame has been linked to over  40 adverse health effects in the biomedical literature, and has been shown to exhibit both  neurotoxicity and  carcinogenicity  [1]  What business does a chemical like this have done in a children’s vitamin, especially when non-toxic, non-synthetic non-nutritive sweeteners like  stevia already exist?


    Next, let’s look closer at Cupric Oxide, 2mg of which is included in each serving of Flinstone’s Complete chewable vitamins as a presumably  ‘nutritional’ source of ‘copper,’ supplying “100% of the Daily Value  (Ages 4+), according to Flintstones Vitamins Web site’s Nutritional Info. [2]

    But what is Cupric Oxide? A nutrient or a chemical?

    According to the European Union’s Dangerous Substance Directive, one of the main EU laws concerning chemical safety,  Cupric Oxide is listed as a Hazardous substance, classified as both  “Harmful (XN)” and “Dangerous for the environment” (N).  Consider that it has industrial applications as a pigment in ceramics, and as a chemical in the production of rayon fabric and dry cell batteries. In may be technically correct to call it a mineral, but should it be listed as a nutrient in a children’s vitamin? We think not.


    A well-known side effect of using synthetic dyes is attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. For direct access to study abstracts on this topic view our  Food Coloring research page.  There is also an indication that the neurotoxicity of artificial food coloring agents increases when combined with aspartame, [3] making the combination of ingredients in Flintstones even more concerning.


    Each serving of Flintstones Complete Chewable vitamins contains 12 mg of zinc oxide, which the manufacturer claims delivers 75% of the Daily Value to children 2  & 3 years of age.  Widely used as a sun protection factor (SPF) in sunscreens, The EU’s Dangerous Substance Directive classifies it as an environmental Hazard, “Dangerous for the environment (N).”   How it can be dangerous to the environment, but not for humans ingesting it, escapes me.  One thing is for sure if one is to ingest supplemental zinc, or market it for use by children, it makes much more sense using a form that is organically bound (i.e. ‘chelated’) to an amino acid like glycine, as it will be more bioavailable and less toxic.

    More Dangerous (and Common) Vitamin Fillers You Must Avoid!

    • Dangerous Filler #1: Hydrogenated Oils
    Partially hydrogenated (and hydrogenated) oils damage the body in numerous ways. They encourage heart problems, strokes, nervous system problems, block the absorption of essential fatty acids, upset blood sugar regulation and more.
    • Dangerous Filler #2: Artificial Colors
    Some of these artificial colors are derived from toxic coal tar. Coal tar is used for a variety of purposes some of which are roofing, outdoor sealants, exterior paints, heating…the list goes on but nothing on the list would indicate in any way that you should consume Coal tar.


    Dangerous Filler #4: Titanium Dioxide

    However, the research is now showing that exposure to this metal (along with other metals) can lead to problems with the immune function in the body.

    If you’re taking a vitamin to improve your health why would you even consider taking one with such a filler as this (or any of the others?) Clearly this is an unnecessary, unhealthy filler ingredient used by the huge vitamin producers in order to sell more of these low-quality vitamins.
