Top Children’s Vitamins Full of Aspartame, GMOs & Harmful Chemicals

Hello again,

I've borrowed a copy of this article as it has a great list of dangerous ingredients found in many foods, these are ingredients you will want to look for on the label of all packaged products so you don't end up serving poison.

"How often are parents aware of the ingredients contained in the multivitamin

that they feed their children? We often believe what we hear without ever

questioning what mass marketing and media has to say about a product. In this

case they have led thousands of parents to purchase multivitamins because they

believe it has significant nutritional value. But do these vitamins truly

provide nutritional benefit? If so, at what cost?

If we look at the Flintstones vitamin, (one of the top multivitamins in the

United States) it contains a number of genetically-modified organisms (GMOs),

aspartame, aluminum, petroleum-derived artificial colours and more. All of

these ingredients are not optimal for health and can be very toxic. You can

view the entire list of ingredients here.

Lets take a closer look at some of these ingredients.


Aspartame is known to damage the brain at any dose by leaving traces of

Methanol in the blood. It makes you wonder why Aspartame has been approved as

“safe” and is found in thousands of food products; not to mention children’s

vitamins. It’s also linked to Lymphoma and Leukaemia. You can read more about

that here and here (sources provided at the bottom). It’s basically a

synthetic combination of the amino acids aspartic acid and I-phenylalanine.

It’s known to convert into toxic methanol and formaldehyde in the body.

Hopefully this motivates you to further your research. If you are looking for

specific studies, you can check out these ones published in the US National

Library of Medicine:

Consumption of artificial sweetener and risk of lymphoma and leukaemia

Effect of chronic exposure to aspartame

Long-term consumption of aspartame and brain antioxidant defense status

Aspartame-induces impairment of spatial cognition and insulin sensitivity

Synergistic interactions between food additives in a developmental

neurotoxicity test

Multipotential carcinogenic effects of aspartame


Sorbitol is a synthetic sugar substitute which is classified as a sugar

alcohol. The ingestion of higher amounts have been linked to gastrointestinal

disturbances from abdominal pain to more serious conditions such as irritable

bowel syndrome. You can view some studies related to Sorbitol below:

Sorbitol intolerance in adults

Sorbitol intolerance: an unappreciated cause of functional gastrointestinal


Sorbitol used as an osmotic cathartic has caused severe hypernatremia

(elevation of sodium in the blood) in children

Hydrogenated Soybean Oil

Anything marketed to children that contains hydrogenated soybean oil is

irresponsible. They are semi-synthetic fatty acids that incorporate themselves

into our tissues. They’ve been linked to dozens of harmful health effects,

from coronary artery disease to cancer and fatty liver disease. You can view a

number of links to studies conducted here.

Ferrous Fumarate

This is quite remarkable that Ferrous Fumarate is an ingredient here. There is

a clear warning on the Flintstone’s web site concerning this chemical. It’s

used as an iron supplement. When consuming iron that comes naturally in food,

it’s impossible to inject toxic amounts that can cause death. But when taking

Ferrous Fumarate, fatal levels of toxicity can be reached.

Accidental overdose of iron-containing products is a leading cause of fatal

poisoning in children under 6. Keep this product out of reach of children. In

case of accidental overdose, call a doctor or poison control centre

immediately (1)

Studies have been conducted that show ferrous fumarate doesn’t even affect

iron status in children, you can read that study here. Below are links to a

few more studies, out of many:

Ferrous fumarate increases clinical disease activity in inflammatory bowel

disease patients

Ferrous fumarate deteriorated plasma antioxidant status in patients with Crohn


Ferrous fumarate has been demonstrated to be toxic to newborn foals

Cupric Oxide

According the European Union’s Dangerous Substance Directive, Cupric Oxide is

listed as a hazardous substance. It’s classified as both harmful and dangerous

to the environment. It is used as a pigment in ceramics and as a chemical in

the production of rayon fabric and dry cell batteries. It is indeed a mineral,

but should this really be a nutrient in a children’s vitamin?

Brief Summary of Bayer Pharmaceuticals

Most pharmaceutical companies, like Bayer, the developer of the Flintstones

vitamins, do not have the best track record. Bayer is a German chemical and

pharmaceutical company founded in 1863.  In 1925, it became part of IG Farben,

a German chemical industry conglomerate. This chemical company had board

members that were responsible for the creation of the Federal Reserve, like

Paul Warburg(2), who sat on the board of the Federal Reserve as well as I.G

Farben. It was a corporation well connected with the Rockefeller’s, and the

second largest shareholder in Standard Oil. The investment was part of a

pattern of reciprocal investments between the U.S. and Germany during the Nazi

years(3). It’s well known that IG Farben was closely connected with the

Nazi’s. They held the patent for the pesticide Zyklon B, the chemical used in

gas chambers. Some of IG Farben’s directors were accused as war criminals,

while others continued on with the agenda we see taking form today. We can see

a conflict of interest through the companies shareholders when it comes to the

creation of pharmaceutical products.

I think it’s time for us to examine what we choose to feed our children. All

it takes is a little investigation and stepping into our own awareness of what

is going on around us. Many of us live a robotic life style, we are all here

doing the same thing. We’ve been programmed to grow up, work and spend most of

our hours doing just that. While we participate in a  9-5, eat sleep watch TV,

participate in a number of activities for entrainment purposes type of

reality, there are those working behind the scenes manipulating the

consciousness of the human race. All we have to do is notice, after that we

can begin making better choices in our own lives. The world is indeed waking

up, something new is desired, the current Earth paradigm is one many people

don’t resonate with any more. A lot of us feel that it’s time to move on, grow

and explore our infinite potentiality.
