Copper is used by at least 18 enzymes in the body. Copper is needed to help your body use iron. It is also important for nerve function, bone growth, and to help the body use sugar and oxygen. It is normally found in various foods such as grain, chicken, legumes, beans and nuts. Babies normally get it from the breast milk. To little copper will cause cooper deficiency which is associated with various symptoms including anemia, nerve dysfunction and low blood cell count. If you decided to make and sell a baby formula it would be incredibly irresponsible, and probably a crime not to include important minerals. The amounts needed for the body is at milligram levels per day. You are reading the safety sheet from a product containing pure copper sulfate! Eating pure metal is obviously toxic both for humans, plants and insects. Read the MSDS for pure iron salt (ferrous sulfate in the formula), manganese sulfate, potassium iodide etc and you will find similar language. Nobody is suggesting feeding a baby pure copper or copper salt with a spoon, but without the tiny amounts from breast milk or formula the baby would not stand a chance to grow up to become a healthy child.

They’re doing ok but looking back I’d much rather my wife breast fed them.

Furthermore it seems many of these so-called “nutrients” are either extracted and concentrated or are chemically synthesized then re-added to things like formulas.

It seems that in the past people used canned milk, water and baby vitamins for formula. I don’t know….I think it is a good idea to actually read the ingredients and research them to find out exactly what they are instead of assuming that it is all safe or that all the ingredients are what they claim to be.

Surely it must of been okay because you are here now and seem healthy. My question is why are corn syrup solids (another name for sugar) and sugar the top two ingredients? HUH?! How is sugar healthy for your infant? Is that why so many kids are coming down with diabetes or overweight?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copper_in_health#Fetuses.2C_infants.2C_and_children

Babies on formula or cows milk often do not get enough copper. The cupric sulfate is a dietary copper supplement that is required for proper growth of infants.

It also contains vitamin A. Vitamin A is extremely toxic in 100% pure form and too much will cause blindness.

It is found in quite a few vitamin supplements. So assuming there is not vast amounts it should not be a problem, just as over dosing on water intake can be detrimental to ones health

Did you know that vitamins found in plants are really insecticides and fungicides as far as the plant is concerned. And that metallic selenium is toxic while selenium found in pasta (which is very high in this mineral) is actually healthy. The only thing questionable here is how much study and research you have done on this topic – seems like not much.
