I’ve written before about lead concerns and no it is reported that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has discovered lead in 99 percent of over-the-counter women’s and children’s vitamins.In case you’re not freaked out enough this apparently includes prenatal vitamins as well.

It is not as if the results of lead poisoning, particularly in young children and if course, in utero. It is known to result in nervous system damage, kidney damage, developmental disabilities, speech and behavior probems, coordination difficulties and hearing damage.

Of course the FDA reports that the lead levels were in the “Safe exposure levels”.

There is a full list of products available on the FDA website and more information at this link http://www.treehugger.com/files/2008/09/lead-in-vitamins.php
