The early years of your childs life are VERY important. You do all you can to love and care for them and ensure they are kept safe. Yet, what if the foods they are exposed to have the potential to cause them harm, even before they are born? For expecting mums or those preparing for pregnancy, this app is an ESSENTIAL tool to reduce risks. A KEY FEATURE is the list of food chemicals that are known or suspected teratogens. Teratogenic food additives are those that may cause reproductive failure, birth defects, growth and mental development retardation, foetal damage and/or death. Often the effects of abnormal embryo development are present at birth, yet they also may not be diagnosed until later in life. It is, therefore, important to become aware of the potential dangers of these food additives and avoid them wherever possible.
