    There's a strong chance your baby's food contains traces of toxic heavy metals, including arsenic and lead, according to a new study.

    The research, commissioned by Healthy Babies Bright Futures (HBBF) and outlined in a report released Thursday, tested 168 baby foods for the presence of four heavy metals: arsenic, lead, mercury and cadmium, NBC news reported.

    They found that 95 percent of the baby foods were contaminated by at least one of the heavy metals, and one in four of the baby foods tested contained all four of the heavy metals.
