Breast Milk Contains Oodles of Toxins

The Environmental Working Group published a report on the toxicity of breast milk. The research found breast milk to contain, “paint thinners, dry-cleaning fluids, wood preservatives, toilet deodorizers, cosmetic additives, gasoline byproducts, rocket fuel, termite poisons, fungicides and flame retardants.”

These chemicals can remain in the tissue long enough to pass the chemicals onto their own children.

The report was published in 2004 but how much you wanna bet the results are as valid, if not more, today?

Don’t switch to the Similac yet, the EWG advises that breastfeeding is still the best.

Thank goodness. Those packets can be a little chalky.
