Breastfeeding Concerns: Chemical Exposure Related Articles

New research has confirmed that exposure to Bisphenol A (BPA) – a well-known endocrine disruptor – through mothers' breast milk is widespread.
Written by Eleni Roumeliotou
Breastfeeding is not simply a source of nutrients for the newborn. The mother, through her breast milk quality, programs critical immunological, metabolic and microbiological aspects of the baby’s physiology that will determine greatly his/her health status, even as an adult.
Nursing school researchers have determined that a majority of mothers' breastmilk and the urine of low-exposure babies contain the hormone disruptor bisphenol A (BPA).
Written by Sustainable Pulse
In the first ever testing on glyphosate herbicide in the breast milk of American women, Moms Across America and Sustainable Pulse have found 'high' levels in 3 out of the 10 samples tested.
