Researchers Find Toxic Chemical in Breast Milk of 100 Percent of U.S. Mothers Studied
A study has shown that PFAS contaminants were found in the breast milk of 100 percent of U.S. mothers who participated in a research project.
The peer-reviewed study has been published in the Environmental Science and Technology journal. It found PFAS contaminants in the breast milk of all 50 samples tested in the study, and these chemicals never break down once they have entered the human body.
“The study shows that PFAS contamination of breast milk is likely universal in the US, and that these harmful chemicals are contaminating what should be nature’s perfect food,” said Erika Schreder, a co-author of the study who serves as science director with Toxic Free Future, a Seattle-based non-profit that raises awareness about these potentially harmful chemicals.
PFAS contaminants have been linked to birth defects, cancer, thyroid problems, declining sperm counts, liver failure, and many other health problems. Based on the findings of this study, some of the PFAS levels of the breast milk were over 2,000 times higher than what is normally recommended for drinking water to be considered safe for human ingestion.
Sheela Sathyanarayana, a co-author of the study who works as a pediatrician with the University of Washington, believes that the prevalence of PFAS contaminants in breast milk could lead to hormonal deficiencies and immune problems.
“What it speaks to is that the chemicals are so ubiquitous that we can’t really predict who will have the highest exposures,” she said.
Additionally, it has been revealed that chemical companies such as DuPont and Daikin knew of the dangers of PFAS contaminants but withheld the information from the public so they could rake in big profits.
Daikin and DuPont refused to let Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officials know about studies that demonstrated the dangers of PFAS contaminants. These chemicals can still be found in containers and packaging in stores across America.
A 2009 study obscured by Daikin showed PFAS contamination caused damages to the kidneys and livers of lab rats during testing. DuPont discovered in 2012 through internal data that the PFAS contaminant stays in animals’ bodies for much longer than initially realized. If the FDA were aware of this research at the time, a leading watchdog believes the chemical would not have received approval.
“Those things shouldn’t happen, and if they do then there should be consequences, but oversight is lax,” said Maricel Maffini, a researcher who focuses on PFAS in food packaging, who noted that DuPont and Daikin have suffered no repercussions for what are likely criminal acts.
Americans are being poisoned, and the guilty parties are getting off scot free. This type of rule is part and parcel under globalism where the individual has no rights and is forced to submit to technocratic edicts.
