Lots of contaminants concentration in the blood of infants obtained from concentrated breast milkMonday, 06 May 2013
A new research from the Swedish university of Örebro suggest that new
environmental toxins have been accumulate in the systems of our
This comes after blood tests show 20 times higher concentrations of those toxin in the babies than in their mothers.
Researchers at Örebro University through blood samples from infants are
able to determine a range of environmental toxins in the baby's
bloodstream. Normally, the concentrations of various pollutants in the
infant are as high as that of the mother. But there is a contaminant
that does not behave like other toxins - perfluorinated
perfluorooctanoic acid, also called PFOA.
Infants who are breastfed ingest high concentrations of the toxin via
the mother's milk and because PFOA is hardly biodegradable, it remains
and collected in the child's body.
Environmental chemist Jessika Hagberg told Swedish television that blood tests results definitely is a warning bell.
Perfluorinated chemicals are widely used in the processing of different
materials to create water, grease and dirt surfaces. And PFOA is used
mainly in the production of various plastics and Teflon, hence the
nickname "Teflon chemicals".
