How does bioaccumulation affect pregnant moms?



  1. 0 Votes

    One of the main ways that bioaccumulation can affect a pregnant mom is through mercury accumulation in fish, leading to recommendations that pregnant women limit their fish intake. Mercury can cause birth defects in unborn children. Other things to consider are pesticides, chemicals, drugs and alcohol and pollutants that can accumulate and be transferred to a child through cord blood or breast milk.
