I’ve heard that even the Inuit people have man-made contaminants in their breast milk—does this mean all people of the world do?

    According to Healthy Child Healthy World, breast milk’s persistent organic pollutants make it the most contaminated of all human foods, with concentrations of organochlorine pollutants ( dioxin, PCBs and DDT, and ingredients of flame retardants, pesticides, wood preservatives, toilet deodorizers, and dry-cleaning fluids.). Breast milk is particularly vulnerable to chemical contamination because it exists one rung higher on the human food chain than the food that we adults eat, which allows poisons greater opportunity to concentrate.
