So it is no secret FM is very pro BF. I am a bit Earth Mama, as I am sure you can infer. But one reason is, I don’t trust the FDA, etc. I KNOW what I put in my body, and therefore what is in MY Breast Milk. My DD is 2, and still BF’s 3x/day.
An excerpt from the article…
By MIKE STOBBE, AP Medical Writer – Fri Apr 3, 1:51 PM PDT ATLANTA – Traces of a chemical used in rocket fuel were found in samples of powdered baby formula, and could exceed what’s considered a safe dose for adults if mixed with water also contaminated with the ingredient, a government study has found. The study by scientists at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention looked for the chemical, perchlorate, in different brands of powdered baby formula. It was published last month, but the Environmental Working Group — a Washington, D.C.-based advocacy organization — issued a press release Thursday drawing attention to it.
