the story of stuff
do you know what is the food at the top of the food chain with the highest level of many toxic contaminants? human breast milk. that means that we have reached a point where the smallest members of our societies - our babies - are getting the highest lifetime dose of toxic chemicals from breastfeeding from their mothers. is that not an incredible violation? breastfeeding must be the most fundamental human act of nurturing. it should be sacred and safe. now breastfeeding is still best and mothers should definitely keep breastfeeding, but we should protect it.
