Study Finds Rocket Fuel Chemical In Breast Milk

`A toxic chemical used to make rocket fuel was found in every sample taken in a new study of the milk of nursing mothers.

But Texas Tech researchers said it’s too early to know whether the perchlorate levels are dangerous. [..]

The review found that every sample of breast milk contained perchlorate, and only one sample of dairy milk contained no detectable levels. The concentration of the chemical in the breast milk samples was on average five times those detected in dairy milk pulled from grocery stores.’
