Arch Pediatr Adolesc Med 150(9):981;1996
OBJECTIVE: To review data on the occurrence and toxicity of the commonly reported pesticides and industrial environmental pollutant chemicals in breast milk. DATA SOURCES: Continuous automated literature surveillance plus contact with investigators and governmental agencies. STUDY SELECTIONS: For data on occurrence, the most recent data from the largest data sets on the most representative donors were used. For data on toxicity, the primary report that was publicly available was used. DATA EXTRACTION: When necessary, data were reexpressed or concentrations were rescaled. The original investigator was contacted if necessary. DATA SYNTHESIS: Although pollutant chemicals are readily detected in most human milk worldwide, there is little evidence for consequent morbidity in nurslings.
