Our Kids are Really GOING PLACES

There was an in-depth article about this in the NY Times. Here’s the microversion from the free paper AM New York:

Breast milk found to contain rocket fuel

A toxic component of rocket fuel called perchlorate is contaminating “virtually all” samples of women’s breast milk, researchers at Texas Tech University have reported. Although the contaminant, which originates mostly at defense industry plants, previoiusly had been detected in food and water around the country, this study was the first to investigate breast milk. Problems associated with the chemicl can impair brain development in fetuses and infants.
