FLAME RETARDANTS IN BREAST MILK
'"It's disturbing to know this is in our bodies and it's being given to our children right off the bat.'
No studies have been done on the effects of PBDEs on humans, but lab tests on animals show the chemicals can harm learning and memory development.

Which makes babies the canary in our coal mine.
