Nursing mothers and DDT

No, it doesn’t mean Drop Dead Twice. :stuck_out_tongue: This was an insecticide banned more than 25 years ago. I once read that it was not advisable for mothers to nurse their babies because mother’s milk contained DDT, though I have not the foggiest idea how it would get into milk. Am I correct?

According to this chart,
DDT has no impact on breast feeding. IIRC, one of the largest environmental impacts of DDT was that it caused birds’ eggs to crumble before hatching.

Thanks, Ursa. :slight_smile:
