Mother Child Statue: OtomeTsuka

"These toxics build up in the food chain and concentrate in our bodies. Do you know what is the food at the top of the food chain with the highest levels of many toxic contaminants? Human breast milk. That means that we have reached a point where the smallest members of our societies—our babies— are getting their highest lifetime dose of toxic chemicals from breastfeeding from their mothers. Is that not an incredible violation? Breastfeeding must be the most fundamental human act of nurturing; it should be sacred and safe. Now breastfeeding is still best and mothers should definitely keep breast-feeding, but we should protect it. They [government] should protect it. I thought they were looking out for us. And of course, the people who bear the biggest brunt of these toxic chemicals are the factory workers.. "
