The Globe and Mail: "Girls warned to cut back on meat, whole milk"

From Thursday's Globe and Mail

"Girls should markedly cut back their consumption of red meat, poultry and whole milk to reduce their exposure to dioxin, a chemical that can build up in the body and, in their childbearing years, harm their babies, a U.S. scientific panel says."
The levels of dioxins in the breast milk of women in Canada's Far North is five-times higher than among women in the south."
