    It's frightening though, isn't it. I used to be big on "natural products" and have got slack lately. I've been cleaning with chemicals and eating processed food. I'll take this as a wake-up call and a reminder to get back to clean living.
    Same, I used to live chemical free, organic and no processed anything and veggo. And now I eat chocolate every day, clean with chemicals and drink about 4 or 5 coffees. So bad!

    I doubt this is true. If the toxins are in our environment they are everywhere. An extra year of BF would just mean they ingest some from breast milk rather than water, creams, fast food, cleaning products etc.

    Dont extended breast feed BUT do feed your child 2 serves of genetically modified, chemically sprayed fruit and 5 serves of the above messed with veggies, please aim to have them drink 2 litres of flouride filled water and dont forget to brush their teeth, wash their hair and give them a bubble bath.


    Toxins are almost everywhere and to joe average i some how think extended breast feeding is yhe least thing to be concerned about.

    You're right, our environment is a toxic minefield and it should be a big deal, but breastfeeding doesn't need to come into the bigger picture.

    But you can have control over some of the toxic influences in your home, there are better and safer choices to be made.
