I read the web posting and there is no specific information. This appears
to be continuing assertions without supporting information. Yes, I-131 can
get in the food chain from cows ending up in milk. But for there to be
significant amount of I-131 in breast milk, from what source, requires
further evidence. No mention of the techniques used to sample the breast
milk, nor the facility that conducted the testing. What is their expertise
in analyzing samples. I am not saying that there isn't the possibility of
I-131 in breast milk, but I would take a majority of what was in this
website assertions with a grain of salt, until further scientific evidence
is provided. This website contains absolutely nothing, but scare tactics,
that have been seen in many other web postings from Japan.
