Persistent organic pollutant (POP) that has been banned throughout the world. It is hope that those levels found in breast milk and other food will decrease within the next decades. It is not necessary to let breast milk be tested except if extraordinary exposure has occurred.

Benefits of breastfeeding are largely more important than risk related to the presence of mild level environment pollutants in human milk, in many instances, they are at lower content than those found in cow’s milk or other foods. (Codex alimentarius FAO-WHO).
