Chemical contaminants in milk comprise chemical hazards that may introduce during milk production, dairy processing or packaging. Veterinary drugs, heavy metals, radionuclides, mycotoxins and pesticides are chemical contaminants that can enter to animal feed and they have some residues in milk.

      By the mids, the Mohawk community had issued a fishing advisory limiting fish consumption in the community and warning women of childbearing age, infants, and children under the age of fifteen eat no fish from the St. Lawrence Rive due to the PCB contamination of the fishery.   Here at the northernmost tip of New York, where the St. Lawrence River forms the boundaries of three nations -- the United States, Canada and acre Akwesasne Mohawk nation -- the.

Pregnant and nursing women, infants, and children. The objective of this paper is to relate local fish consumption to breast milk concentrations of total PCB and 68 PCB congeners in the Mohawk and com-parison women.

Breast milk was chosen as the sam-pling fluid since monitoring the levels of chemical contaminants in human milk is a useful. An earlier article explored the association between local fish consumption and concentrations of total PCB and selected PCB congeners in the breast milk of 97 nursing Mohawk women from Cited by: Chemical Contaminants in the Milk of Mohawk Women from Akwasasne.

This curiosity was the basis for the founding of the Mother's Milk Project, something that still is used to inform pregnant and breastfeeding woman of the dangers of PCB's and other dangerous contaminants.

Results revealed that the breast milk of the Mohawk women, who ate the most local fish, had a congener pattern that more closely resembled that of perch caught near the waste site or average Cited by:   For the Akwesasne Mohawk people, some of the biological consequences of local river contamination have been identified.

The socio‐cultural effects have been overlooked in risk assessments but are now being elucidated as well, largely by native peoples (Arquette et. Fifty-four individual human milk samples from 50 mothers (20 Mohawks and 30 controls) were analyzed for four non-ortho- and eight mono-ortho-substituted polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs).

Mean total coplanar PCBs concentrations were 49 ng/g and 55 ng/g lipid for Mohawk and control women, respectively. A statistical evaluation of all analytical data reveals no significant.

At Akwesasne, a midwife pushed for health studies because of concerns of local mothers about the number of miscarriages in the community and the possibility of contaminated breast milk. Studies found that Mohawk women who ate local fish had higher levels of contaminants in their breast milk than a control group (Fitzgerald et al.

This contamination has impacted the health, cultural resources, and sacred spots of the St. Regis Mohawk Tribe. This has resulted in the discontinuation of the once thriving fish markets, and an increase of health problems related to lack of traditional means of food. Sloan, R. Jock, K.

This request led to the discovery of widespread contamination in fish, wildlife, water, and sediment.

With help from the Quakers, Ms. Cook requested the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH 1) to test for chemical contaminants (PCBs and pesticides) in the breast milk of nursing Mohawk women.

This action led to the observation that Mohawk. Sloan, R. and Jock. Chemical contaminants in fish from the St. Lawrence River drainage on lands of the Mohawk Nation at Akwesasne and near the General Motors Corporation/ Central Foundry Division, Massena, New York.
