Research conducted on 130 pregnant women

This could be a contributing factor in the rising death rates. Researchers at Lucknow’s Queen Mary Hospital discovered pesticides in the breast milk of expectant mothers. To determine the cause of the newborns’ deaths, testing on 130 pregnant vegetarian and non-vegetarian women was done.

Environmental Research General also published the study, which was conducted by Professor Sujata Dev, Dr. Abbas Ali Mehndi, and Dr. Naina Dwivedi. According to the report, vegetarian women produced milk with fewer pesticides than non-vegetarian women. However, even in the breast milk of mothers who avoid eating meat, chemicals have been discovered. According to the research, chemical farming is the cause of the pesticide in milk.

Green vegetables and other crops are treated with different pesticides and herbicides. Additionally, vitamins and chemicals are injected into animals, which has resulted in the creation of pesticides in the milk of non-vegetarian food consumers.

A vegetarian woman’s breast milk had half the amount of pesticides that a non-vegetarian woman’s did. Despite not eating any meat or produce, a baby nevertheless consumes pesticides through the mother’s milk.

Infants have been seriously damaged by breast milk, which contains several pesticides. To determine the cause of the surge in death rates, the District Magistrate (DM) established a three-person committee with the Chief Development Officer (CDO) serving as its head. The Chief Divisional Officer (CDO), Sub Divisional Magistrate (SDM), and Chief Medical Superintendent (CMS) will serve as the committee’s chairpersons.
