Breast milk sold online may have harmful bacteria; study says buyer beware CHICAGO Human breast milk is sold for babies on several online sites for a few dollars an ounce, but a new study.

The study, lead by researcher Sarah Keim, found that almost 75 percent of breast milk tested from the milk selling site Only the Breast.com contained disease-causing bacteria and germs similar to. In a previous study, Keim and her colleagues found that breast milk samples bought online contained potentially harmful levels of bacteria and tested positive for a virus called cytomegalovirus. Kim Updegrove, president of the Human Milk Banking Association of North America, said purchasing milk outside of standardized human milk banks is risky.

Study: Breast milk bought online likely to contain bacteria Nearly 75% of breast milk samples purchased online contained illness-causing bacteria and often showed signs of poor collection, storage or shipping practices, according to a recent study. Only 9 percent of the milk from the websites contained no detectable bacteria. The study concluded 74 percent of the samples from the websites would have been banned from milk banks. Milk banks.

HUMAN breast milk for babies sold cheaply online may contain potentially dangerous bacteria including salmonella, according to a new study. The warning comes from researchers who bought and tested 101 breast milk samples sold by women on one popular site, which over the weekend said it was making changes to its policies. The researchers did not name the specific websites used in their study but said the contaminated samples came from a U.S. milk-sharing website that uses a classified ad format.

Of 101 samples purchased anonymously, nearly three-quarters of the samples contained bacteria that could make a baby sick, including three batches that tested positive for salmonella.

    If it did/does kill babies then I would be thankful I know

  • By studying the ‘all meat’ diet of Inuit tribes, scientists have discovered that carbohydrates are 100% inessential. Cut all carbs and sugar, and your body will switch from burning carbs for energy to burning fat for energy. Carbs causes inflammation, inflammation causes vast majority of all human illnesses.

    Check out the e-book
    A Breath of Fresh Air by Emory E., available on amazon.

  • I’m pretty sure my friend back in school had this issue. I feel so bad for anyone with this. I have social anxiety so it sounds like a nightmare to me.

  • The ” benefits” of sugar and carbs are evident in the American public. Just look around. Bunch of fat slobs with sore knees, bad backs, heart issues, diabetes etc.

  • I feel like these sharks are use to boats feeding them and that’s the reason they stay by the boats swarming it instead of the blood or pee

  • Dr. Paul Mason has a wonderful descriptin for dietry fibres that end up as bulk matter in the stool, which he does not agree with. The way he put it is” It’s like adding cars to a traffic jam.” Why add a whole lot more to pass through such a small hole?

  • My armpits started smelling different. What could that be? They smelled like normal bad armpit smell before and now they smell different. Can’t really describe it though.

  • When you come to a “science” video and the commenters are smarter than the presenter.

    Show me one carbohydrate deficiency disease.

  • You assume only Carbohydrates are required for health…this is TOTALLY FALSE… Proteins and fats are Essential for life… there is no thing as an Essential Carbohydrate…

  • Yeah but my cat doesn’t respond to dry food any more because i give them slices of ham. They go straight to the fridge.

    Maybe seeing it’s the Bahamas, the boat should have been removed from the equation somehow.

  • So I wonder what Disease HILLARY CLINTON has. It is said that she smells terrible. Like onions and puke �� No one ever stands close to her because she smells so bad. Dirty diapers maybe. Or bad hygiene.

  • The woman probably did not know her breast milk had the bacteria. But then again why would mothers buy breast milk online. It sounds disgusting

  • Is it just me or did any other theatre kids think of Yorktown from Hamilton when she said ‘tens of thousands of women’ at the start!!����

  • The fact that these conditions exist suggests that the genetic variations are an evolutionary spreadbet meaning that some people may survive certain diseases and syndromes.

  • 100gr of sugar per day? Lol my regular sugar intake is 15-20gr a day so just had a cheat meal a while ago and it only made my sugar intake 48gr that day. After that I literally walked around bloated and puffy for almost two days. So never go for bananas again!

  • Gluten made me sweat and smell even straight after a shower, affects the glands maybe and is very bad for you as Dr Wiliam Davis mentions.
