Samples were collected during 1975-76 from 1,436 nursing women in 150 hospitals across the country. Hospitals were selected at random from every region of the U.S. to ensure that the samples would be representative of all U.S. women. Pesticide compounds or metabolites detected in mother's milk included dieldrin, heptachlor, heptachlor epoxide, oxychlordane, DDT, BHC, Lindane, and HCB. No Mirex or chlordane were found in any of the samples. The results of this study were supplied to HEW for their review and assessment.
