A groundbreaking study in 2004 by the Environmental Working Group showed that the umbilical cord carries not only sustenance for your baby but also a steady stream of industrial chemicals, pollutants and pesticides.  Out of 413 pollutants tested, 287 were found in the umbilical cord by taking cord blood samples.

Some ways to avoid contaminating your baby:
+  Avoid inoculations with thimerosal (flu shot has it)
+  Exercise regularly, it is a great detoxifier.
+  Don’t drink alcohol and start drinking filtered water
+  Take a prenatal vitamin
+  Clean up your diet!   That means less processed or boxed foods
     and way more organic and fresh ones.
