Safe for Breastfeeding?

Posted by D'Lane (Brazoria, Texas) on 03/21/2007

I was wondering about drinking the a.c.v. while I am nursing. I know that it can be a form of detoxing and the bad junk has to go somewhere.I was wondering if it would go in my milk and then bother my child? I have read on this site about pregnant mothers drinking the a.c.v., but not nursing ones. Thank you!

Most toxic substances are rid of the mother by normal means by way of the bowels, and other elimination systems such as sweat. Breast milk is usually not affected unless the food is toxic. It is not considered an elimination system.
