“Results revealed that the breast milk of the Mohawk women, who ate the most local fish, had a congener pattern that more closely resembled that of perch caught near the waste site or average sampled fish caught in the Reserve than Mohawk women who ate less fish or the controls. The outcome demonstrates how PCBs may be ``fingerprinted'' as they migrate offsite from industrial sources and ultimately result in human exposure. “ (from abstract) Overall this paper is added data that may be of use but says nothing that is not already on the record.
