A word of caution about human milk

Health Canada has warned about the inherent risks involved in the consumption of breast milk from absolute strangers.

The human milk is capable of causing food poisoning if it is contaminated with viruses. There are chances that the human milk carries remnants of drugs or medication, which could cause harm when consumed. Even unhygienic storage of milk, and not adhering to hygienic standards while extracting the milk can be a reason for many illnesses.
