The Green party made their warning after testing the breast milk of 16 women from a variety of German regions.

Traces of glyphosate, a chemical used in weed-killers, amounting to between 0.210 and 0.432 nanograms per mililitre (PPB) were recorded.

In drinking water a quantity of no more than 0.100 nanograms of the substance is allowed.
