4 Color etching and aquatint Image size: 7 x 5 inches Part of the series, "Poetics of Blood and Milk" Series description: Ancient Greek medical abstracts theorized that tumors located in the breast poisoned, soured, or completely inhibited the production of milk. Furthermore, mother's milk and the blood of the uterine lining were thought to be directly connected. This meant that afflictions to breast tissue were also toxic to the womb. Consequently, a child conceived in the womb of a breast cancer patient would contract the illness or the womb would be rendered barren. Into the eighteenth century, physicians maintained the belief that cancer was contagious, and could be passed to a nursing infant.
