I'm sure there are millions of 3rd world mothers & babies clueless about what to do with a tit without UN help.

Or...

How formula milk firms target mothers who can least afford it.

Quote:
A Guardian/Save the Children investigation in some of the most deprived areas of the Philippines found that Nestlé and three other companies were offering doctors, midwives and local health workers free trips to lavish conferences, meals, tickets to shows and the cinema and even gambling chips, earning their loyalty. This is a clear violation of Philippine law.

Representatives from Nestlé, Abbott, Mead Johnson and Wyeth (now owned by Nestlé) were described as a constant presence in hospitals in the Philippines, where only 34% of mothers exclusively breastfeed in the first six months. Here, they reportedly hand out “infant nutrition” pamphlets to mothers, which appear to be medical advice but in fact recommend specific formula brands and sometimes have money-off coupons.

Yes.

But then what is the relevance of that factoid to the topic of this tread? :roll:

Just wondering how you became a breast nazi.

I admit I am surprised.

Do your children still talk to you?

I like tits and vaginas are way cool.

But perhaps you should post more topical. ;)

Not the same thing. Maybe you never heard the phrase "breast nazi." Generally it describes a loose cadre of ideologically-informed opponents of "formula."

Irrelevant to the topic.

No. Just inconvenient for your claims.

Formula has saved alot of children. It's not a bad thing for Docs, Midwives etc to be well-informed about it.

Ima defer to Jack T if you need to hear it from a physician.

UN resolution to promote protect defend breastfeeding and block distribution of info on forumla.

Sounds like a garden variety breast nazi agenda.

Yes, in cases when the mother is unable to produce milk, infant formula is invaluable.

No need for that, I have already asked.

Not true.

Breast milk should be the first alternative, infant formula to cases where breastfeeding does not success.

But false advertising in underdeveloped countries to show infant formula as an alternative not substitute to breastfeeding is harmful.

This infant formula thing is similar to tobacco business.
