Opposition to Breastfeeding Introduction

Now, this I don’t understand. Breastmilk was always taught to us as the better option. Babies don’t get the same nutrients and bacteria as if they get it straight from their mother. How are they to build their immune systems if they can’t start with their mom? I try not to be political but I just don’t get this move. It isn’t supposed to be all about business is all I have to say. It should be up to the parents. Sorry, I just had to share this with you all.

Here’s the excerpt for you all.

Excerpt

“A resolution to encourage breastfeeding was expected to be approved quickly and easily by the hundreds of government delegates who gathered this spring in Geneva for the United Nations-affiliated World Health Assembly.

Based on decades of research, the resolution says that mother’s milk is healthiest for children and countries should strive to limit the inaccurate or misleading marketing of breast milk substitutes.

Then the United States delegation, embracing the interests of infant formula manufacturers, upended the deliberations.”
