Breast feeding against interests of USA

A resolution to encourage breastfeeding was expected to be approved quickly and easily by the hundreds of government delegates who gathered this (northern) 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 US delegation, embracing the interests of infant formula manufacturers, upended the deliberations.

I'm glad the Russians stepped in. The US has a long tradition of doing this kind of thing.

Unfortunately, the USA is completely MONEY ORIENTATED!
Over there , your social status is not judged on breeding, but HOW MUCH MONEY YOU HAVE.
That's one of the reasons Trump is in power.
Mother's milk is the best. Some Mothers just can't manage to feed their babies, because of ill health, or demanding jobs etc. Those Ladies NEED the substitute.
I was very angry when awhile ago China bought up all our supplies, and our Mothers couldn't buy the milk sub. for their babies. We should beware of doing things like that just to make money.

Disgusting example of bully boy tactics in service of the interests of corporations.
They have gold bullion where a beating heart should be. :angry-devil: :angry-devil: :angry-devil:

America does NOT have gold bullion where its heart should be......it is just a little, shriveled up walnut with a dollar sign on it. :flaming_mad
