Now the Trump administration opposes breastfeeding! How in HELL can his supporters condone this?

Decades of research - but the US delegation to the WHO, backed by infant formula manufacturers, opposed the resolution and actually resorted to blackmail in an attempt to get Latin America to follow suit.

    Did a search, did not vett.

    The United States shocked world health officials by staunchly opposing a U.N. resolution that says mothers' milk is healthiest for babies and countries should work to curb misleading marketing from companies producing baby formula, reports the New York Times.


    The details: The resolution, which is based on extensive research about the health benefits of breast milk for babies, was expected to pass easily. "Then the United States delegation, embracing the interests of infant formula manufacturers, upended the deliberations," the Times' Andrew Jacobs writes.
