Tricks of the Infant Food Industry

This is sort-of a follow-up to a recent post on artificial breastmilk (infant formula). Here’s the link to an article that talks more about it (thanks, Dale!). Just mind-boggling.

While U.S. infants can survive on formula, many third-world infants cannot. Not only is drinking water scarce or disease-ridden in many areas, but formula is so expensive that many women cannot afford it, so they often dilute the formula to make it stretch. But then the baby doesn’t get enough nutrients.

Breastfeeding is free! And it’s better than formula! What’s not to like?
