Why are we the American people being sold down the river for donations?

The studies done in the past have shown that Breast Feeding of infants lower developing asthma, diabetes, leukemia and other illnesses. (1)

Yet because some large companies that donate hunderds of thousands of dollars to the politicians and make baby formula complains about new advertising compaigns that state these facts the government is changing the way they advertise the benefits of breast feeding.(2)

Plain and simple, we are being sold out again.


(1)A study found children who were breast-fed for at least one month had a 21 percent lower risk of developing two forms of childhood leukemia ? acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).

(2)"Federal officials have softened a national advertising campaign to promote breastfeeding after complaints from two companies that make infant formula, according to several doctors and nurses who are helping the government with the effort."
