PostSubject: The politics of breastfeeding   Tue Jun 29, 2010 5:21 am

If it works, breastfeeding is so obvious, so intuitive, so easy, so efficient and tidy, so emotional and fulfilling, so heartwarming, so incredibly beautiful, that the existence of a book on the topic is baffling to you. It would be like having a book called How to Breathe, or What to Do If You Don't Like Nature, or Your Guide to Appreciating Birdsong or Friendship or Sunlight.

This book is the most profound exploration of the global and personal costs of artificial feeding I have encountered. It is heartbreaking, challenging, and a page-turner. If more healthcare professionals and policy makers read this book and acted morally, the despair permeating it would be reduced.

As revealing as "Freakonomics", shocking as "Fast Food Nation" and thought provoking as "No Logo", "The Politics of Breastfeeding" exposes infant feeding as one of the most important public health issues of our time. Every thirty seconds a baby dies from infections due to a lack of breastfeeding and the use of bottles, artificial milks and other risky products. In her powerful book Gabrielle Palmer describes how big business uses subtle techniques to pressure parents to use alternatives to breastmilk. The infant feeding product companies' thirst for profit systematically undermines mothers' confidence in their ability to breastfeed their babies. An essential and inspirational eye-opener, "The Politics of Breastfeeding" challenges our complacency about how we feed our children and radically reappraises a subject which concerns not only mothers, but everyone: man or woman, parent or childless, old or young. It is the 3rd fully revised and updated edition. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

The first edition of the book was published more than 20 years ago, in 1988. In the preface to this third edition, Palmer surveys the changes in feeding practices over the past two decades and concludes that we now have a far greater knowledge about the positive effects of breastfeeding, but the baby food industry continues to engage in ever more aggressive marketing of their products and the spread of misinformation about breastfeeding.

If a multinational company developed a product that was a nutritionally balanced and delicious food, a wonder drug that both prevented and treated disease, cost almost nothing to produce and could be delivered in quantities controlled by consumers' needs, the announcement of this find would send its shares rocketing to the top of the stock market. The scientists who developed the product would win prizes and the wealth and influence of everyone involved would increase dramatically. Women have been producing such a miraculous substance, breastmilk, since the beginning of human existence, yet they form the least wealthy and the least powerful half of humanity.
