An international agreement to support breastfeeding by restricting the promotion of infant formula is not being enforced, according to a study of advertising practices in four major cities. Studies have shown that women who receive commercial discharge packs containing formula or bottles are less likely to be breastfeeding at 4 months than women given products consistent with the code, such as breast pads and pamphlets on breastfeeding. From 8% to 50% of clinics had been given samples, and up to 18% of clinics accepted gifts from companies that manufacture or distribute breast-milk substitute products. Each year, 1.5 million infant deaths worldwide could be prevented if mothers breast-fed their babies exclusively for about 6 months and continuing up until age 2, according to the World Health Organization. This sound like a quack or legit tidbit?
