The Politics of Breastfeeding: When Breasts are Bad for Business

by Gabrielle Palmer - £11.99  Pinter & Martin Ltd. (2009)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781905177165 | ISBN 10: 190517716x

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 companiesí thirst for profit systematically undermines mothersí 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.
