Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Gabrielle Palmer, a nutritionist, helped establish the UK pressure group Baby Milk Action, and co-directed the International Breastfeeding Practice and Policy Course at The Institute of Child Health in London. In this work for general readers, first published in 1988 by Pandora Press, she exposes collusion between baby food companies and the medical, nutritional and healthcare establishments to suppress breastfeeding, especially in developing countries. She busts common myths about breastfeeding, chronicles the history of its status throughout the centuries, and reviews the impact of modern documents and declarations on breastfeeding by international entities. This third edition is updated in light of new research on the health benefits of breastfeeding, and describes current promotion tactics by baby formula companies. The book is illustrated with b&w photos and political cartoons; it includes about 12 pages of document excerpts, and a list of organizations. It is distributed in North America by the National Book Network. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
