US averse to breastfeeding?
at the World Health Assembly recognising decades of research that says breast milk is the healthiest for babies ran into trouble when the US tried to water it down. American officials sought to remove language that called on governments to "protect, promote and support" breastfeeding, along with language calling on policymakers to limit the promotion of food products, such as infant formula, that can be harmful to young children. When that failed, they turned to threats of retribution on trade and military aid, the New York Times reported, citing over a dozen participants on anonymity. Eventually, Russia introduced the resolution, and the US was unable to blunt the measure. Lashing out at the "fake news story", President Donald Trump tweeted the US "strongly supports" breastfeeding but women should not be "denied access to formula".
