Scandal behind milk scandal

Behind the melamine poisoned milk scandal in China is another one – the economic and commercial pressure on women to use infant formula rather than breast feeding their babies themselves.

Country women go to cities for work, leaving their babies back home with their families, and advertising persuades mothers that baby formula is better than breast milk.

You can read the sorry saga here.

No companies advertise infant forumla in New Zealand. No New Zealand company should be involved in a company which advertises it elsewhere.

    so many scandals. sigh~. And those innocent babies just take whatever that was given to them.

    nevertheless, it is an eye-opener as well.
