36. You should try reading the article instead of going by what post #11 says
Patti Rundall, of the campaigning group Baby Milk Action, said moving to weaning at four months would be "a regrettable and backward step that is out of step with current scientific thinking".

She accused the paper's authors of taking funds from the babyfood industry. The paper acknowledges that three of the four authors "have performed consultancy work and/or received research funding from companies manufacturing infant formulas and baby foods within the past three years".

Fewtrell was unapologetic. Ideally, mothers would give their babies fresh food, including meat, for iron. "This is not an attempt to promote commercial weaning foods," she said. "We are a university and Medical Research Council-funded group." They had advised babyfood manufacturers because they were specialists in child nutrition, she said.

"Some organisations are all too happy to quote our data when it supports breastfeeding," she said. "They are choosy in what they will allow."


Are you into censorship?

You know that unrec'ing only moves it down the Greatest Page a notch? This only results in making it less visible and thereby possibly less DUers being able to join in the discussion.
