Milk of Human Kindness: Defending Breastfeeding from the Global Market and AIDS Industry


Product Information

Breastfeeding, which protects the lives and health of infants and lays the basis for the health of the whole population, seems to be increasing again. But the attack against it has intensified. HIV/AIDS is the latest excuse for promoting breast milk substitutes. Unicef, once the leading advocate of "breast is best" has now begun to promote formula, the first junk food, and is making deals with MacDonald's and Coca-Cola, the follow-on junk foods. This book also introduces us to the counter-attack, the new movement against "the baby killers" and the action urgently needed to protect new life.

The attack on breastfeeding is an attack on all of us, on our right to the best, from birth, freely given. With this book we see not only the value of breastfeeding but also the forces for and against this caring work of women - in fact, for and against life itself.

Written by Solveig Francis, Selma James, Phoebe Jones Schellenberg and Nina Lopez-Jones. Published by Crossroads Books, 2002.
