Battle over breast feeding

Posted: Updated:

An unexpected battle over breast-feeding when the U.S. surprised the World Health Assembly by taking a stand against a resolution that supports breast-feeding rather than formula milk. According to the New York times, a delegation from the U.S. threatened nations with retribution on military aid as well as trade.

However the U.S. wasn't successful at stopping the measure. The State Department wouldn't comment to the times on the issue, claiming it can't discuss private diplomatic discussions.
