I just got done watching "Why I Wore Lipstick to My Mastectomy" on Lifetime. My mother is a breast cancer survivor so the subject hits close to home for me. I just so happened to notice that during almost every commercial break was an advertisment for Nestle Good Start Formula. As somebody who has had a close relative go through the horror of breast cancer and who has an increased risk of it myself I felt it was a slap in the face for them, a company who appears to be "fighting for a cure," to advertise something that increases the risk breast cancer! I mean, its not a little known fact that if you are using formula, you are not nursing (at least for that one feeding at the very least) or that breastfeeding decreases the risk of breast cancer. Why would they think it was okay to promote this, especially during this show? I guess the almighty dollar speaks louder than the cause. Anybody care to write a letter with me? You can do it here.
