Not sure if somebody posted this earlier or not...

"...with health officials arguing that aggressive advertising by U.S. and British companies has some women believing formula is better than their own milk.

With breast-feeding rates declining across Asia, the Philippine Health Department last year proposed regulations to strengthen its national milk code, which already bans formula companies from advertising products made for babies less than a year old.

New rules would extend that ban to cover ads for formula made for children up to 2 years old."

Awesome. Wish we had rules here like that. But I'm pissed that the US Chamber of Commerce is standing up for the formula companies. Not surprised, just mad.
