How beneficial is breastfeeding?


A new study makes some audacious claims about the supposed value of breastfeeding.

Apparently, such claims are both very common and very controversial.

I’m not familiar with the relevant epidemiological literature, but I suspect that debates in this area are influenced heavily by, among other things, the economic interests of formula makers, the cultural politics of motherhood, and plenty of other non-scientific factors.
