The wonder drug that works wonders!

Aspirin? I’m thinking of something else… “Imagine if today, scientists discovered a drug that could save 13 per cent of all the babies who currently die. Now imagine that drug also made your baby cleverer – and dramatically slashed her chances of developing heart disease, diabetes, leukaemia, asthma or obesity as an adult. Oh: and imagine it was free. The “drug” exists. It is called breast milk.”

“How do we change that [poor breastfeeding rates]? For clues, look at the country where breastfeeding rates are still 90 per cent at six months: Norway. They give mothers a year off with 80 per cent pay.”
