Just over half a year ago, the United States made attempts to ensure that a proposal worth forty years of work by the World Health Organization would be shut down. The resolution, with an aim to protect infant health, pushed to prioritize breastfeeding. It advocated for standards like worldwide government restriction on the advertisement of baby food and formula, promotion of access to scientifically supported education on breastfeeding for expecting families, and truthful labeling of baby products. Current health statistics, as founded by the Lancet, support these standards: “Increasing breastfeeding rates around the world to near universal levels could prevent 823,000 annual deaths in children younger than five years and 20,000 annual maternal deaths from breast cancer.” It had majority support from the countries present.
