I'm beginning to think this is all about population control - kill 'em while they're young and before they can "breed".
It's been a long time since I knew much about infant formula but I surely hope there are many alternatives to Nestle or Mead Johnson products....

Speaking as a former La Leche Leader, this just burns me up. We are aware that some circumstances indicate a necessity for alternatives to breastfeeding. Some moms must use formula as a supplement, and are already unhappy to find themselves in this situation.....Nestle has just made this all so much worse for them and their babies. A boycott is definitely in order.

Wasn't it Nastie (sic) that was promoting formula feeding in 3rd world countries? Where concerned mothers fell for it, and then, long after the mother's milk had dried, found it too expensive to continue formula feeds? Seems it is business as usual for Nastie

The problem here is that if you actually read the study, there is nothing in it that specifically mentions GMO toxicity. The only conclusions actually from the report are for breast feeding vs formula and the effects on intestinal flora. There is actually no mention of the soy et alia formulas actually being tested and proven to be from GMO. There is also the problem that SPI,Soy Protein Isolate, used in the manufacturing of infant formula contains high levels of Aluminum and other chemicals from the processes that produce SPI. There is also no mention that Soy products, GMO or NON-GMO, carry health risks for infants as they contain compounds that inhibit both the absorption and metabolic use of both minerals and proteins need for natural human infant development. Soy products are directly linked to early on set puberty in both boys and girls along with slower muscle and bone development. The fact is that once again "claims" of GMO toxicity and the usual fear mongering there is no proof and the study cited itself does not at any time actually deal with GMO toxins but rather deals with the effects of breast feeding vs formula feeding on intestinal bacteria and the effect that that has on over all health both short and long term.

Frightening, this is typical of the GMO advocates who care little of the seeds of destruction that they leave behind. Babies are vulnerable and should never be exposed to any GMO product.

I try to avoid buying any Nestle product, but you need to be a good label reader. I was surprised recently to find that a company I was familiar with was now owned by Nestle. Read labels carefully!

15 years of repeated boycotts of Nestle and they still don't get it?
