"The infant formula industry has contributed to low rates of breastfeeding through various methods of marketing and advertising infant formula." (4)
"Exposure to formula promotion materials increased significantly breast-feeding cessation in the first 2 weeks." (6)
"Additionally, among women with uncertain goals or breast-feeding goals of 12 weeks or less, exclusive, full and overall breast-feeding duration were shortened." (6)
