Babies are in fact dying in numerous quantaties due to tactics used primarily by the Nestle corporation
. They offer free powdered milk
to mothers of newborn
children who are not well nourished
and so cannot produce breast milk
which supplies all the needs of the baby
. Once the mothed stops producing her own milk they start to charge to mother for the milk. The problem with this is that the water supply
in the local area is not clean and so when the powdered milk is mixed with water
it becomes disease ridden
This tactic is primarily used in Brazil and other under developed South American countries.
Due to this method of money making many Student Unions in Great Britain have banned Nestle products from Campus. My own school has also implemented a boycott.
