"Small print, information dense and richly referenced volume ... of the current knowledge on this controversial topic. The text covers history, epidemiology, biochemistry, histology, immunology, and molecular biology. ... Lactation consultants depend on advice from public health officials to counsel their clients as well as to care for their own families. They can confidently use the content of this book to pressure officials to formulate recommendations that are more in line with the needs of the general population, including breastfeeding babies."
