News that Vexes: Perhaps only in the Philippines?

It's so tiresome to read 'new studies' that reveal Smoking, Stress or Obesity are Bad for you. Yet these studies appear all the time. It's time to take back the newswire from so-called Scientists!

Perhaps only in the Philippines?

It seems that if doctors tell their patients (or they see ads) to use formula instead of breastfeeding - new mothers are "6.4 times more likely to stop breast-feeding babies."

This blockbuster study was published in September, but the results were released only this week - probably because of how truly surprising and unexpected the results were?

Note it took SIX authors to create this study, though they don't publish the names of these genius doctors - longtime readers know we love to publish their names to tell them they've been published in News That Vexes.

All sarcasm aside, the study reports "Not breast-feeding also was associated with a 5.8 times increased risk of all-cause deaths in the first two months of life, with risks elevated up to the second year" We at News That Vexes strongly support breast-feeding.
