Baby And Pet Feeding-100% Complete Snafus
Isn't it interesting that we would subject helpless animals and infants to that which we ourselves would never do: We would never eat only one food at every meal.
Thankfully, moms today are starting to recognize that their breasts are there for more than just adornment.
Baby milk formulas are just another of the post-World War II consumer age gadgets. Back then, blossoming science seemed to be able to solve virtually any problem and perform herculean feats, like putting men on the moon. Surely it would not be a big deal to create a convenient meal in a bottle for infants and free mothers of the nursing "burden."
Well, not only were "100% complete" nursing formulas created, they were practically mandated by the medical community. This modern breast-in-a-bottle marvel was also taken abroad to the third world and promoted by bribed physicians and nurses.
Age-old cultural norms of exclusive and extended breast feeding were disrupted by extensive advertising and persuasion in infant formula funded hospitals to convert to the new, modern, sterile western way. Primitive mothers in awe of modernity were sent home with a limited free supply of formula. But when that ran out, the mother's milk had dried up and the families were unable to afford more formula. The result: millions of third world babies died every year from this and the lack of adequate refrigeration, sterilization, and clean water supplies to mix and store formulas.
This is not to mention the fact that "100% complete" infant formulas aren't. There are many nutritional problems, such as vitamin, mineral, amino acid, and, most importantly, essential fatty acid imbalances. Such inadequacy is to be expected since our knowledge of nutrition is incomplete, not "100% Complete."
Nestle was particularly aggressive with their marketing of infant formulas through gigantic giveaways (getting them "hooked"), medical promotions, "education," and bribes. They were boycotted worldwide in 1977 due to these unethical practices.
Good for them. They are a giant step ahead of the pet food regulatory agencies that not only nod to exclusively fed "100% complete" pet foods, but, in effect, mandate them through label regulations.
Singularly fed processed pet foods are just as synthetic and just as potentially disastrous as baby formulas. Here is the WHO International Code of Marketing of Breast Milk Substitutes. Following that is an analogous one for pet foods that should be enforced, but is not:
1. No advertising of breast milk substitutes.
2. No free samples to mothers.
3. No promotion of products through health care facilities.
4. No company mother craft nurses to advise mothers.
5. No gifts or personal samples to health workers.
6. No words or pictures idealizing artificial feeding, including pictures of infants, on the labels of the products.
7. Information to health workers should be scientific and factual.
8. All information on artificial feeding, including the labels, should explain the benefits of breast-feeding and the costs and hazards associated with artificial feeding.
9. Unsuitable products, such as sweetened condensed milk, should not be promoted for babies.
Here would be the analogous processed pet food code by corresponding number:
1. No advertising of exclusively fed processed pet foods (EFPPF).
2. No free samples of EFPPF to pet owners.
3. No promotion of EFPPF through veterinary clinics.
4. No EFPPF company sales people to advise pet owners.
5. No gifts or personal samples of EFPPF to veterinarians, staff or veterinary colleges.
6. No words or pictures idealizing EFPPF, or pictures of animals on the products.
7. Information to veterinarians should be factual and scientific.
8. All information on EFPPFs, including labels, should explain the benefits of fresh, raw, natural feeding and the costs and hazards of artificial EFPPF feeding.
9. Unsuitable products containing predominantly food fractions and additives should not be promoted for animals.
In spite of WHO's Code, one to two million children around the world lose their lives each year due to artificial feeding. Violators of the code include Nestle, Gerber, Mead Johnson, Wyeth and others. Some even try to drum up sales by suggesting that breast feeding may transmit HIV.
Disease and death from exclusively feeding processed foods to pets occurs as well. However, there are no WHO restrictions in the pet food industry for companies to skirt around. On the contrary, regulators mandate that pet foods claim "complete and balanced."
We pay a heavy price for permitting our world to be one where reason does not rule.

I long ago came to realize that the most worthy role of any doctor is to teach people how not to need them. This led me away from practice where treating symptoms is the primary tool and a misinformed public has come to expect magic bullet cures. But no disease is ever caused by the lack of a drug, and no treatment—save that for trauma or defect—ever improves an organism. Medical intervention is, in fact, now the number one cause of death and suffering in our modern world.
Illness, in large part, comes from wrong thinking. Health requires an open-minded, fact-based philosophy of life and an ambition to make yourself the best you can be. Thoughtlessly following convention and laziness are irreconcilable with health.
Wellness requires a deep respect for the great unknowns of life and the power of natural healing forces. Pretending that we can command nature and that the body is a mere machine that can be manipulated with impunity by "experts" is an illusion of both professionals and the public.
So it is my hope that this newsletter will help you to take control of your own health destiny, trust the healing powers within and in nature, and understand that ultimately wellbeing is about what you do to yourself, not what someone else can do to you.
