Breast milk was yesterday: How US delegates tried to prevent a WHO resolution

Breast milk is considered to be especially healthy for new earthlings. Hundreds of delegates to the UN World Health Organization also shared this view. Not so, the angry US delegates. After all, alternative products are a multi-billion dollar business.

Even common sense suggests that breast milk is a special elixir that provides newborns with all the essential nutrients and thus provides an optimal start in life. However, in the past few decades, one investigation has gone one step further to scientifically substantiate this supposedly simple fact.

In the spring, a meeting of the UN World Health Assembly was now about integrating the relevant findings into a resolution. Thus, the health-promoting content of breastmilk is irreplaceable and Member States should therefore take measures to “limit” misleading campaigns for substitute products. But hundreds of delegates made the bill without the US ambassadors.

To the astonishment of the assembled international community, the US officials resisted the supposedly consensual resolution and tried to dilute for them to far-reaching passages of the resolution text. For example, Washington’s embassadors were bothered by governments being called to “protect, nurture and support breastfeeding.” Another passage that called for “restricting the promotion of food products, many of which experts say may have adverse effects on young children,” tasted the US delegate as well.

But the change request was rejected, and let the US ambassadors take special measures to give their request the necessary emphasis. As the New York Times reports, citing diplomats and government officials present, it was time to open the economic toolbox and tighten the thumbscrews. It was one of the first to hit the small South American state of Ecuador. Quito had assumed to accept the resolution.

“Bluntly” the South Americans were threatened with “unleashing economic punitive measures and withdrawing substantial military aid.” Ecuador promptly bowed to the US dictate.

Fearing US retaliation, more than a dozen participants in the UN conference who reproduced the questionable process asked for anonymity. According to their accounts, poor African and Latin American states were targeted by similar measures to drive a wedge between the delegates.

“We were stunned, horrified and deeply sad,” said the director of the British advocacy Baby Milk Action Patti Rundall, the general mood again.

What was going on was synonymous with blackmail. The US took the world hostage and tried to overturn nearly 40 years of consensus on the best way to improve the health of infants and toddlers, “Rundall said.

That the US delegates ultimately failed, the New York Times back to the following circumstance:

> "In the end, the US efforts were largely unsuccessful. It was the Russians who came out in the end to implement the measure [Resolution] - and the US did not threaten them. " 

The US Department of State therefore declined to comment on the events. The Department of Health and Human Services, the lead agency in an effort to amend the resolution, sought to explain the decision to challenge the text of the resolution. However, the threats to Ecuador were not involved. Especially the interests of mothers were therefore in mind.

The original resolution included unnecessary obstacles for mothers, with the desire to feed their children. For various reasons, not all women are able to breastfeed. These women should have the choice and access to alternatives for their babies’ health and should not be stigmatized for the way they are able to do so, “a spokesperson endeavored to explain the US position.

However, even though lobbyists from the baby food industry attended the meeting in Geneva, there was no evidence that they played a role in Washington’s “strong arm tactics”.

The $ 70 billion [baby food] industry, dominated by a handful of American and European companies, has seen a decline in sales in affluent countries over the last few years as more and more women opt for breastfeeding, "says author Andrew Jacobs the connections. 

Nonetheless, global industry sales should increase by 4 percent in 2018. This would be mainly due to growth in the developing countries, is deeply concerned by the general US behavior:

It makes everyone very nervous because if you can not [even] agree on health multilateralism then what multilateralism? " 

According to a Russian delegate, the adoption of the Breast Milk Resolution was a matter of principle:

> We're not trying to be heroes here, but we think it's wrong for a big country to try to push around very small countries, especially on a topic that is really important to the rest of the world. " 

According to the anonymous delegate, the United States refrains from directly pressurizing Moscow to refrain from the resolution. But the US delegation had tried to “cripple” the other participants through procedural maneuvers in a series of sessions that lasted for an unusually long period of two days.

In the end without success. The final resolution retained most of the original wording. However, the US negotiators were able to remove from the paper the wording that called for the “technical support of WHO member states for suggesting the inappropriate promotion of food for infants and toddlers”.

Here is the link to the original article in German:
https://deutsch.rt.com/international/72678-muttermilch-war-gestern-wie-us/

The background is very easy:

The more and longer the mothers feed their children with breast milk, the more they lose profit.

I would really like to hear a statement of the Qanon movement to this fact.

Best regards and I’m curious about your comments, too.
Have a wonderful day

💥 Pigzbe – A digital Children Wallet – Piggy Bank for Tokens – My Alarm Clock is Ringing 💥 — Steemit

A Token Piggy Bank (Wallet) for our Children? Sunday morning, wake up, drink coffee, check mails, Steemit… by zanoni

Source: 💥 Pigzbe – A digital Children Wallet – Piggy Bank for Tokens – My Alarm Clock is Ringing 💥 — Steemit

💥After I saw the entry to their website, screenshot above, my inner alarm clock started ringing, it was a very loud ring!💥

About what pigzbe is, we don’t have to talk much, it’s a token wallet for kids (they offer a wallet for adults, too)

But!

What we have to talk about is :

Do we really want our children invest their pocket money in tokens?

In a high volatile, risky cryptocurrency?

With no security for the value?

The more I think about it, the more I get shocked…..

Will this be our new Cryptocurrency World? For me, this sounds much more like a project of the so called:

NEW WORLD ORDER

It reminds me very strong on a project of the freemasons in the US what I read some years ago, the Freemason Chip Programm for children:

Please tell me your thoughts…

Erawan Waterfall and Nationalpark – อุทยานแห่งชาติเอราวัณ

is located about 70km in the northwest of Kanchanaburi. There is bus shuttle from the Kanchanaburi bus terminal to Erawan for a cheap price, so you can concentrate all your senses to the absolutely stunning nature during the trip to Erawan.
Wiki has a quite good descrition about this famous National Park:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erawan_National_Park
After 1 hour in the bus I arrived at Erawan and took a look into the information center at the entrance to the park.

The higher you walk, the more difficult it becomes, but still quite easy for walking until to the top.

along the way to the top there are resting areas with toilets and coffee shops, park rangers are taking care about the customers that nobody get lost and nobody get beaten from the wild monkeys.

On the way there are also some viewing points where you can take a look at this amazing jungle area around Erawan National Park.
