The Business of Baby

Business of Baby From author Jennifer Margulis, “The Business of Baby,” published by Scribner. An excerpt: “As this book will show you, time and time again corporate profits and private interests trump what is best for moms and babies. The science is consistently ignored, and practices proven to be harmful are continued. Doctors – even though most have the best possible intentions – often unwittingly go along with a broken and sometimes dangerous system.”

From Scribner: “Margulis’ revelations will shock you. Prenatal vitamins contain carcinogenic ingredients; foreskins from circumcised newborns are sold to the beauty and artificial skin industry; and the leading proponent of delayed potty training is a paid spokesperson for Pampers.”
