Rather worrying, how on earth is this permitted to happen? Mind you Bill Gates oddly enough has a solution, well ain't that just a koinky dink!

The past few years China has also been buying up Australian baby formula and we had our baby formula off the shelves in most shops and kept under strict control after that. But even now there are sometimes gaps on the shelves. 

Billy Boy Gates has a new type of baby franken formula. I sure as hell would never touch if I was a young mum.

 Hmmm, I would still be very hesitant. This is something that a parent must be very careful with, What about possible health implications in the years to come that may as yet be unknown.

 If a mother can feed the baby herself that's good, but many women are unable to for various reasons. Just be informed and be safe and above all, it is no ones business if someone breast feeds, bottle feeds or whatever. Our lives must not be open to public scrutiny at any time. To do such is a gross violation of our human rights.
