Unsurprisingly the suggestion has been received with a mixed response, from the all-embracing to the downright stomach-churned. Members can read that feature by clicking here.

Anyway, an article in today’s press reports on human breast milk being prescribed to treat some serious illnesses. And it’s happening in the US, notably with adult cancer patients.

When is breast best?
