What people are saying about Maureen Minchin’s new book, Milk Matters: Infant feeding & immune disorder
Professor Mary Renfrew FRSE, Director, Mother and Infant Research Unit; Deputy Dean: Research, University of Dundee; Director, Scottish Improvement Science Collaborating Centre
Milk Matters is a work of huge vision, based in extensive knowledge and understanding, yet it is easy to read and understand without specialist technical knowledge… A book to change the world, and people’s understanding of it.
James Akré, WHO Nutrition (1980–2004)
This is an important book, as relevant to gastroenterologists and genomic researchers as it is to unhappy parents of distressed babies.
Professor Roger V Short AM ScD FAA FRS
I have read this book from cover to cover. It is truly amazing. I learned something on virtually every page! In a sentence, I think this book will ultimately bring about the demise of the infant formula industry.
But is anyone in the media brave enough to deal with the questions my book raises? You can hear me talking about the book here.
