Historic vote in UK to end pediatric college’s ties to formula

Delegates to the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, Britain’s national pediatrician’s organization, passed a non-binding resolution urging the College to “decline any commercial transactions or any other kind of funding or support” from all companies that market breast milk substitutes. The non-binding resolution passed 66 to 53, as reported by the BMJ on April 28, 2016. See the pdf here, courtesy of Baby Milk Action’s story.
