I saw this comment in response to an article on cross nursing [I'll look for the link]
Breast milk is a body fluid. Would you ride a guy without wrapping it up? Would you swallow? I work in health care and let me tell you infectious diseases are everywhere and people you would never dream to be infected by Hep A, B or C, HIV, HTLV or something else are. Even your family members can be infected. Also, the whole population is doing illegal drugs, especially marijuana. All of those pass into breast milk. Many women take antidepressants and those pass into breast milk. What one woman thinks is ok for her baby or she doesn't care about she would happily sell or trade her surplus milk to you. She doesn't care and lots of people think this way. Breast milk is very healthy but buying untested milk is like riding bareback. You might do it but what about your baby?
Wow. The bias of the poster just oozes out. Don't you think?
S/he equates breastfeeding to sex. S/he claims to be an authority (healthcare). S/he highlights antidepressants as a noteworthy risk (erroneously).
