Was formula created for the exception?

And are the formula companies using a ploy when they say "breast is best"? Alot of the literature I received from formula companies while pg w/ DD#2 talked about how much better BF is for babies, but if you are unable to BF, for ANY reason, their nutritionally complete product is "there for you". Even though they do advertise breast is best, the formula companies don't really seem to encourage a new mom to stick w/ BF through the "rough period". They are quick to flash their product, which is so close to the BM they have just told you is best. They say one thing but in reality they don't want you to BF because their profits go down.
I see alot of finger wagging at moms because they FF, but honestly, shouldn't the formula companies bear as much if not more of the responsability, or am I being too critical of the formula companies? Should formula have been made a prescription drug, given only to the exceptions for which it was originally intended?
