“When it comes to breastfeeding the ideal of choice verses the illusion of choice are two very different things,” argues Kimberly Seals Allers when talking about her new book, “The Big Let Down: How Medicine, Big Business and Feminism Undermine Breastfeeding.”

In this edition of The Secret Ingredient, with Raj Patel, Tom Philpott, and Rebecca McInroy, Allers makes the distinction between choices and options, and illustrates the confounding paradoxes when it comes to babies, mothers and health.
