Famous TV chef Jamie Oliver shared his opinion on the positive benefits of breastfeeding and he’s receiving quite a negative backlash for his comments.
Oliver is reported on LBC as saying, “If you breastfeed for more than six months, women are 50% less likely to get breast cancer. When do you ever hear that? Never. It’s easy, it’s more convenient, it’s more nutritious, it’s better, it’s free.”
Women, breastfeeding and non-breastfeeding, quickly felt angered and responded with passion. One woman shared, “We didn’t know what to do with our nipples until Jamie Oliver…”
Mr. Oliver recently defended himself on Twitter, stating, “I’m not planning on starting a campaign on breastfeeding…”
Oliver, 40, and his wife recently shared the news that they are currently expecting baby #5.
