Wednesday, April 12, 2006Another story on Prolacta.
From the article:
Prolacta will first use its facility to buy donated breast milk from independent milk banks and hospitals across the United States, pasteurise it at its Monrovia plants and sell it back to hospitals to treat very-low-birth-weight babies.
Ok, so explain to me how BUYING milk from milk banks, so that you can pasteurize it yourself and then SELL it back to hospitals will make it more affordable and more available then simply letting the milk banks, which have already collected it for free and already have the pasteurizing machines.
I just don't get it.
Even more so, I just don't get why other people don't get it.
