comment Transmission of HIV from Mother-to-Child Through Breastfeeding
@AliceD It's fairly efficacious too; transmission rate is somewhere around 20%, if not higher. Only birth (25%?) and blood transfusions (90%) are higher.

comment Transmission of HIV from Mother-to-Child Through Breastfeeding
@AliceD Breastmilk is a really easy way to spread the virus, but part of the problem is that in many sub-Sarahan communities access to clean water is not reliable. Thus, the option frequently becomes a choice between breastfeeding and giving your child HIV, or mixing formula with water and giving your child life-threatening illnesses. Not good.
