Good news from the IRS for once

Tax breaks will now be given for breast-feeding supplies, the IRS says. The tax break changes come about in light of a Harvard study done by the Harvard Medical School that stated, "if 90 percent of mothers followed the standard medical advice of feeding infants only breast milk for their first six months, the United States could save $13 billion a year in health care costs and prevent the premature deaths of 900 infants each year from respiratory illness and other infections."
