I wonder how they managed to knock on the doors of nearly 100 million new mothers and ask
them if they are breast feeding their babies or not. I heard it was closer to 80%
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

At least I've been there seven times which beats your zero times.
As long as we're pulling numbers out of our ass I'll bet it's closer to 90%

Exactly the answer I expected from Robber.  Then tell me why there are stores in China that sell nothing but baby milk powder and the major supermarkets have aisles dedicated to nothing but milk powder?  China is the largest consumer of milk powder in the world.

About 10 years ago, formula makers in the United States would give free gifts (diaper bags, free formula, coupons for formula, free diapers, etc) to entice parents to formula feed. Studies were completed, and found that the free gift truly did effect a parent's decision on whether they would formula feed or breast feed. Since then, many hospitals have stopped giving out the "free gifts" in an effort to prevent the decision on how to feed their child from being influenced by the formula companies. Many hospitals also offer breast feeding classes months before a child is born to allow the mother to learn as much as possible about breast feeding so she can make an informed decision.
