A Breastfeeding and Culture Moment

I was watching a video on the growing population of elderly worldwide and a comparison of how the elderly are cared for in different countries, when I heard this quote by a young Tunisian man:

"Mothers milk creates an affection between mother and son, and by the grace of god all our mothers have breastfed us. That contact with the breast strengthens the affection." 

In a video completely unrelated to breastfeeding, an interesting perspective on breast milk is presented. Let that be a lesson - if you want your sons to care for you in your old age, breastfeed them! :)

Note: The video was made in 2000, and the rate of breastfeeding has decreased in Tunisia in recent years.
