Dr. McCullough slams CDC for its reckless guidance on transgender 'chest-feeding' raising questions of any gender re-assigned person male or female using hormones to make milk; how can that be real
by Paul Alexander
mother's milk? have we studied the implications and safety to the baby? we know the milk-inducing hormone can damage the baby's heart, so why do this? McCullough is on the money here!
CDC Guidance on Hormonal Manipulation to Enable Male Breast Feeding Shows Bizarre New Thinking in Public Health
Baby Born to Normal Woman is Ready to be Fed by Her NOT Him--Dr. McCullough on MSCS Media
‘I had the wonderful opportunity to return to MSCS Media Studio and go on the long program with famed podcaster Tommy Keightly. He asked about the new CDC guidance on male breastfeeding.
From CDC: “Can transgender parents who have had breast surgery breastfeed or chestfeed their infants?
Yes. Some transgender parents who have had breast/top surgery may wish to breastfeed, or chestfeed (a term used by some transgender and non-binary parents), their infants. Healthcare providers working with these families should be familiar with medical, emotional, and social aspects of gender transitions to provide optimal family-centered care and meet the nutritional needs of the infant. These families may need help with the following:
Maximizing milk production
Supplementing with pasteurized donor human milk or formula
Medication to induce lactation or avoiding medications that inhibit lactation
Suppressing lactation (for those choosing not to breastfeed or chestfeed)
Finding appropriate lactation management support, peer support, and/or emotional support

This is one of many examples where public health efforts and policy have become bizarre, contorted, and are making a laughing stock of our agencies including the CDC. The CDC should be focused on serving physicians and the community with infectious disease outbreak investigation, new in vitro diagnostics, and data analytics.
This development gives great justification to those who claim they have lost all faith in the CDC. The short video gives my analysis. You decide.
