Twitter Web App : It's frankly much more complicated than the way it's being portrayed by a lot of people with political agendas. In many parts of the country, there aren't shortages. The biggest emergency is for kids and adults who rely on specialty formulas: politico.com/news/2022/05/0…

Twitter for iPhone : The baby formula shortage reveals an amazing secret oligopoly:
- 3 American companies control over 90% of the mkt
- hugely restrictive regulations (thanks to big $ lobbying) prohibit foreign formulas

Name another industry/sector/product like this

Twitter Web App : Formula is one of the single most important inventions humans have produced. Babies were not “fine before formula”. They literally just died. It’s not a luxury. It’s terrifying that there’s a shortage.

Twitter Web App : Every tweet about the formula shortage has one asshole dude: “just breastfeed?” I remember the first time my baby drank formula at 3 days old. My milk hadn’t come in. He was starving. He gulped 4oz and finally stopped screaming after 2 days and slept. I sobbed with happiness.
