A paper that examines breast feeding in so far as its role as a gateway drug (with bonus data on the effect of toast)

LOL! So good.

Just published today at The Science Creative Quarterly. A tongue and cheek research piece looking at how breastfeeding (and the simple act of infants drinking milk) is a more potent gateway drug to cocaine than, say, marijuana.

The most remarkable result is in regard to infant formula and mother’s milk. Though individually each of these substances have been used by a relatively low percentage of cocaine users, compared to the other substances, one must remember that all infants have likely had one or both of these substances. Combined together, 129.8 percent of cocaine users in our sample have had either infant formula and/or mother’s milk—this number of greater than 100 percent because a subset of our sample received both mother’s milk and infant formula because they were ravenous beasts as infants.”
