    From the article “Doctor’s book presents the case against ‘dairy crack'”

When babies nurse, he notes, they're getting dosed with a mild drug: "Milk contains opiates that reward the baby for nursing." [/quote<] Ohh great, the street value of breast milk just skyrocketed.

      The article has it wrong. News just passed their way the other day about the Steve Harvey incident.
