BED-STUY - Supermodel Gisele Bundchen's latest statement about breast-feeding is stirring up some controversy in Brooklyn.

It's World Breast-Feeding Week and borough organizations are trying to raise awareness. They say that it reduces obesity, infectious disease and protects the immune system of the baby.

Bundchen is also raising awareness, but taking it one step further. The supermodel says, ?It should be a worldwide law for women to breast-feed." While some agree with the supermodel, others say it would be wrong to require women to do something to their bodies or children.
