Do you believe that breast feeding makes a baby smarter and healthier?
smarter; i don't think so ... healthier and able to fight off diseases without medication; yes.
I think a mother's milk is the best nutrition for a baby. It's definitely healthier than formula. As far as making a baby smarter, it would make sense that the baby is getting better nutrition to feed their minds. There would be no way to really test this hypothesis though.
Yes and Yes. BUT it depends on the nutrition the mother is giving herself as well! If the mother isn't eating well and is feeding herself fast food, and other processed junk foods, then that is exactly the kind of nutrition the baby will get.
I do think it plays a part in intellect as well as health. I have noticed that kids who have been breastfed tend to have longer attention spans then formula fed children and I work in a day care.
Smarter. No. Healthier yes in a way due to nutrients in breast milk and immunity to things as long as the mum is sensible in her lifestyle and diet too. Remembering a portion of mums diet flows through.

Breast feeding in public bans?What do you think about breast feeding bans? I think mothers should cover themselves, but not be banned or forced to go to restrooms (gross-would you want to eat sitting on a public toilet?)
