|and possibly for the World Health Organization, which currently recommends that a woman switch from breast to bottle at the three-to-five month period.|

I'm no expert-but wouldn't an EBF babe be exposed to milk protein through his mother's milk? Assuming she consumed dairy products.

"The findings of this study are not meant to discourage breastfeeding, but rather to encourage early complementary feeding with cow’s milk along with breastfeeding to promote oral tolerance."
My thoughts on the subject are this: formula has only been around 100 years or so. Food allergies are at an all time high and are much more severe than even a generation ago (anectodal, again, not wanting to look up studies, but I didn't know a *single* person with a life threating food allergy, now there are 3-4 in my daughter's class and more throughout her school). Given that we, as humans, have been around MUCH longer than the past 100 years leads me to believe that EBF is probably sufficient to help prevent these allergies moreso than formula and/or it's something ELSE in our diets that is causing the allergies.
So, nothing scientific, just some logical deduction.
