That's not what you asked for.  You asked for the names of diseases.  You can find supportive facts all over the internet or at your library.


But I didn't find names of diseases in the articles either, just non-specific references to viral and bacterial infection.  I'd hoped that a backing medical journal article might provide names, or statistics that could be examined more critically, but there were none.  I didn't just come up with a new request because I like being demanding - you are seeing something in those articles that I don't see, and I was hoping I might get at it by pressing for something more substantial. 


I'm dropping it - I think this discussion has run its course.

Run it's course? I hope not. Now we should decide which item to tackle first and how to go about making some changes. What good comes of just complaining among ourselves? We need to *do* something to make a difference!

Here are the diseases listed in the first article:


Some studies suggest that infants who are not breastfed have higher rates of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) in the first year of life, and higher rates of type 1 and type 2 diabetes, lymphoma, leukemia, Hodgkin's disease, overweight and obesity, high cholesterol and asthma.

The disease associated with the second article is breast cancer.
