So I've heard the infant cereal/diabetes link, but this is a new one on me. Isn't that kind of a direct correlation to juvenile diabetes (I think juvenile diabetes is just another name for type 1)?

Quote:
Diabetes: Proteins found in cow's milk may play a role in the development of type 1 diabetes (formerly called juvenile or insulin-dependent diabetes). That's one reason why cow's milk isn't recommended for infants.(5) Later in life, the amount of protein in the diet doesn't seem to adversely affect the development of type 2 (adult-onset) diabetes, although research in this area is ongoing.

oops- got a phone call, I'll come back and read some more soon.

I read about that a while back. The book Healthy Eating for Life for Children mentions an AAP study that links animal protien to diabetes. I'll have to try to dig out the book later, but I think the gist of it was that the baby's body sees meat proteins and other animals' milk proteins as foreign substances and builds antibodies to fight them. Those antibodies can kill the body's own insulin-producing cells.

Scary stuff.

Okay... I'll add to my post. LOL I was thinking that means that formula directly contributes to juvenile diabetes then, right? I wonder if there has been any studies that show a link to the rise of type 1 diabetes in correlation to the introduction of "formula". I wonder if there's a link to the kind (type 2?) of diabetes that adults get?

I also wonder if there is a rise in the # of KIDS who get type 2 related to formula...

I know more and more KIDS are getting type 2 due to lack of exercise and obesity and poor nutritional choices and I wonder if formula also plays a role

My fiance comes home from a re-licensure class (chiro) and he says that he's a bit more convinced about my non-vaxing issues (i'd rather delay then do it all at once, he hears that as non-vaxing- go figure) because:

A specific Vax and Cow's Milk contribute to Type 1 diabetes. So, this information is also being distributed to Drs. as well and media.

Great links, thank you Jane! I liked this quote:
Quote:
CONCLUSIONS: The results of this study indicate that breastfeeding within the first 4 months of life prevents the generation of antibody response to bovine beta-casein despite the mothers' consumption of cow's milk during the breastfeeding period. These findings may have relevance for disease prevention. Copyright 2000 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
