Noone finds this article shocking? It contradicts almost everything else I have heard or read about breastfeeding and it is written by a pediatric specialist at Yale Medical School!
|Should I find the Cell wall info and Email it to him so that he knows that we do absorb antibodies?|

|Our reasoning about the merits of nursing was pretty simple: Humans are closer to humans than they are to cows or soys, so evolution would surely produce a better-fitting product in breast milk than manufacturers have with infant formula, which is made according to recipes based on cow's milk or soy proteins. That reasoning still seems pretty plausible to me. Like most doctors-and the American Academy of Pediatrics, which strongly recommends nursing for the first year of a baby's life-I have a strong suspicion that breast-feeding is preferential. But because it is inherently difficult to do research on humans, especially infants, good data in support of this position are harder to obtain than you'd think. The often-exuberant claims that breast-feeding makes babies smarter, sleeker, and healthier may be right. But we don't really know."|
