It's today Saturday September 20!<br><br>
If you're in Central North Carolina come to the Carrboro Town Commons from 4 P.M. until dusk.<br><br>
Breast isn't the best option, it's the ONLY option!<br><br>
Here's a lil' bit from Jamie Murphy's "What Every Parent Should Know About Childhood Immunization" on<br><br>
"The Protective Factors in Breastmilk"<br><br>
"Breast milk has proven to inhibit the growth of many bacteria and viruses in laboratory experiments. Antibodies or isoagglutinins have been isolated from breast milk in response to the following disease organisms: tetanus; pertussis; pneumonia; diphtheria; polio virus 1, 2 and 3; mumps; Coxsackie and echo virus; smallpox; and influenza organisms."<br><br>
"The immunoglobulin IgA is referred to as secretory IgA (sIgA) and is somewhat different from the IgA that is produced in serum. The secretory immunoglobulin found in breast milk is thought to be produced in the mammary gland of the mother. SIgA greatly benefits breast-feeding infants because it coats their intestinal tract with "anti-septic paint", thus protecting the infant from bacterial and viral invasions from such pathogens as E. coli, poliovirus, streptococi, staphylococci, and pneumococci."<br><br>
"One of the major reasons for the substantially lower incidence of infant diarrhea in breast-fed babies is the quality of their intestinal flora. In contrast, infants who are reared on cows-milk based formulas have an intestinal flora that is predominately bacteroides, streptococcus faecalis, and E. coli organisms. The gut flora of exclusively breast-fed infants is colonized almost entirely with friendly bacteria: lactobacilli and bifido-bacteria. In 1953, Gyorgy demonstrated that human milk contained a carbohydrate known as the bifidus factor, whcih may encourage the growth of these beneficial organisms. In breast-fed infants, the production of ascetic acid and lactic acid by friendly lactobacillus bacteria lowers the ph (acid-alkaline balance) of the stool, thus providing a suitable acid environment, which prevents the growth of yeasts, shigella, and E. coli bacteria. As a result, breast-fed infants are largely protected from the organisms associated with candida albicans, dysentery, infantile diarrhea, and gastroenteritis."<br><br><br>
Remember that the regular meats we eat are loaded with high-powered antibiotics that can knock out our beneficial intestinal flora, and that the infants "colonization" can only be as good as the mothers.<br><br>
Here's a great probiotic mix:<br><br><a href="http://jarrow.com/products/BabYsJarroDophilus.htm" target="_blank">http://jarrow.com/products/BabYsJarroDophilus.htm</a><br><br>
I culture the Jarro-dophilus mix as a yogurt--- it's delicious.<br><br><br>
Proud papa of a 19 month old breastfeeding boy--- his mama is the Best!<br><br><br>

P.S. It's become clearer to me that the anti-breastfeeding forces in Western Civlization go hand in hand with the pro-vaccination forces.<br><br>
Breastmilk makes vaxes look ridiculous!!
