The Breast is Best

Dr. Weeks’ Comment: Despite professional organizations like the American Academy of Pediatrics selling out and endorsing synthetic baby formula over natural human breast milk, the amazing breast milk is your best option to nourish your infant. Many scientists call breast milk a miracle food – the Breast Milk Cure. And breast feeding helps reduce breast cancer risk in mothers. And breast milk is also anti-inflammatory!

Now we see that breast milk kills pathogens!

So what is wrong with feeling infants commercial synthetic baby formula? Well, aside from the fact that some formulae have measurable amounts toxic rocket fuel in the bottle, read the ingredients!

6 Toxic Ingredients Found in Baby Formula

  • Sucrose. Despite being one of the milder toxins found in formula, there are still many problems with sucrose. … 
  • Soy. … 
  • Artificial DHA and ARA. … 
  • Dioxin. … 
  • Preservatives. … 
  • Synthetic Nutrients.

Cow Whey protein is different from human whey protein and can cause inflammation and malabsorption symptoms and Soy feminizes body with its estrogenic effect on boys) . Also adding DHA to formulae can back fire: “However, intervention studies with term infants that have attempted to improve the DHA supply of infant formula and hence infant development have not yielded consistent results. Some randomized studies have demonstrated improved visual and developmental indices in supplemented over unsupplemented infants, others have failed to demonstrate an effect.” (source)

So the breast is best, but bear in mind that the breast naturally concentrates blood substances up to 10x so if you are smoking, your suckling baby may be exposed to 10x the amount of nicotine which you are inhaling. Same with Round-Up’s glyphosate or DDT or caffeine. So moms’ clean up YOUR diet and reduce your exposure to toxins then ignore the conflict of interest ridden experts and cuddle up with your grateful baby.

Abstract

Human milk lipids provide the infant with energy and essential vitamins, polyunsaturated fatty acids, and bioactive components. Adding complex lipids and milk fat globule membranes to vegetable oil-based infant formula has the potential to enhance infant development and reduce infections. Cholesterol provision with breastfeeding modulates infant sterol metabolism and may induce long-term benefits. Some 98-99% of milk lipids are comprised by triacylglycerols, whose properties depend on incorporated fatty acids. Attention has been devoted to the roles of the long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids docosahexaenoic (DHA) and arachidonic (ARA) acids. Recent studies on gene-diet interaction (Mendelian randomization) show that breastfeeding providing DHA and ARA improves cognitive development and reduces asthma risk at school age particularly in those children with a genetically determined lower activity of DHA and ARA synthesis. It appears prudent to follow the biological model of human milk in the design of infant formula as far as feasible, unless conclusive evidence for the suitability and safety of other choices is available…
