In Response To: breastfeeding (Ed Cordeiro)
Is's a fact. Breastfed children suffer far fewer food intolerances than children fed alternatively. Many mothers have found that by delaying the introduction of solid foods until 1 year or later, their children avoid suffering from food intollerances that have been in the family for generations.
My breastfeeding question concerns the immune system. Given that the human immune system is not fully developed until the 7 years of age, the child depends heavily upon antobodies received from the breast. It has been shown that the breast milk of nutitionally deprived women is as nutritious as the breast milk of women who enjoy a nutitianally complete diet. But, how does the anitbody content of a healthy mother's milk compare to with the antibody content of breastmilk from a mother with a weakened immune system?
Please note that I am not questioning that breastmilk is ALWAYS superior to formula. Even fewer or weaker antibodies are better than no anitibodies.
