View Full Version : Can formula cause Allergies? Asthma?
Just thought I would post some info that I found interesting, It might help people hoping to choose which way they will sway.
That is interesting coming from Dr Greene (not a fan here). I would not have expected to see that information on his website. I found that link very interesting.
The benefits of breastmilk and breastfeeding is pulled out often but rarely are the risks of not breastfeeding or the risks of artificial feeding discussed.
The link you provided did say that research in this field was relatively new. I wonder what he meant by relatively new! 1980 seems a bit older than "relatively new!" Check out those risks of artificial feeding research references here (http://www.promom.org/bf_info/risks.htm). You'll have to dig them up at the library though, or find copies online.
The University of Newcastle was also doing a study on cows milk proteins in formula.
There is evidence that the same mechanisms mentioned on that site can contribute to the onset of juvenile diabetes.
They were looking for children of mothers who had juvenile diabetes to take part in the study, by advertising on the radio. They were using normal formula vs a formula where the protein had been broken down.
I din't know if there has been any publication of results yet, though.

No me either that is why I posted it, as I also thought it interesting they put it on their web page. Yes it was interesting they had the reasearch as only new, I've posted that link from PROMOM before and some people said it was irrelevant and told them nothing??? Personally it tells me that there is a huge amount of reasearch being done on the subject of complications assc with artificial infant milk.:)
It probably told them nothing because they didn't take the time to look up the references to find the research!!
I saw that reference page ages ago and am only half way through reading the research. It also takes time to dig them up, and not all of them can be found online.
Holy dooley that is a long list :eek:!!! I can see how it would take some time to get through - just finding them all would be a chore let alone all the reading!
Great resource though.. I've just printed them all off. :)
By the way.. mind if I ask who Dr Greene is and why you're surprised that's on his site? :confused:
