View Full Version : Study Connects Sids & Cows Milk
Not sure if we should start to worry about this - I was wondering why the A2 milk is now so popular, pretty scary stuff for a lot of mums if found to be true
while I love the fact that there are ongoing studies into SIDS and its cause ... its the ending of the article that I believe sums it up ..
"Australian doctors warned that the study was not sophisticated or big enough to draw conclusions and said parents did not need to act on the study.
Dr Chris Seton, a specialist at the sleep investigation and respiratory support unit at the Children's Hospital at Westmead in Sydney, said more research was required, but the research suggested that more of the peptide was getting into the brainstems of the ''near-miss'' babies because they had less of the DPPIV enzyme to break it down.
Dr Seton said the study reinforced the fact that breastfed infants were known to have about half the risk of SIDS compared to formula-fed babies.
But of all known risk factors for SIDS, he said baby formula was the least dangerous, with exposure to cigarette smoke the greatest risk factor now that most parents knew babies should sleep on their backs."
