    Hope that made sense
    Thank you. Very interesting.

I would assume they would be more likely to be conscientious about the process than the average joe. I can't imagine going to all that trouble if you didn't give a toot.
    Oh, I totally agree. I would assume that milk banks would have very good screening programs, especially considering they are generally involved in feeding premmie bubs. Surely they would have to have pretty stringent quality controls!

    I'm not being smart, just genuinely interested as I've always wondered about this.
    Isn't that the same with cows milk though which I'm assuming most formulas are based on? I'm no veterinarian but I've always thought cows milk to be the perfect nutrition for baby cows rather than designed to grow baby humans.

    Don't get me wrong, I loves me a milkshake! But logic tells me that human milk from another mother is probably more suited for baby humans than cows milk is if we are getting technical about it.

    But formula isn't just cows milk it's a lot more complex than that - it may be synthesized but its a heck of a lot closet to b milk than cows milk

    Oh I know, I just took it upon myself to research exactly what's in it just responding to the idea that the idiosyncratic properties of a mothers milk make it less suitable for other babies. I imagine the same goes from cow to cow let alone when we cross species.

    I personally have sleepless nights when I think that people rely on a company /companies that have been proven to be "evil" to feed their children. Babies in China dying from tainted formula...the echo effect here and in other countries are the limits being placed on the amount of formula you can buy, as a black market has erupted. What would you do if you just can't get to that precious can..stranded in a broken down car, trapped on a roof in a flood. The UN has a massive project underway to get Mothers in developing countries to get babies back on bm, and off of the formula. Because it isn't safe.In those regards, the companies are purely evil...risking the lives of babies for a profit...probably the vilest thing a human being can.do.

    You loose sleep over it? I hope that's an exaggeration. Very extremist attitude. What would I do in that same situation with my 2 year old if I couldn't get to the fridge to make him a sandwich?
