Formula for Disaster: The Clinically Confirmed Dangers of Breastmilk 'Alternatives'

Formula for Disaster: The Clinically Confirmed Dangers of 'Synthetic' Breastmilk

A growing body of clinical research indicates that formula fed infants have significantly increased risk for the following debilitating and/or life-threatening conditions:

Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia - Allergic Rhinitis - Aluminum Toxicity - Arteriosclerosis - Asthma - Autoimmune Diseases - Bacterial Meningitis - Cancers - Candida Infection - Cardiovascular Disease - Clostridium Infections - Colitis - Diabetes Mellitus: Type 1 - Diarrhea - Ear Infection - Eczema - Enterobacteriaceae Infections - Fluoride Toxicity - Fluorosis - Haemophilus Influenzae Infection - Hodgkin Lymphoma - Hypothyroidism - Immune Dysregulation: TH1/TH2 Imbalance - Infant Mortality - Infant Neurological Disorders - Intestinal Permeability - Iodine Deficiency - Leptin: Elevated Levels - Lymphomas - Mortality: All Cause, Elevated - Necrotising Enterocolitis - Nephrolithiasis - Nephrotoxicity - Obesity - Perchlorate Toxicity - Pneumonia - Respiratory Tract Infections - Salmonella Infections - Sepsis - Sudden Infant Death Syndrome  [view the 1st hand biomedical citations here]

Conversely, the research on the therapeutic value of breastfeeding is also accumulating, with clinical support for the reduction of 70 adverse health conditions indexed on our project alone.

According to a study done in 2004 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, only 11.3% of infants in the U.S. were exclusively breastfed through the first six months of life; in other words, 88.7% of infants were exposed to the effects of synthetic formula during their most critical developmental period. This is undoubtedly a key factor in why the U.S. has the 2nd highest infant mortality rate in the industrialized world. In a 2006 poll of 33 industrialized countries, the US was ranked lower in infant mortality than only one country: Latvia. (State of Our Mothers 2006; Save our Children Foundation). The US infant mortality statistics are also a glaring indication that our infant vaccination policy, the most aggressive in the world, is failing in the real world to live up to its much tauted promises of "saving lives."

There are few who would question the inherent superiority of breast milk over synthetic formula, especially considering that suboptimal breastfeeding is associated with over a million deaths each year worldwide. We know, for instance, that breast milk contains a number of indispensable factors not found in formula and that the breast milk changes continually to suit the changing needs of the baby. Breast milk is a living food with enzymes, immune factors like lactoferrin, lysozyme and secretory IgA, prebiotics and probiotics, coenzymated vitamins, amino-acid bound minerals and hormones like appetite regulating leptin, etc. which are not found in formula. Also, breast milk is even capable of reducing the adverse effects of vaccination (unnaturally elevated antibody titers), which has lead some reseachers to suggest the absurd step of delaying breastfeeding during certain vaccines to prevent them from "interfering" with the shots.

No matter how crafty we are at replacing breast milk with formula, or natural immunity with synthetic "immunizations," we will never outsmart Nature, whose intelligent design is billions of years in the making, and proven successful in a process far more evidence-based than today's multi-billion dollar clinical trials, namely: by the fact that we are here, alive and well.

When it comes to formula, however, it is not simply what it lacks that makes it so dangerous, but what it does contain... sugar, and far worse!

Lactose is the most abundant carbohydrate found in breast milk and is unlike the sucrose (white sugar), maltodextrin, and high fructose corn syrup found in virtually all formulas. The glycemic index of lactose (46) is much lower than that of sucrose (68), maltodextrin (137), and high fructose corn syrup (89), and promotes the growth of beneficial Lactobacilli bacteria such as Acidophilus. Higher glycemic carbohydrates can lead to the growth of putrefying and pathogenic bacteria and yeasts, suppress the immune system and can induce adverse endocrine changes, such as the over-secretion and/or resistance to cortisol, adrenaline, leptin and insulin. Industrially-purified fructose (often from GMO corn, which contains herbicide residues like the endocrine disruptive glyphosate) is perhaps the worst simple carbohydrate, having been tied in the biomedical literature to over 70 adverse health effects.

Allergens with multiple modes of toxicity

According to the FDA, of the 160 foods known to cause allergic reactions, cow's milk and soy are part of the top 8, which are required by law to be listed on labels. Virtually all infant formulas on the market today contain one or more of these common allergens as a main ingredient. The following three foods have insurmountable problems associated with them:

Follow the money. They feed

Follow the money. They feed you the TOXINS. Then mother and father pass on the toxic chemicals through the female egg and sperm. Now the fetus is soaking in a stew of chemicals, including mercury, gasoline byproducts and pesticides. The Environmental Working Group did a tests of 10 samples of the Placenta Cord-blood taken by the American Red Cross. They found an average of 287 contaminants in the blood, including mercury, fire retardants, pesticides and the Teflon chemical PFOA. Now get this “Of the 287 chemicals we detected in umbilical cord-blood, we know that 180 cause cancer in humans or animals, 217 are toxic to the brain and nervous system, and 208 cause birth defects or abnormal development in animal tests,” the report said. Blood tests did not show how the chemicals got into the mothers’ bodies. This does not include vaccines that are loaded with huge amounts of Toxins like Formaldehyde, Aluminum, Polysorbate 80, Mercury, Lead. Never have the cummulative effects of all vaccine ingredients have been tested and they keep on adding more vaccines and feeding the newborn Toxic infant milk. It is all about we the consumers having the knowledge to choose the right foods to feed our selfs and children. Wakeupgethealthydotcom
