On March 19, 2014, Newsmax Health ran an article that should be read by all mothers with infants, who are considering putting their children on a formula in place of mother’s breast milk.
Here is an excerpt from that article…
Soy based formula should not be given to infants. It is not a healthy substitute for breast milk. . . . soy is associated with thyroid abnormalities and hormonal problems, as well as multiple vitamin and mineral imbalances.
Soy formula contains many harmful substances not found in mother’s milk, including phytates, phytoestrogens, protease inhibitors, allergenic proteins, and aluminum.
Researchers reported that infants fed soy formula ingested a whopping 28 to 47 mg of isoflavones (phytoestrogens) – the estrogen-like compound found in soy.
The researchers wrote, “The daily exposure of infants to isoflavones in soy infant formulas is 5 to 11 [times] higher on a body-weight basis than the same dose in adults.”
It has been estimated that infants fed exclusively soy formula received the estrogen equivalent of five birth control pills per day. . . .
Citing this unnatural concentration of isoflavones, Dr. Blaylock tells us that female toddlers who were fed fed soy formula as infants can (and have) developed pubescent breast buds as young as 2 years of age.
