CONSTIPATE YOUR BABY? (HINT) GOT MILK?
Scientists at the University of Palermo discovered that
constipation symptoms returned to a controlled group of
infants 48 to 72 hours after they were placed on a regimen
of cow's milk proteins. Their determination was that
chronic constipation in infants has an allergenic
pathogenesis. This study was published in the January,
1995 issue of the Journal of Pediatrics.
Researchers at the Department of Clinical Medicine,
University of Tampere, Finland, discovered that diet has a
significant effect on the developing immune system. They
observed that formula fed babies, at the age of 3 months,
were secreting low levels of serum antibodies to bovine
proteins contained in their formula. This critically
significant evidence was published in the August, 1994 issue
of the Journal of Pediatrics, Allergy and Immunology.
How do pediatricians miss these important studies? One
wonders if the dairy industry looks the other way when they
are presented with such evidence. The infant suffers, and
the mother is the last to know why.
SCIENCE IGNORE SYMPTOMS AND CLUES
FDA believes that the above two studies are not possible
because, in theory, these powerful proteins are destroyed by
digestive processes. Message to FDA: Milk proteins survive
digestion. Doctors at the Department of Pediatrics, Odense
University Hospital in Denmark noted that most formula fed
infants developed symptoms of allergic rejection to cow milk
proteins before one month of age. The majority of infants
tested had two or more symptoms. About 50-70 percent
experienced rashes or other skin symptoms, 50-60 percent
gastrointestinal symptoms, and 20-30 percent respiratory
AFTER NOTING THE MILK CONNECTION, SCIENTISTS RECOMMEND:
The recommended therapy for constipation by these
researchers was to avoid cow's milk and milk-based formula.
