As in you got infant formula from birth as a baby? Its not a common topic if you don't have kids but with all these breast is best studies etc its as though people who were breastfed are superior healthwise compared to those who were not, its as though breast milk is magic lol. For example yesterday I found this on the BBC news website.http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/7715261.stm
Not only this but adults who were breastfed are said to have lower cholesterol, lower risk of cancer, lower risk of multiple sclerosis, heart disease, depression.. a longer life you name it. Im no good at accurately interpreting research but those who were not breastfed are you bothered/worried by this? Or do you put it down to speculation? Do you think you would have been better/stronger/healthier had you been breast fed? Before anyone says 'I wasn't breastfed and am fine' thats not the issue, its the idea that you would have been healthier. Thought it would be interesting as people don't seem to care how they were fed as a baby yet there is all this evidence..
I'm not worried, healthwise i seem to take after my dad, i have little permanant cough. I don't get ill lots but when i do i am really ill, i do get the occasional cold but it doesn't stop me doing things.Last edited by hippieglitter; 11-11-2008 at 16:22.
