Formula-feeding linked to metabolic stress and increased risk of later disease

New evidence from research suggests that infants fed formula, rather than breast milk, experience metabolic stress that could play a part in the long-recognized link between formula-feeding and an increased risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes and other conditions in adult life. The study appears in ACS’ Journal of Proteome Research.

Carolyn Slupsky and colleagues explain that past research showed a link between formula-feeding and a higher risk for chronic diseases later in life. Gaps exist, however, in the scientific understanding of the basis for that link. The scientists turned to rhesus monkeys, stand-ins for human infants in such research, that were formula-fed or breast-fed for data to fill those gaps.

Their analysis of the monkeys’ urine, blood and stool samples identified key differences between formula-fed and breast-fed individuals. It also produced hints that reducing the protein content of infant formula might be beneficial in reducing the metabolic stress in formula-fed infants. “Our findings support the contention that infant feeding practice profoundly influences metabolism in developing infants and may be the link between early feeding and the development of metabolic disease later in life,” the study states.

Intriguing! Especially reducing PROTEIN.

NB I DO have 3 babies who formula-fed, as they were not kept by their birthmothers. I am grateful that formula was developed, for that reason ... but it should NEVER'VE been marketed as superior, or even equal to, breast milk. Ridiculous.

Seems to me this could be very important as the rate of metabolic diseases rises and this generation of formula fed babies is reaching maturity or beyond. I remember when mine were born, the fad of breast feeding was coming back into fashion, but barely. Nowadays, it's not uncommon, but in the late 50's it was not the fashion and just in the 60's that worm turned.

I'm curious, if any of us were nursed? I know I was bottle fed...what about the rest of you?

Bottle fed! 100%

Thankfully I am in the generation now where my babies were breastfed. And for a good long time too. Hope that helps them with both mom and dad having D! Dad was also bottle fed, although he got mom's milk for a few days.

My sister and I both were nursed, and that was in the early 70's. My sister is about 1 of the very few people in my family that doesn't have D, but I do. She & I are also very close in age. We're less than 10 months apart. (Mom was pregnant with me when she went back for her first checkup after having her.) I watch my son (now 7) closely, because D is so strong in our family. I had to bottle feed him (and he hated the taste of it!). I lost most of both breasts when I was 28, due to severe nerve damage that was non-D related. Hopefully he'll turn out okay!

Breast-fed, zero forumla.

I was born about a year after my parents arrived in the US after escaping from Eastern Europe with my sister. Mom went into labor w/ me and by the time she got to the hosp I was ready to come out. Reports of the chaos were hysterical. The doc wasn't there yet, and at the hospital the convo went like this:

Mom: the baby is coming
Nurse: hold it back!
Mom: What?
Nurse: The doctor isn't here - hold it!
Mom: Tell my baby!
Nurse: We have to give you an epidural!
Mom: Why? I'm only having a baby!

Mom was natural all the way -

God bless her, she must be a mighty strong lady!

My dad and his family had to escape from Lithuania way back then, and thankfully made it safely to this country.

I was a bottle fed baby. My twins were breast milk babies up till almost 1 year. my triplets were only breast milk fed for a few months. They could not tolerate the foods I was eating. Twins were the same but for them I completely changed my way of eating. I could not do it emotionally or physically for the trips.

I wonder what the studies will show once these bottle fed babies start having babies. I wonder if it will be cumulative. I heard once the children born to woman who's mother (so the babies grandmother) smoked during pregnancy had more asthma problems.
