those who were formula fed have not only underdeveloped guts but lower mineral and nutrient reserves. This relays lifelong gut problems, but also nutrient delivery problems, chemical regulation in the brain, autoimmune trouble, and soooo much more. So, my hypothesis, if you were formula fed as an infant if you simply stay away from every ingredient that was in your infant formula, youre probably bound to improve your health. Just a thought…
those breastfed(assuming the mom wasnt some cracked out drug addicted whore..) seem to be those who can eat what they want(beans, nuts, high carbs) and have no problem.
maybe whey protein isnt as bad for someone who was breast fed but one who was formula fed(which whey is usually in) will react badly to whey, same with lactose and dairy. same with msg, carcinogens, lactic acid(and other acids) and even wheat- also, wheat, gluten, oats, rye, milk, lactose, milk protein, milk fats, wheat starch, soy, sometimes fish oils and citric acids, glutamate, yeast. if you started your life with the ingredients in formula youve already f*cked yourself IMO and those will be the same ingredients you need to stay away from. Same goes for Lactose, fructose, glucose, maltodextrose, carbohydrate (corn maltodextrin, modified corn starch ,corn syrup solids), protein (whey, casein, soy protein isolate), fat (soy oil, coconut oil, corn oil, sunflower oil, palm or olein oil*)
I think the difference is just sourcing. manufacturers assume LC-PUFA from boobmilk is the same as LC-PUFA sourced from plant fat, and at this stage in an infants life- obviously the ingredients in LC PUFA from plant sources in formula make NO SENSE whatsoever. I guess your sort of at a loss being formula fed forever then, it prolly also sets you up for neuroendocrine disruptions, arguably personality problems, ADHD, autoimmunity problems, an omega ratio that is beyond repair, low vitamin/mineral status.
so dairy may not be bad for everyone, but for a formula fed offspring(such as myself) it prolly is. Same with a LOT of food/products
I would love to hear anyones thoughts on the idea of removing every ingredient from your formula(or making a guess as to what was in it) and making it the base of YOUR paleo/primal/real food diet.
