Wow. You wonder how our supposedly "scientific" age can get it so wrong so long, except that when you know that corporate profits are behind it you no longer wonder. NOTHING could be better for a human baby than a human mother's milk, and that speaks only of nutrition for genetic potential, and not of the importance of cuddling & kissing and loving on that baby. Yet millions of American mothers were guilt-manipulated into bottle feeding, and millions more poor 3rd world mothers.
Worse yet, on substitute, soy milk, contains phytoestrogens that suppress baby boys' sexual development.
Any cattle husbandman from 50 years ago or today on the cutting edge of the New Agriculture (low on inputs, high on nature) could have told you. You want mama cows with HIGH milk fat content and high milk output so that calf gets the food he needs to maximize his genetic potential. You may be a beef farmer, but underneath it all you're a dairyman. And that calf needs to STAY on that mama as long as possible to maximize that first growth. Humans are not bovines, but they are mammals, with the same needs.
I thank God for science and the advances in human health & prosperity in the last 100 years, but I have no time at all for Junk Science that promotes political agendas or corporate profits or fancies itself wiser than creation & the Creator.
