Stem Cells in Breastmilk!

I just read some cool news about a recent discovery that there appear to be stem cells in breastmilk!

A quote from the article:

“The point is that many mothers see milks as identical – formula milk and breast milk look the same so they must be the same. But we know now that they are quite different and a lot of the effects of breast milk versus formula don’t become apparent for decades. Formula companies have focussed on matching breast milk’s nutritional qualities but formula can never provide the developmental guidance.”

Truly, breastmilk is unmatchable. It seems almost magical 🙂

  1. Well,

    I guess God knew what He was doing when he provided the perfect food for mammal kids. Why humans they can do better than the Creator of humans is beyond me. We should eat as close to nature (i.e. raw foods, eliminate toxins, chemicals, preservatives, and do NOT eat genetically modified foods).

    Our bodies were designed perfectly…but we abuse ourselves and we wonder why our health is not what we want it to be.

    As far as babies go…feed them God’s food–breast milk.


  2. I just watched an Animal Planet show on saving a baby walrus, the care giver made a comment like this… “We don’t know how much of his momma’s milk he got, so we won’t know the long term effects on his health from this.”

    I found that very telling, animal specialists are very aware of the need for animals to nurse. Of course it is important that human babies nurse too.
