Breast-feeding longer boosts baby's IQ later in life, study says

15 hrs ago
Next time you wonder how your friends or colleagues got so darned smart, consider this: It may have something to do with how long they were breast-fed. A new study from Harvard University shows that children who are breast-fed longer have higher IQs than formula-fed kids, and the longer and more exclusively kids are given breast milk, the better. Researchers are careful to say it's an association, not causation, but each month the child was breast-fed exclusively in the first six months, he or she gained four-fifths of a point in verbal IQ by age 7. "It’s not like you get an early advantage that falls away. Their study showed that the advantage seems to persist,” said Sean Deoni, head of Brown University's Advanced Baby Imaging Lab. [Source]

Kemetstry I believe this study is true. When I was girl mothers breast fed their children, there was not the tinned stuff that mothers give their children today. I breastfed my three sons until they were nine months and they are smart...Lol. They are those who may be smarter than they, but they have done well.

One other thing breast fed babies tend not to have colds, allergies and other things that children who are raised on formula have. Check the children in Africa mothers breast feed them which is natural, when the baby food companies got there the children suffered from all kinds of diseases including those which came as a result of dirty feeding bottles. The breast is the best.

Why would ANYONE be surprised, in that isn’t it obvious that nothing we can create in a laboratory or from another animal could/ever would match the benefits to a baby’s general health, immune system and IQ of the milk that their healthy mother would produce?


In the Spirit of Sankofa,


... No, its not nearly that obvious, unless one is simply not aware:





Colostrum (also known colloquially as beestings,[1]bisnings[2] orfirst milk) is a form of milk produced by the mammary glands of mammals (including humans) in late pregnancy. Most species will generate colostrum just prior to giving birth. Colostrum contains antibodies to protect the newborn against disease, as well as being lower in fat[3] and higher in protein than ordinary milk.



Human colostrum vs breastmilk.
On the left is colostrum expressed on day 4 of lactation, and on the right is breastmilk expressed on day 8. Colostrum often has a yellow hue compared to breastmilk.




Bovine colostrum from pasture-fed cows containsimmunoglobulins specific to many human pathogens, including Escherichia coli, Cryptosporidium parvum, Shigella flexneri, Salmonella, Staphylococcus,[28] and rotavirus(which causes diarrhea in infants). Before the development of antibiotics, colostrum was the main source of immunoglobulins used to fight infections. In fact, when Albert Sabin made his first oral vaccine against polio, the immunoglobulin he used came from bovine colostrum.[29] When antibiotics began to appear, interest in colostrum waned, but, now that antibiotic-resistant strains of pathogens have developed, interest is once again returning to natural alternatives to antibiotics, namely, colostrum.[30]
