Well, that explains it..
Is very obviously a better option than laboratory/factory produced formula, however isn't the healthy mother's milk still No.1/better than anything else by a considerable margin?In the Spirit of Sankofa,
... No, its not nearly that obvious, unless one is simply not aware:
Colostrum (also known colloquially as beestings,bisnings 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 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, 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. 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.
Must be a luck of the draw thing in that doing so made no significant impact on my mother's and 2 elder sisters above average sized mammaries, though I wish I could remember the sensation back then [what about the women NOW who still seem to like it, even when they're not lactating]! ROFLSo that's a yes; it does shrivel the boobs.
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? Is very obviously a better option than laboratory/factory produced formula, however isn't the healthy mother's milk still No.1/better than anything else by a considerable margin?
You were obviously given :Breast-feeding longer boosts baby's IQ later in life, study says

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]
