Breast Feeding and the Biomarkers of Heart Disease

Abstract:I designed an experiment to determine if the unique nutritional contents of breast-milk, compared to formula, would have a beneficial effect on selected biomarkers of atherosclerosis in young adults. I found significant suppression of lipid and inflammatory biomarkers in breast-fed subjects suggesting a long-term protective effect of breast-milk on future heart disease.
