    Some correlation in these articles and very little causation. In fact, there is lots of speculation and even some support for formula:

    Article 1’s hypothesis is a huge stretch and even suggests that the results are marginal – the differences in cholesterol (3mg/dl – hdls only!?) & BMI are very miniscule frankly and ignore many other genetic, social and environmental factors over 40+ years (since the avg age of the participants was 41):

    “breastfed offspring had higher average HDL cholesterol levels in adulthood: 56.6 mg/dL vs. 53.7 mg/dL for the bottle-fed participants (though this was not significantly different once participant BMI was considered in later analysis)”

    Article 2 suggests breastfeeding might be unhealthy for babies of asthmatic mothers:

    “Longer breastfeeding in infancy is associated with improved lung function in later childhood, with minimal effects on airflow in children of non-asthmatic mothers,” wrote Theresa W. Guilbert, M.D., “However, longer breastfeeding in children of mother with asthma demonstrates no improved lung growth and significant decrease in airflows later in life.”

    Article 3 suggests supplementing breastfeeding with hypoallergenic formula:

    “He offered a number of recommendations for children at high risk of allergic diseases while breast-feeding: * Mothers should supplement breast-feeding with a hypoallergenic formula (extensively or partially hydrolyzed)”

    My daughter, my brothers’ 3 children, & several friends kids are all normal, healthy, athletic kids with no adverse illnesses, allergies or other effects from prescribed formula.

    That said, I believe that breastfeeding is natural and should be the preferred method whenever possible.
