Cow milk protects babies from allergy?

This new study headed by Professor Yitzhak Katz, Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv has just upset the theories of some scholars that it is appropriate to feed newborns mainly or exclusively with breast milk during their first days to first months of life.

Based on 13,019 cases of children with different dietary history, research shows that those who drank cow milk during their first days of their life are 19 times more protected than those that began after 15 days. It suggests that cow milk is also in favor of the immune system if it is given within 15 days after birth. It would eliminate the risk in children with allergies to cow's milk proteins, a widespread food allergy.

Remember though, that the WHO recommends exclusive breastfeeding for six months, then the gradual introduction of other foods, and stresses that the main food must remain breast milk until at least one year. The composition of breast milk nurtures the immune system and brain activity in infants.
