  • Abstract: Although controversial, exclusive breast milk feeding was shown to exert a protective effect in preventing type 1 diabetes. In contrast, an early introduction of cow's milk‐based formula in young infants may enhance the risk of disease, especially in genetically susceptible children, presumably by an increase of intestinal permeability to macromolecules such as bovine serum albumin and β‐casein, which may arouse autoimmunity. We have shown that human milk contains insulin in… CONTINUE READING
