Those who enjoy reading scientific papers, lol, read this. I just saw this article and thought it was interesting, even though, I have only skimmed it.
There seems to be a link between formula use in infants and autism (maybe it is not vaccines after all). What are your thoughts?
I agree- the samping method seems very inaccurate. And did you see the part about how the "results were validated" by home videos? Really?
They'd have to recreate the study (with a MUCH better sampling method, mind you) and get similar results quite a few more times before I would begin to accept this, however. Tbh, this entire study seems due to the media's growing campaign. And I think it's complete bullsh*t.
I think it's these types of threads that divide the forums, this is supposed to be a section to support other breastfeeding moms, answer questions...not put down formula. I'm sure that's not your intent but I'm also sure it will be taken that way
Doesn't seem too scientific to me... there are all sorts of theories on autism and what causes it but proper studies need to be done rather than this sort of survey. It also seemed to be liking it more to lac of DHA and not just formula.
