Make Baby Formula Obesity

Health - Infants who drink formula milk was prone to overweight at the start of the age of five years. Research shows that infant weight gain in a shorter time can affect their lives and put them at risk of disease, ranging from heart disease to diabetes.

The review found that healthy infants fed formula enriched in protein, vitamins, and various other nutrients will experience the addition of body fat by 22 to 38 percent when aged five to eight years than those who only consume regular milk bottle.

The British researcher, as quoted by the Daily Mail, believed the babies were consuming excessive calories. They gained weight at the most crucial growth period. Previous research showed that 20 percent of adults who suffer from obesity caused by excess nutrients or have excess weight as an infant.

The mother was never warned to give diwanti-enriched nutrition for children underweight if they can not give milk. Now, the doctors confirmed that "fatten" the baby needs only to those born prematurely.

"This study supports the program with breast milk because babies do not have excess food," said Professor Atul Singhal of the MRC Childhood Nutrition Research Centre at University College London, who led the study.

"And the findings will also be a concern that infant formula manufacturers to further improve their product," he continued.

Singhal and his team studied a small number of newborns in several hospitals in Cambridge, Nottingham, Leicester, and Glasgow. In his research, the scientists or the mother does not know which type of formula consumed by infants, whether standard or special formula that contains a variety of vitamins, protein, and minerals.

In the first study, which followed 299 babies born in 1993 and 1995, milk-milk formula enriched variety of nutrients that are consumed during the nine months.

The second study involved 246 infants born between 2003 and 2005 was stopped early because there is evidence that links between nutrient excess and obesity are found in the first study.

Britain is one country with the lowest breastfeeding rates in Europe with an average of one in three new mothers do not give milk to her child.

Meanwhile, a previous study also suggests that babies who initially formula-fed and then switch to solid foods earlier than recommended, namely six months, will become the fastest-growing child.

Experts believe the relationship between calories ingested and body weight are very strong in infants than in older children. Breastfeeding is believed related to weight more slowly, instead of formula will increase the production of body fat cells so that the baby's weight will increase quickly.
