I have never heard the health risks of formula quantified as a percentage so I was wondering what that might be if someone where to guesstimate that. So my question is what you guys, if you had to guess, think the risk level of formula likely is (percentage wise) minimum for any formula-fed baby getting a significant health issue that they would otherwise not get (or it would be much less serious if they did) if they where BF'ing?
Assume that we are talking only about children who are not premies, , do not live in extreme poverty or a developing country, or where not born with a significant health issue to start with. Is it 90%? 75%? 50%? 25%? 10%? Less then 10%?
What percentage minimum do you think the risk needs to be for formula to be considered to have significant health risks?
If you have an issue with answering this question, I'd like to know what your reason is?
