Someone here mentioned a link to Juvenile Diabities and baby formula....so I did a research and here are a few of the different links that I have found.

None at the moment because none are studies, they are just articles about studies or ones that are going to be happening. The problem with articles on studies is that many times (on either side of the arguement) authors will pick and choose only those quotes that will prove their points. They VERY often ignore other parts of the studies and/or take only the worst case statistic to publish in their article.

I will be very interested to see the 10 year trial that Sick Kids here in Toronto and the many, many children's hospitals in the US are conducting. But that won't be available for years to come. I think the results of that study will be very interesting given that there will very likely be a large sample size.

Of course none of this will ease the mind of my girlfriend who nursed her son for a year, delayed solids until 6 months and then he was diagnosed with Type I diabetes at 6 years of age. Sometimes there is nothing you can do to prevent a disease from happening.

I am very interested in the completion of that study as well.

i'm v. wary of the TRIGR study b/c of the conflict of interest of MJ.

I have a question for you...how else do you think these people could obtain that sort of money in order to fund some a HUGE research plan?
