Breastfeeding (Natural immunisation) & Bottlefeeding
"Breastfeeding of the human primate for 2.5 years or greater is essential to optimize the health benefits (biological and psychosocial) of breastfeeding for child and mother."---James W. Prescott, Ph.D.
[6.8% of American mothers are breastfeeding at 12 months; 2.7% are
breastfeeding at 24 months; and only 1% at 30 months or more. Editors last 2 unvaccinated kids: last one was breastfed for 3 1/2 years
(solids first at 2 years), one before breastfed for 2 1/2 (solids first at 11
months). Worldwide, the average age of weaning is somewhere around 3 to 4
years, minimum 2.5 years is the recommendation (Prescott).
This knowledge has been suppressed 1, Allopathy Inc turns a 'blind eye' (and receives money from the makers) to its dangers, just giving the dangers lip service, as bottle feeding is the main cause of child illness after vaccination. Not just the physical health benefits, equally important is the mental and emotional health the child gets from extended breastfeeding due to proper bonding.]

James W. Prescott, Ph.D. Letter to Dr.Duane Alexander, Director, NICHD.
Letter of 28 October 2005 that summarizes the minimum nutritional requirements of the essential amino acids as described in The Merck Manual, 15th Ed (1987) and 17 Ed (1999-2005) for infants, children and adults and which highlights the increased amino acid requirements for Tryptophan (293% increase) and Tyrosine/Phenylalanine (478% increase) that is not reflected in changes in commercial infant formula to reflect these revised standards; additional cross-cultural data on 65 tribal cultures which document that 86% of cultures that have weaning age of 2.5 years or greater are rated low or absent in suicide; and request for reversal of my wrongful termination. Request to convene an Inter-Federal Agency panel to review documents and initiate biobehavioral and MRI brain scan studies to document impaired brain-behavioral development due to infant formula feeding and impaired maternal-infant/child bonding.
