[color=#FF0000]I moved this in the health forum as it is more of a health issue.
People are very upset about this, and with good reason. Female infants in China who have been fed formula have been growing breasts.
According to the official Chinese Daily newspaper, medical tests performed on the babies found levels of estrogens circulating in their bloodstreams that are as high as those found in most adult women. These babies are between four and 15 months old. And the evidence is overwhelming that the milk formula they have been fed is responsible.
Synutra, the company that makes the baby formula consumed by these babies, says it’s not their fault. They insist that “no man-made hormones or any illegal substances were added during the production of the milk powder.”[/quote]
Little known urban joke for this–we call young girls like this “Similac babies”. When I was teaching in the Chicago Public Schools in 2001/2002 I often saw girls in the 1st and 2nd grade almost fully developed. By the time they hit 14, they were really were developed.
Parents on the board, are you concerned about this and what are you doing?
