New studies add insights to infant feeding and obesity issue
Date:4/10/2008

SAN DIEGO (April 9, 2008) On Wednesday, April 9, 2008, a symposium at the American Society for Nutritions annual meeting at Experimental Biology was held in which noted scientists discussed new infant feeding studies that used methodology such as randomized clinical trials (involving breastfeeding promotion) as well as sibling pairs analysis. These studies may offer new insights into possible associations between infant feeding and health outcomes such as obesity.

The symposium, Infant Feeding and the Development of Obesity: What Does the Science Tell Us", sponsored by the International Formula Council (IFC)* and chaired by Linda Adair, Ph.D., professor of nutrition at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, brought together international experts in the field of infant nutrition to present their recent findings.

Featured researchers included David Barker, M.D., Ph.D., professor of clinical epidemiology at the University of Southampton, UK and professor of Cardiovascular in the Department of Medicine at the Oregon Health and Science University, whose soon-to-be published study examines breastfeeding in a large group of sibling pairs that were followed into their late 60s.

This type of study design controls for maternal factors, according to Dr. Barker. Differences in the long-term effects of breast and bottle feeding may reflect differences in the mothers rather than the effects of feeding itself. Maternal factors include maternal health status, maternal care-giving, motherchild interactions or other health-related behaviors of the mother that may interfere with determining the association of infant feeding and health outcomes and the strength of any possible associations.

Other study designs such as the randomized clinical trial on breastfeeding and health outcomes in infants in Belarus recently conducted by Michael Kramer, M.D., a pediatrician and perinatal epidemiologist at McGill University in Montreal, provi
