Check out this Colbert Report with Michael Pollan, the author of In Defense of Food. (I’m sorry that I’m not techno savvy enough to embed this video.) The cool thing is this: Pollan says, “We have been trying to synthesize breast milk for 150 years, and we still don’t know how to do it. And babies on formula don’t do as well as babies on breastmilk, and we don’t know why.” Another interesting thing that Pollan says in his book applies to formula as well as lots of other things that we eat. He describes complex processed foods as “edible foodlike substances”. Whole food is what research shows is good for our bodies and eating whole food starts at birth with breastfeeding.
