Final Breath Before Sudden Death

"I saw few die of hunger; of eating, a hundred thousand."
- Benjamin Franklin

Nobody is there to witness her death struggle. The infant child sucks up the cow's milk-based formula and peacefully drifts to a narcotically induced sleep from the naturally occurring casomorphin in cow's milk.

She never wakes up.

Infant formula alters surfactant protein A (SP-A) and SP-B expression in pulmonary epithelial cells. Chen MG, Atkins CL, Bruce SR, Khan AM, Liu Y, Alcorn JL. Division of Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, Texas.

The scientists observed:

"...SP-B mRNA levels increased 10-fold. Neither soy formula nor non-fat dry milk affected steady-state SP-A and SP-B mRNA levels; suggesting a role of a component of infant formula derived from cow milk."

The researchers concluded:

"These results indicate that infant formula has a direct, dose-dependent effect to reduce surfactant protein gene expression. Ultimately, milk aspiration may potentially result in a reduced capacity of the lung to defend against environmental insults."


There is no greater insult in all of human experience then a discovery of the lifeless and once trusting body of an infant by a parent who reLIED upon assurances from experts that cow's milk protein was the perfect food for a nursing human infant.

"Death is always around the corner, but often our society gives it inordinate help."
