The following is an excerpt from Wikipedia:
Health effects of Infant Formula
Use of infant formula is cited in numerous health risks. Studies have found infants in developed countries who consume formula are at increased risk for acute otitis media, non-specific gastroenteritis, severe lower respiratory tract infections, atopic dermatitis, asthma, obesity, type 1 and 2 diabetes, sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), eczema, necrotizing enterocolitis and autism when compared to infants who are breastfed.
Although some early studies have found an association between infant formula and lower cognitive development, other studies have found no correlation. Recently, though, more questions have arisen. It has been discovered that iron supplementation in baby formula is linked to lowered I.Q. and other neurodevelopmental delays.

My question about Iron Supplementation:
Ever since my son was born, I have been questioning the mass encouragement to supplement with iron – it’s everywhere – Iron Fortified Rice Cereals (which by the way were recently shown to be bad for babies), Iron Fortified Formulas, everything has extra iron in it.
My question, since as you know I have a very conspiracy-oriented mind, was this, “Why does this country want our babies to have so much iron? Is it really necessary and for our babies’ best interests?”
This simple Wikipedia article just answered my question. The FDA (and our corrupt government in general) wants our kids (and us) to be stupid.
I’m sorry, my freedom of speech and strong opinions are talking.
Now, I knew all along that the government wants us to be stupid (no room to go into all that here), but now I know that they are pushing iron on our babies as one of their methods to do it. “Iron supplementation in babies linked to lower IQ.” It’s just like flouride. They push it on our kids for “healthy teeth” when really it’s making them dumber. Read this for more info on flouride, “the greatest case of scientific fraud in history” according to one scientist.
Some of you may write me off as a cracy conspiracist, and that’s fine. But my eyes have been opened and I am seeing the truth everywhere. Our government does not love us or our kids. They love money and control. Plain as that.
So raise a cup of raw milk with me and give your baby a sip, because we are fighting for health freedom and we are not going to let the mainstream convince us that Enfamil is the best formula for our baby or that iron supplementing is necessary for our baby (maybe it is, I haven’t researched enough to know for sure), or that if we don’t get flouride our teeth will all fall out.
Givin’ it to ya really raw today… all thanks to good ol’ Wikipedia.
