Last week it was released that Dr Mark Cregan, a molecular biologist at The University of Western Australia, notes that the recent discovery of stem cells in breast milk may mean big things for babies. An article at Science Alert, notes that, of course, this discovery could lead to treatment of diseases, but also elaborates on the subject related to babies, saying that Cregan, "Believes that it not only meets all the nutritional needs of a growing infant but contains key markers that guide his or her development into adulthood. The doctor would like to show that these stem cells in breast milk may contain important developmental markers for infants. If Cregan can produce later study results it could help change the mind of mamas who formula feed vs. breastfeed because while formula can match breast milk nutritionally, it will never be able to match up important issues like key development markers.
