Lactoferrin inhibits the growth of iron-dependent bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract. This inhibits certain organisms, such as coliforms and yeast, that require iron. Secretory IgA also works to protect the infant from viruses and bacteria, specifically those that the baby, mom, and family are exposed to. It also helps to protect against E. Coli and possibly allergies. Other immunoglobulins, including IgG and IgM, in breast milk also help protect against bacterial and viral infections. Eating fish can help increase the amount of these proteins in your breast milk. Lysozyme is an enzyme that protects the infant against E. Coli and Salmonella. It also promotes the growth of healthy intestinal flora and has anti-inflammatory functions. Bifidus factor supports the growth of lactobacillus. Lactobacillus is a beneficial bacteria that protects the baby against harmful bacteria by creating an acidic environment where it cannot survive

This is a ridiculous statement Sir. There are plenty of good Chinese People and alot of good thing come out of there. They have their issues just like evey country.edit on 26-11-2012 by brew8537 because: mistake
They have more issues than many countries. Their educational system is even more of a joke than that in America, their food is much more poisonous (Chinese wouldn't DREAM of eating raw veggies, they'd almost certainly fall ill), their government can simply make them disappear without a trace and often does, the local Communist party is pretty much free to steal land from people and give it to their cronies, there is no effective means to petition the government for change or to redress wrongs, and if a person collapses on the street and dies they will just step over his stinking corpse.
Sure, America or Canada or even Pakistan have problems, but it's nothing like China.
sigh i lived in china for two years, and ate their food. Im still alive!
And dont be so ignorant in thinking because some chinese people
will walk past a body, or someone hurt, like that poor little kid who
was knocked over by a van and later died, that all chinese are like
Yes, the case with the baby food is disgusting, but does that mean
the chinese government killed him? Why?
When thing i cant stand is primitive thinking people who think other
countries, apart from their own, are like borg. It drives me mad!
Two years? THAT'S IT?
I'm afraid that all you have to answer any criticism is simple denial, without any actual facts. That's fine.
However, yes, I would say the Chinese are the closest things to Borg that I have ever seen. I deal with Chinese much more often than you likely do, and they are just really a piece of work. Borg is the best description that one could come up with. Thanks for that!

When you were in China what was your main health concern?
Was it the water, the air, or the local produce?
Thanks for the information and the perspective from someone who has lived in China.
I thank you.
