Over the years, the advantages of breast feeding over formula feeding have continued to pile up. And here's a new one to add to the pile. For the first time, breast feeding has been compared to formula feeding for their antioxidant power. . . . The study compared fifty-four infants between the ages of three and six months. The antioxidant capacity of the blood was significantly higher in the breast fed babies. This study shows that breast feeding is a significantly better source of antioxidants, contributing to better protection against disease.
