Katie Hinde, "Why Mammals Suck"

source: Harvard University     2016年8月31日
Milk is abundant at our local grocery store in the form of dairy products and infant formulas. This ubiquity of homogenized milk in our modern environment has the potential for the general public, and even researchers, to think of milk one dimensionally. Milk is not just food, however, but is also medicine and signal. Hundreds, possibly thousands, of other milk “bioactives” affect the infant. Professor Hinde presents emerging research that addresses the magnitude, sources, and consequences of inter-individual variation in mother’s milk including that the “recipe” for milk can be different for sons and daughters.
