This message is primarily directed toward posters on the Body Odor forum.
If you don't know the answer, please call your mother or your father and ask.
Few important questions for all of you "stinky" people.
1.Have your been breast-fed as a baby?
2.Have your been breast-fed longer then 6 months?
3.Have your been breast-fed up to 1 year or longer?
4.How old have you been when your mother first time gave you breast-milk replacement formula?
5.How old have you been when your mother first time gave you solid foods?
Why all those questions?
Body Odor is linked to food intolerance.
There seems to be 3 main causes of the Body Odor .
1. Genetic predisposition
2. Repeated or prolonged use of Antibiotics
3. Food intolerance, often linked to #1 & #2
Not-breast-fed babies are given breast-milk replacement formula, as it is widely accepted opinion that babies younger than 12 months should not drink cow or goat milk.
Well, all breast-milk replacement formulas I have seen so far contains soy-lecithin.
The most commonly used infant formulas contain purified cow's milk whey and casein as a protein source, a blend of vegetable oils as a fat source, lactose as a carbohydrate source, a vitamin-mineral mix, and other ingredients depending on the manufacturer. In addition, there are infant formulas using soybean as a protein source in place of cow's milk (mostly in the United States and Great Britain) and formulas using protein hydrolysed into its component amino acids for infants who are allergic to other proteins.
An upswing in breastfeeding in many countries has been accompanied by a deferment in the average age of introduction of baby foods (including cow's milk), resulting in both increased breastfeeding and increased use of infant formula between the ages of 3- and 12-months.
UNICEF estimates that a formula-fed child living in unhygienic conditions is between 6 and 25 times more likely to die of diarrhea and four times more likely to die of pneumonia than a breastfed child.
If body odor is associated with intolerance to soy lecithin, intolerance could be something innitiated already early in life.
Is is not as well accepted knowledge that if baby receives some foods after breast-feeding is discontinued, it might cause intolerance or allergy later in life.
In other words, to avoid intolerance to soy-lecithin, your mother should have been breastfeeding you while soy-lecithin was introduced in your diet.
You are more likely to become allergic or intolerant to any food introduced into your diet after your mother discontinued breastfeeding.
Or, if you have never been breastfed.
