Miami University computational biologist Iddo Friedberg is part of a new study that shows that breast-feeding may contribute to the development of beneficial bacteria in babies. Early colonization of the gut by microbes in infants is critical for development of their intestinal tract and in immune development, according to the study authors. The results showed that the breast-fed babies had a wider range of microbes in their gut than the formula-fed infants but that their immune systems had developed to cope.
