Effects of Soy-based Formula in Infants

Infants who consumed soy-based formula showed changes in their reproductive cells and tissues, compared to those who consumed cow-milk formula or were breastfed. Babies who were breastfed and consumed soy-formula for a long time instead of cow-milk formula faced few difficulties like milk allergies, lactose intolerance and other feeding difficulties. The soy-proteins contain high amounts of genistein, an estrogen-like compound.
