with guest Dr. Heather Patisaul
Air Date: April 30, 2018
If you’ve been in a store’s baby section lately, you’ve probably noticed the formula. It’s hard not to notice it—there are more kinds of formula than ever before, and they take up a lot of shelf space. Milk-based, soy; regular, hypoallergenic … the variety can be overwhelming! What’s a parent to do? Before you buy any formula—and before you feed any to your baby—make sure you know all about it. Join Marie and special guest Dr. Heather Patisaul of NC State University for a conversation that provides the ins and outs of soy formula. Make sure you know about the phytoestrogens in soy and how they affect the body (short-term and long-term). Tune in for an eye-opening discussion of a product that’s become pervasive—for better or for worse, and consider information you need to make the best decision possible for your baby and your family.
