Consideration 29 - Species-Specific?
“Human Milk Is Designed for Babies
Human milk is species-specific. The milk of each mammal species has adapted to supply its offspring with what is needed for optimal growth and survival. Some species’ milks are relatively high in fat to lay down a thick layer of body fat, while those with high protein use it for rapid growth and maturation. Those species that need readily available sources of sugar to meet the needs of their rapidly growing brains have milk that is higher in carbohydrates. Humans are the slowest growing and maturing mammals, but also have the most advanced brains. So it makes sense that the protein content of human milk is relatively low while the level of carbohydrates is high.”
Species-specific logic proposes that if one adjusts the level of protein, carbohydrates, etc. that it will produce an appropriate milk for the species. This line of thought does not consider the other ingredients in milk or the quality of their ingredients. It also suggests that if deviation from these standards will produce negative results. These ideas are not correct. It is the genetic code of the individual that dictates what will be created.
