comment What are the objective arguments against immunizations for infants and children?
@DanMoulding this is all beyond the scope of the question, and it appears that you are misinterpreting my response. Perhaps you could find a good forum for this discussion on skeptics.se.

comment What are the objective arguments against immunizations for infants and children?
@Darwy you make a good point, but Dr. Sears' main argument is that it does not need to be given at 1-2 days old in the hospital. For hep B to be transmitted via a bite, the bite would have to a) break the skin (relatively uncommon) and b) be made by a carrier, which is extremely rare among infants.

comment Are there any non-soy, non-dairy infant formulas?
@Dan It would be helpful if you could be more specific - what in the book do you consider dangerous? Do you consider this recipe dangerous, and if so, what evidence do you have to support your conclusion?

@DanBeale among other things, the paper says that infants drinking soy milk have ~65-400 times as many estrogen-like isoflavones in their blood compared to infants drinking cow-based milk.

It is clear that you are looking for studies which compare different formulas, but what is the question you are trying to answer / effect you wish to compare? cost? ingredients? overall impact on health or weight gain? corporate ethics?
