The study's aims were to determine the extent of aluminum contamination in whole milk, milk formulas, and other nutrient products commonly used for infants.
Aluminum may be linked to Alzheimers.
The study found:
(a) Aluminum content was lowest in human milk, whole cow milk, and products that appear to require minimal manufacture processing and have few additives such as, bottled glucose water, and sterile water.
(b) Highest Aluminum levels (up to 2346 μg/liter) were found in highly processed and modified formulas including soy formula and preterm infant formula.
(c) Aluminum content of humanized cow milk formula was 400 μg/liter.
To conclude: Aluminum contamination is six times higher in soy formula compared to cow's milk formula.
