Increased risk of eczema but reduced risk of early wheezy disorder from exclusive breast-feeding in high-risk infants

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

Breast-feeding is recommended for the prevention of eczema, asthma, and allergy, particularly in high-risk families, but recent studies have raised concern that this may not protect children and may even increase the risk. However, disease risk, disease manifestation, lifestyle, and the choice to breast-feed are interrelated, and therefore, analyzing true causal effects presents a number of methodologic challenges.
