It was referring to kids that had formula in the past (I mean our parents/grandparents) and how you hear the argument that they turned out just fine. Well, back then, after formula you ate whole foods mainly...there was no such thing as processed foods. So, yes, they had a good start.
Fast forward to today: We hear the argument for BF/FF. Well, we all know that formula is a processed food. Breast milk is not. But, if your kid had formula and you chose to feed him healthy when he weaned, your kid will still be fine. If you BF and then feed nothing but, processed crap, your kid will not benefit from his time BF because he is eating crap.
Now, if you BF, then, only feed healthy, whole foods and organic and nutritious foods, then, there is where the BF pays off...your child will be healthier.
This also explains the rise in deaths from heart disease, cholesterol and diabetes...better eating would help.
