The Role of Breastmilk in the Biome of the Human Body


Product Description

 The following product is a recording of a live webinar originally hosted on January 19th 2017
The Role of Breastmilk in the Biome of the Human Body
A presentation by William Parker, PhD

This webinar will focus on the human body as an ecosystem that is critically dependent of breast milk. The ecosystem of the human body is comprised of microbes (bacteria, yeast, and viruses) and other organisms that are critical for health. With this in mind, the disruption of that ecosystem by infant formulas will be described.   Within the context of the body as an ecosystem, the importance of breast milk in maintaining gut bacteria and the importance of gut bacteria in human health will be described. Finally, recent research that explores the advantages of breast milk and the shortcomings of infant formula  for the ecosystem of the human body will be described.

All attendees will receive a link to the recorded webinar, even if you cannot attend the live event.


(1) To understand how breast milk supports the microbiome in the human body.
(2) To understand the role of the microbiome in health and disease


William Parker, PhD, has worked on the ecosystem of the human body at Duke University for more than 20 years, publishing more than 100 peer reviewed scientific articles during that time. He is most well-known for discovering the function of the human appendix as a safe-house for beneficial bacteria, answering a 400-year old question first posed by Leonardo da Vinci. His current work involves the study of how Western Society has modified the body’s ecosystem, leading to epidemics of neuropsychiatric disorders (e.g., migraine headaches and anxiety disorders), heart disease, and a variety of other inflammatory-related illnesses.
