Bioactive ingredients in infant formula: The value for a robust interdisciplinary discussion on safety assessment paradigm

Abrams and Daniels, in a commentary, noted that the recent trend of adding novel ingredients with biological activity to infant formula is not supported by robust scientific literature on their long-term safety or benefits.1 We would like to expand on the authors ’ observations. A review of the current literature shows a widely held presumption that the presence of bioactive constituents in human and other mammalian milks implies anticipated beneficial effects from exposure, and further that this presence, together with traditional toxicologic testing and anthropometric clinical studies, constitutes sufficient evidence to establish their safety for infant formula use at similar levels.

However, the effect of MW radiation on human skin biology is not well understood. We study the effects of pulsed high-power microwaves (HPMs) on melanoma (G361 and SK-Mel-31) and normal human dermal fibroblast (NHDF) cells. A pulsed power generator (Chundo...

Resting state functional connectivity (RSFC) has been widely studied in functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and is observed by a significant temporal correlation of spontaneous low-frequency signal fluctuations (SLFs) both within and across hemispheres during rest. Different hypotheses of RSFC include the biophysical origin hypothesis and cognitive origin hypothesis, which show that the role of SLFs and RSFC is still not completely understood. Furthermore, RSFC and age studies have shown an “age-related compensation” phenomenon. RSFC data analysis methods include time domain analysis, seed-based correl...
