What an amazing journey for this young man.
My husband Vic's son, John, has been studying breast milk for a few years now. The team he works with just published.
In the article photo, you can see John in the back, to your left, bearded in the dark jacket- another handsome Froehlich man. He is getting his PhD in chemistry and was already published, some years ago, as a second researcher for inventing a better process to test for contamination of the Scotch Guard molecule which has permeated every drop of water in the world. He turned 27 this year. Ok, I'm bragging, even though I get absolutely no credit for any of it. Its just joy to see him on his journey.
"The one thing that has evolved with humans, to nourish humans, is breast milk," says J. Bruce German, a food science professor at the University of California, Davis. "It is the ideal evolutionary model for what nourishment should be."
