About this book

Integrating Population Outcomes, Biological Mechanisms and Research Methods in the Study of Human Milk and Lactation is the product of the 10th Conference of the International Society for Research on Human Milk and Lactation, held on September 15-19, 2000, in Tucson, Arizona. The presented sessions at the meeting are as diverse as the volume itself. These sessions include the impact of micronutrient deficiencies during lactation on maternal and infant health, the premature infant, developmental immunology, breastfeeding in the industrialized world, and viral transmission in milk. Whenever possible, the sessions were organized to include human population research, research showing the biological underpinnings of the effects on human health, and important methodological issues. This volume is a contemporary and influential tool for human milk biologists, breastfeeding epidemiologists, biochemists, immunologists, clinical specialists, and all professionals and researchers in the field.

Reviews

`For an IBCLC who looks beyond the practical research that informs her daily work, this is a find. Entries can be read separately, the index is fairly comprehensive, and in none of the acknowledgements is there any reference to the infant formula industry. An alphabetical list of contributors with contact details simplifies follow-up. All in all, this volume is a useful, if pricey, addition to the lactation library.'
Journal of Human Lactation, 20:1 (February 2004)
