Background: Strategies to prevent children from developing allergy have been elaborated on the basis of state-of-the-art reviews of the scienti.c literature regarding pets and allergies, building dampness and health, and building ventilation and health. A similar multidisciplinary review of infant feeding mode in relation to allergy has not been published previously. Here, the objective is to review the scienti.c literature regarding the impact of early feeding (breast milk and/or cow's milk and/or formula) on development of atopic disease. The work was performed by a multidisciplinary group of Scandinavian researchers.
Methods: The search in the literature identi.ed 4323 articles that contained at least one of the exposure and health e.ect terms. A total of 4191 articles were excluded mainly because they did not contain information on both exposure and health e.ects. Consequently, 132 studies have been scrutinized by this review group.
Results: Of the 132 studies selected, 56 were regarded as conclusive. Several
factors contributed to the exclusions. The studies considered conclusive by the review group were categorized according to population and study design.
Conclusions: The review group concluded that breastfeeding seems to protect
from the development of atopic disease. The e.ect appears even stronger in
children with atopic heredity. If breast milk is unavailable or insu.cient,
extensively hydrolysed formulas are preferable to unhydrolysed or partially
hydrolysed formulas in terms of the risk of some atopic manifestations.
