Bruce German on How Human Milk Does the Body Good

Professor Bruce German, distinguished food scientist at the University of California, joins David Gornoski and Tucker Goodrich for an important conversation on nutritional science, namely the importance of breastfeeding babies, and why antibiotic treatment decreases the natural transference of Bifidobacterium infantis, which is vastly important for newborn infants.
