Q

Is there a connection between post-WWII babies not being nursed but instead drinking formula and cereal at one month old that may be causing more of them to have celiac disease?

Introducing gluten prior to four months of age may indeed increase the risk of developing celiac disease in genetically predisposed babies. However, formula or breast feeding appear to have no influence. July, 2015
