This web page has all the studies you would need to really decide for yourself if you want to consume something or have a family member consume it.

Check out this article on infant formula.

Mead Johnson is a major manufacturer of infant formula both domestically and globally with its flagship product being Enfamil.

Why is infant formula associated with increased morbidity and mortality? We believe that many of the ingredients in these products are not always biologically appropriate, and due to the fact that many are byproducts of the mining and chemical industries, may act as endocrine disruptors or metabolic poisons. For example, vitamin A acetate is produced through “total chemical synthesis” through a petrochemically dependent process. It has been linked to birth defects, and so may be very different from the type of vitamin A (e.g. retinol) found in natural carotenoids like beta-carotene (technically two linked retinol molecules).
