We had previously written about the relationship between necrotizing entercolitis—a severe gastrointestinal problem that primarily affects premature babies—and cow’s milk based infant formula.

For further details regarding necrotizing entercolitis, please refer to our previous blog here. Clark Perdue continues to investigate cases of necrotizing entercolitis.
