Mothers who have had C-sections are often put on antibiotics.  She might get
some relief from diarrhea if she takes acidophilus capsules.  They are
available in a non-cow milk substrate if necessary.  I have "cured" a lot of
intestinal problems with these.

Maybe the fish eye oil will be put into formula and the formula companies can
trade in their cuddly little animals for Chuck the Tuna (who may be feeding
some blind little fishes on a bed of noodles).  Savor the visualization.
(Sorry, I couldn't resist)

Bovine Serum Albumin is the protein that has been linked to diabetes (I think
I have that right).  It has been found in all the powdered formulas and can
be present in any of the others. Hydrolization cleaves protein bonds.  There
are degrees of hydrolization (which was one of the problems with the original
marketing of  the formula by N****E that was marketed in the US.  It was
supposed to be a hydrolyzed "gentle" formula that was cheaper than the
competition.  It also was less well hydrozlyzed.

Over and out!!
