To the Editor: Dr Strom and colleagues1 found no differences in later pubertal maturation
or growth between infants who had been fed soy-based vs milk-based formula.
However, this does not prove that soy-based formulas are safe. In fact, the
authors found that infants who had been given soy-based formula later used
more asthma and allergy medications (P = .047 and
.08 for female and male subjects, respectively). This important observation
was not mentioned in the abstract, which stated that "[n]o statistically significant
differences were observed . . . for more than 30 outcomes."1
