Premature babies may benefit more from UV-treated than pasteurised breast milk

New research on pigs conducted at the University of Copenhagen shows that UV-irradiated breast milk may have a better effect on preterm individuals than pasteurised breast milk, which is the type of milk used today. According to the researchers, the result paves the way for studies in babies and, in the long term, a change of practice in relation to breast milk in Denmark.
