Benefits of breast-feeding

leave a comment »

I don’t know how many of you had a chance to look at this research study article that highlights the importance and benefits of breast-feeding…here is an extract from it – “In the study, the researchers looked at 139,681 women with an average age of 63 who had at least one child. Those who had a lifetime history of more than 12 months of breast-feeding had a lower risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and heart disease than women who also had at least one child, but did not breast-feed. What’s more, the longer they breast-fed, the greater the apparent benefit to their hearts — even after the researchers adjusted for factors that could affect heart disease risk, such as obesity.” More here – http://edition.cnn.com/2009/HEALTH/04/22/healthmag.breast.feeding.heart/index.html.
