Breast feeding Diabetes

Most people believe now that breast feeding is the best way to give a baby important nutrition and health benefits, but a new study indicates that a woman who breast feeds her baby for a full year could reduce her own risk of developing diabetes by 15 percent, and for each baby, the benefits add up.

"Suppose that women do what pediatricians recommend, which is to breast feed the child for a year. A woman has two children, she breast feeds for two years. Our data suggest that she may reduce her risk of diabetes by nearly a third," says Alison Stuebe M.D. Brigham and Women's Hospital. Dr. Stuebe and her colleagues at Brigham and Women's hospital in Boston tracked the health and breast feeding practices of more than one-hundred-fifty-thousand women. Their findings appear in Jama, the Journal of the American Medical Association.
