Women who breast feed are far less likely to develop breast cancer.
The phrasing of that "rumor" is less than accurate. The correct relationship is that women who breastfeed have a reduced chance of developing breast cancer. Additionally, the longer a woman breastfeeds, the more protection the breastfeeding provides. Basically, breastfeeding serves as one protective factor against developing breast cancer. Other factors include diet and exercise.
There is a correlation between breast feeding and a decrease in breast cancer.A group out of Boston did a study of 9000 women and found that not only does it decreases breast cancer but,it does not matter what age you start.Drs.have known for a long time that breast feeding at a younger age provided some increased protection from breast cancer.This study proved that no matter what age you start breast feeding,you will get the benefit.
all the so-called experts say that women have a less chance of developing breast cancer if the breastfeed their babies it has something to do with the milk glands.
My friend's mom breastfed all 3 of her kids and she still developed breast cancer in her late 40's. Basically - it can happen to anyone at anytime. Just go for yuor check-up exams and live a healthy life
