Breastfeeding may reduce Alzheimer’s risk
Amazing piece of research!
A new study suggests that mothers who breastfeed run a lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s, with longer periods of breastfeeding further reducing the risk.
“Previous studies have already established that breastfeeding can reduce a mother’s risk of certain other diseases, and research has also shown that there may be a link between breastfeeding and a woman’s general cognitive decline later in life. Until now, however, little has been done to examine the impact of breastfeeding duration on Alzheimer’s risk.”
