Fact of the Day: breastfeeding and cancer

Breastfeeding reduces mama’s risk of ovarian and breast cancer, heart disease, and osteoporosis. The longer she breastfeeds, the higher the benefit. In fact, a woman who breastfeeds for 8 years has nearly a 0% risk of breast cancer.

Not only that, but breastfeeding a baby girl actually reduces her lifetime risk of breast cancer by 25%.
