Breastfeeding Reduces Risk of Diabetes
Breastfeeding has many benefits, and now it is being shown to help reduce the risk of diabetes:
"The benefits of breast-feeding are well documented. Breast milk is the healthiest and safest food for babies and it’s easy to digest. Breastfeeding and breast milk contribute to every part of baby’s development including physical, emotional, and perhaps even intellectual. Babies who are breast-fed have fewer infections such as colds, ear infections and diarrhea. Breast milk can even help prevent childhood obesity, cancer, and diabetes.
Most mothers who have breastfed will tell you the benefits they receive are significant as well. Breastfeeding helps establish an emotional bond unlike anything else a mother does to nurture her child. But there’s more.
Breastfeeding is good for a mother’s health, too.
A new study reveals that breastfeeding is also good for mother’s health as well. According to research, breastfeeding for even one month will lower a woman’s risk of developing type-2 diabetes in her lifetime."
