Breastfeeding may reduce cancer recurrence (April 30, 2015 - Insidermedicine)
From California - A new report published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute finds that breastfeeding may lower risk of breast cancer recurrence. Researchers studied over 1,600 breast cancer patients, reviewing their medical history and having them undergo a questionnaire regarding their breastfeeding history. They found that breast cancer patients who had previously breastfed were at 30% reduced risk of their disease recurring. They were also at 28% reduced risk of dying from the disease.
