Maternal CVD Mortality and Breast Feeding

PositiveTips

Researchers analyzed the results of almost 22,000 Norwegian women who were younger than 65 years old at enrollment and had given birth to at least one child. Those who had never nursed were two times as likely to die from cardiovascular disease (CVD) when compared to those who had ever breast-fed. This finding held true when adjusting for CVD risk factors, age, parity, education and marital status.
