Breastfeeding cuts arthritis risk

i like to post things that remind me that nursing callum not only benefits him, but my health too. 15 months of human milk and counting!

The study found that women who breastfed for longer had a smaller chance of developing RA. In fact, those who breastfed for up to 12 months were 25% less likely to develop it, while those who breastfed for 13 months or more were half as likely to develop it.

yea! didn't even know i was getting this benefit!
