You probably know that breastfeeding will give your baby a healthy beginning, whereas it can also lower your breast cancer risk.
Because breastfeeding can lower breast cancer risk, you should prepare yourself to breastfeed your newborn.
Statistics show that if you breastfeed, you will be at a less risk of developing breast cancer, especially if you have your children at a younger age.
Breastfeeding for at least six months has many benefits to your body, such as:
1) Breastfeeding will increase the maturation of the ductal cells in the breast, perhaps making them more resistant to breast cancer.
2) Your body gets rid of any cells in your breasts that may have DNA damage, this reduces the risk of breast cancer developing in the future.
3) Breastfeeding can lower the levels of some cancer-related hormones in the mother’s body.
4) Breastfeeding has other benefits for mothers, including lowering the risk of type 2 diabetes, ovarian cancer, uterine cancer, and postpartum depression.
Generally, women who breastfeed get less aggressive breast cancer, we advise you to breastfeed your children, in addition to maintaining a healthy weight, regular exercising and never smoking.
