I just sent this message to the CEO at breast cancer society [email protected]:
if we flood them, they won't be able to ignore us.
I was shocked to discover you didn't note breastfeeding on your reducing risk page:
A study by Yale University researchers showed that women who breastfed for two years or longer reduced their risk of breast cancer by 50 percent.
In the following you will find studies on breastfeeding's protective effects on mothers: 'New England Journal of Medicine', 'American Journal of Epidemiology' and 'Journal of Clinical Epidemiology'.
Please add it. Help the children of tomorrow while helping the mothers of today.

I hope this helps.
Man I know! This benefit to BFing needs to be promoted more widely! Like for example I saw a list of 10 things a women can do to prevent cancer in Prevention magazine, and I felt like BFing should have been on that list! Young women making a choice about BFing or bottle need to know about this.
