DH, who is a lot contrarian, brought this to my attention: <a href="http://www.abc.net.au/news/newsitems/200704/s1906097.htm" target="_blank">http://www.abc.net.au/news/newsitems...4/s1906097.htm</a><br><br>
My first reactios are that it does not mention for how long the women were breastfed (6 weeks vs. 1 year) nor does it mention whether solids were delayed. Your reactions?

Okay, what?<br><br>
I want to see the methods on this study. This alone makes me wonder<br><i>It collected the breastfeeding reports of the women's mothers, removed socio-economic factors and concluded that breast feeding is not associated with the body mass index (BMI) of the women as adults.</i><br>
how exactly do you remove socio-economic factors?<br><br>
And is this study done from the women's memories of breastfeeding or the actual events at the time?<br><br>
My guess is that this study, which is not included in the article and has not been repeated with the same results is BUNK!
