Breastfeeding shown to reduce Alzheimer’s risk in mothers

Breastfeeding baby

Doctors have found yet another health advantage for breastfeeding.

Studies are showing it is not only good for baby but good for moms as well.

Results show children who are breastfed will likely have a higher IQ.

Now, a new study from Cambridge suggests women who breastfeed cut their risk of getting Alzheimer’s by more than half.

Scientists said the longer mothers breastfeed, the lower their risk of developing the cognitive disorder.
