Adherence to breastfeeding is equally beneficial to mothers

The issue of infant milk powder safety has been repeatedly exposed, making people more aware of the importance of breastfeeding. According to a new British study, breastfeeding is not only beneficial to the healthy growth of babies, but also to mothers. Women who insist on breastfeeding during child rearing suffer from Alzheimer's disease (also known as senile dementia) in their later years. The risk is smaller than that of women who are not breastfeeding, and the longer they stay breastfeeding, the lower the risk.

It was obtained by researchers from the University of Cambridge in the UK through a survey of 81 British women between the ages of 70 and 100. The researchers collected information about the women ’s fertility history, breastfeeding, and cognitive abilities. In addition, they also investigated other risk factors that may cause their dementia, such as stroke or brain tumors. Through data analysis, researchers found that breastfeeding is closely related to the risk of Alzheimer ’s disease: women who insist on breastfeeding during child rearing are at higher risk of developing Alzheimer ’s disease than women who do not breastfeed The smaller the duration of breastfeeding, the lower the risk.

The researchers said that although the data sample used in the study was small, the high correlation between breastfeeding and the risk of Alzheimer's disease revealed by data analysis suggests that the small sample does not affect the accuracy of the study's conclusions. The researchers also pointed out that in women with a family history of Alzheimer's disease, the relationship between the two is not too obvious.

Investigating the reasons behind this association, the researchers said that this should be due to the specific biological effects of breastfeeding, possibly because breastfeeding will restore women's significantly reduced insulin resistance during pregnancy, or it may be because of breast milk Feeding reduces the level of the hormone progesterone that is greatly increased during pregnancy in the mother's body.

Dr. Molly Fox, who led the study at Cambridge University, pointed out that Alzheimer ’s disease is the most common cognitive impairment disease in the world and affects many people. Therefore, it is very important to develop a low-cost, large-scale prevention strategy. Important, and the new research points out a way to fight this disease, which is especially important for developing countries. At the same time, this research also shows that breastfeeding has obvious advantages over milk powder feeding, and it is very beneficial to both children and mothers.
