One Year Breastfeeding Reduces Risk of Breast Cancer by 32% for BRCA2 Gene

One Year Breastfeeding Reduces Risk of Breast Cancer by 32% for BRCA2 Gene

Amongst the general population of healthy women, breastfeeding for a year reduces the risk of breast cancer by 4.3 per cent, the authors said. Almost 6,000 women with the BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes were included in the study, with around half having already been diagnosed with cancer. The cancer sufferers had breastfed for an average of two months less than those without cancer. It was calculated that breastfeeding for one year reduced the risk of cancer by 32 per cent and for two or more years cut it by almost half. The researchers said each year of breastfeeding reduced the risk of breast cancer by 19 per cent.
