My grandmother had 6 kids. She is now dying from breast cancer.
Had she breastfed each of her kids for at least 2 years she would have reduced her chance of getting breast cancer by 51%.
Sadly, she had all of her babies in an era where doctors gave new moms medicine to dry up their milk. She was told to not to even try because formula had just come out. It was marketed as being perfect for babies.
However I recently shared this picture (along with my grandmothers stats) on my Facebook page. I have 3 young nieces who are all pregnant. They all read what I wrote and each of them commented that they were determined to breastfeed.
