[PinkOcto] Breast feeding to stop breast cancer?

The Obedient Wives’ Club, also known as being part of a deviant Muslim sect, came up with this book called “Islamic Sex, fighting Jews to return Islamic sex to the world” which talks about Islamic sex. Apparently one of the chapters of the book deals with fondling breasts.

There’s a claim by the author of the book which says that breast sucking reduces the risk of breast cancer, made by the BBC no less.

Which I could not find.

What I DID discover was that women who breast fed their children tended to have lower risks of cancer. In fact, the National Childbirth Trust in the UK says women should ideally breastfeed their children for a minimum of 6 months or more to reduce their risk of cancer. The American Cancer Society admits that while preliminary studies show breast cancer risk is reduced slightly if a woman breastfeeds for at least 18 months, they are unable to confirm as breastfeeding for this amount of time in the US and other developed countries are uncommon.

If you plan to breastfeed your baby, please read up on it. While it may seem that breastfeeding is supposed to come naturally to mothers, I know a lot of moms who gave up breastfeeding for various reasons. If you’re having troubles, ask for help. Breastfeeding takes time and practice, so don’t be ashamed if it doesn’t go as planned.
