The Relationship Between Breastfeeding And Stroke Risk?
want to ask again .. if breastfeeding can reduce the risk of receipt for mothers who have just had a baby .. just saw on the internet, please enlighten me ..
Hello Herra, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
The things mentioned in the article are true. Breastfeeding does have many benefits, both for mothers who are breastfeeding as well as for their babies. The following is an article about the benefits of breastfeeding that you can read.
In a study conducted on 80,000 women who had entered menopause and already had children, it was found that 23 percent of women who had breastfed their babies had a lower risk of stroke. Women who breastfed their babies for 1-6 months had a 19% lower risk, while women who breastfed their babies for more than 6 months had a 25% lower risk. This protective effect is more pronounced in black and Hispanic women.
This study is an observational study that did not examine a cause-and-effect relationship, so it is not completely clear what biological effect of breastfeeding causes breastfeeding women to have a lower risk of stroke.
To be able to reduce the risk of stroke, it is also necessary to take other stroke prevention measures such as:
eat a healthy and nutritionally balanced diet
increase the consumption of vegetables and fruit
maintain ideal body weight
avoid smoking and reduce alcohol consumption
control high blood pressure and diabetes
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
