Breast Fed Babies Have Lower Risk of Heart Dis­ease

This title comes from the Health­mall Newslet­ter report­ing on a study pub­lished in the Archives of Dis­ease in Child­hood. In that study inves­ti­ga­tors stud­ied a group of 625 adults born in Ams­ter­dam between 1943 and 1946, dur­ing the Dutch famine. Most study par­tic­i­pants (83%) had been exclu­sively breast-​fed dur­ing their hos­pi­tal stay at birth, (at least 10 days) with the remain­der being par­tially or com­pletely bottle-​fed with cows milk or but­ter­milk. Blood sam­ples were later obtained from these men and women when they were between 48 and 53 years old, in 19951996.

The researchers report that the group who had been par­tially bottle-​fed, or had no breast feed­ing showed impaired insulin func­tion­ing. When insulin func­tion is dis­turbed, dia­betes and other prob­lems may result. In addi­tion, the bottle-​fed group also had higher lev­els of cho­les­terol, indi­cat­ing an increased risk for heart disease.
