Breastfeeding is Good for Moms

I ran across this article from BBC News a couple years ago.

Extra Breastfeeding Prevents Cancer

When you do the math, you see that if a woman has 8 children, she has a more than 90% chance of *not* getting breast cancer. Hmmmmm...Maybe God knew what He was doing when He created our bodies to function as they do.

God definitely did. But I do know of a woman that had 7 children and died from cancer that started from breast cancer. So ultimately our lives are still in His control. But I will say that I am still a strong advocate on breastfeeding and know that it is part of God's plans for us.

True, there are no guarantees. Anyone can be part of the small percentage, and God is the one who numbers our days. But it's still true that breastfeeding offers a lot of protection. So I agree with you.
