Breastfeeding Reduces Risk of Multiple Sclerosis

A  2017 study of 830 women by Langer-Gould A, et al published in the journal Neurology found that breastfeeding may reduce the risk of multiple sclerosis (MS). This study showed that women who breastfed for a total of at least 15 months over one or more pregnancies were 53 percent less likely to develop MS or its precursor. Previous studies showed that women with MS have less symptoms of the disease during pregnancy. The authors speculate this may have to do with lack of ovulation during breastfeeding.
