10 Ways to Protect Against Breast Cancer

It lists 10 ways to prevent breast cancer, including eating grapes and losing weight, but says nothing about breastfeeding, which has been PROVEN to greatly reduce the risk of hormone-fed breast tumors. It's like they are too scared of offending formula feeding moms or women who don't have kids to state the facts. I have nothing against formula (I supplement with it) or with moms who choose to FF for ANY reason, but this sort of politically correct "health" article that doesn't give all the facts really bothers me.

I agree with you 100%. I thought BFing was one of the best ways (if not THE best) way to help prevent breast cancer.

That's silly that they leave it out. I am against being politically correct as it is, so things like this just make me even more upset.
