Breastfeed to avoid diabetes
Melbourne: Women who breastfeed their children are less likely to develop diabetes in later life, according to a new study from The Sax Institute.
The “surprising” finding has been made in a five-year study- titled “45 And Up” - examining the health of people in NSW aged 45 and over.
“There are very few things you can actually do long term to prevent diabetes. But women who breastfed in their 20s, 30s and early 40s, actually prevented diabetes over their lifetime. That to me was quite surprising,” News.com.au quoted Professor Emily Banks as telling a news agency
The study of more than 250,000 people also found that life expectancy could be increased by avoiding too much sitting down.
“The longer you sit, the more likely you are going to die in the next three years,” Prof Banks said.
Researchers believe standing up is beneficial to a person’s health.
The Sax Institute is a coalition of 37 public health agencies, health service groups and universities across the state.
