Breastfeeding May Lower Multiple Sclerosis Risks For Mom



In MS, resulting nerve damage disrupts the communication between the brain and the body.


Multiple sclerosis causes many different symptoms, including vision loss, pain, fatigue, and impaired coordination. The symptoms, severity, and duration can vary from person to person.


According to a study published in the July 2017, issue of Neurology, mothers who breastfeed for a total of at least 15 months over one or more pregnancies may be less likely to develop multiple sclerosis (MS) compared with those who don’t breastfeed at all or do so for up to four months.
