Im not a women obviously, but a study at UNC has just learned that women with a family history or genetic history of breast cancer can reduce there chance of getting it by 59% if they just breast feed....Interesting huh?

Makes perfect sense, women who have given birth are less likely to get ovarian/reproductive parts cancer than those who have not as well. 
From an evolutionary standpoint, these are things your body wants to do...not doing them can cause issues. (NOTE: I'm not saying there's anything wrong from choosing not to have kids, just saying that's what our bodies are meant to do. The mind on the other hand doesn't always agree!)

AllHailDietmar, I am not sure if you were making a joke with your comment, but if you were it was really funny. I just wanted to let you know it was bad, but hilarious. If you were not then I seriously have issues and need to see a shrink and get my miind out of the gutter.

AllHailDietmar.....hilariouos!!! My husband would agree. My dad, not so much.

Though seriously I don't buy into all these new theories. My friend BF 3 children and had a very agressive form of breast cancer.
They say the same thing about BF babies and them being healthier. My 2 children proved that theory totally wrong!
Dx with Crohn's in 1997 after 5 years of worsening symptoms.
Resection a few months after dx after 1 month on TPN and IV steroids.
Resection October 2008.
Also have severe asthma.

Tried: Pentasa, Cholestyramine, Asacol, Humira

Presently taking: now on Remicade, Imuran, probiotics, calcium, B12, nortryptiline.
For asthma I take Advair 250, singulair
