Go, Boobies!!!

Hey, it turns out there are stem cells in human milk. Woah, right? Thanks to the Aussies (who I have heard, have a fantastic national program promoting breastfeeding), we are a little bit closer to realizing just how amazing and irreplaceable human milk really is.

“The Perth scientist who made the world-first discovery that human breast milk contains stem cells is confident that within five years scientists will be harvesting them to research treatment for conditions as far-reaching as spinal injuries, diabetes and Parkinson’s disease.”

And if that wasn’t enough to wow you, this is just out today:

It appears in an Obstetrics & Gynecology report concluding that women who breast-feed are less likely to have heart disease, heart attacks and strokes.

Other scientific studies suggest breast-feeding reduces the risk of diabetes as well as breast and ovarian cancer.

I think a reduced chance of heart disease, heart attacks, strokes, and breast and ovarian cancer is pretty attractive, don’t you?
