  • CONF 2017 Breast Cancer and Its Relationship to Breastfeeding

    Contains 3 Component(s), 1.00 credit offered Recorded On: 07/22/2017

    In this session, Fedro Peccatori, MD, PhD reviews research on the dose-response relationship between breastfeeding and several different types of breast cancer. He also describes the hypothesized mechanisms of how breastfeeding reduces the risk of breast cancer: 1) decreased breast cell susceptibility to becoming cancer cells due to lactation-induced differentiation of breast tissue, 2) fewer lifetime menstrual cycles and less estrogen exposure, 3) lower intra-mammary carcinogen levels, and 4) lower intra-mammary inflammation. He urges lactation professionals to not minimize the risks of not breastfeeding.
