  • CONF 2017 Can Breastfeeding Protect Against Childhood Obesity?

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 07/22/2017

    This presentation reviews current research on the connection between breastfeeding and the prevention of childhood obesity. It explores the multiple maternal and infant factors involved in the development of childhood obesity as well as breastfeeding’s role in relationship to these factors. The presentation also discusses the newest systemic meta-analysis review which concludes that breastfeeding does have an effect on prevention but the degree of protection is influenced by the other multiple factors involved in the development of childhood obesity; therefore, breastfeeding promotion is only one part of a multifaceted plan needed to reduce childhood obesity.

  • CONF 2017 Breast Cancer and Its Relationship to Breastfeeding

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits 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.
