Breastfeed baby, Cut cancer risk

Yes that's true, indeed.
Breastfeeding babies can reduce mum's ovarian cancer risk by two-thirds

Those who breastfed a child for 13 months were 63% less likely to develop a tumor than those who did so for less than seven months.

The more kids they had the greater the effect.
Is that why earlier Indian women were less prone to ovarian cancer, as they were producing more than an urban mom now?

Mothers who had three kids and breastfed for 31 months were found to cut chances of ovarian tumors by 91%

Breastfeeding is thought to help as it delays ovulation, when eggs are released
