Babies who are breastfed for the first six months of life have fewer blood pressure challenges in the future, researchers at the University of North Carolina have found.

The study involved 56,000 Americans, some of whom were breastfed and others fed with a substitute. The peculiarities of life, nutrition, physical activity and others are taken into account.

It turns out that in the next 14 years of life, blood pressure problems decreased by 25% in those who were breastfed in the first 3-4 months of life. Women who did not breastfeed their children increased their chances of getting sick by 22%.

But breastfeeding in the first months of life reduces the risk of developing such as diabetes, heart disease and high cholesterol, experts say.
