I was reading my Fitness magazine and it had an article on Auto-immune diseases. It said that bfing (or pumping) for 4 to 11 months could cut your risk of developing Rheumatoid Arthritis by 10%. I looked it up on the web, and I'm not sure where they got those numbers, but I did find that bfing (pumping) for one year cut the risk by 20% and for 2 years by 50%. Of course these numbers are over your life time. This is just one study but cutting your risk by 50% of such a horrible disease is very significant. I have an aunt and one of my grandmothers has RA. I think my alumni status is in jeopardy!
