Breastfeeding lowers heart disease and stroke risk for women after pregnancy

Breastfeeding lowers heart disease and stroke risk for women after pregnancy.

Earlier short-term studies on breastfeeding after pregnancy shows following benefits to mother

  • Better blood sugar or glucose levels
  • Weight loss
  • Improvement in blood pressure levels
  • Lower levels of cholesterol


But there are no long-term studies that show breastfeeding impact on women after pregnancy. A long-term study done by the researchers from the Chinese Academy for Medical Sciences, Beijing, China and the Oxford University, Oxford, United Kingdom shows risk reduction to stroke and risk reduction to the development of heart diseases later in the life with breastfeeding in addition to benefits to born babies. Researchers had conducted eight-year-long studies with nearly 289,573 middle-aged women with an average age of 51 years. The study results show

  • Breastfeeding reduces the risk of the stroke by eight percent and to the development of heart diseases by nine percent
  • Risk reduction to stroke by 17 percent and risk reduction to heart diseases by 18 percent if they continue breastfeeding for 2 years
  • For every six months additional breastfeeding after 2 years, incremental risk reduction by four percent to heart disease and three percent to stroke
  • This study shows health benefits increases as the breastfeeding duration increases

Researchers say breastfeeding benefits women after pregnancy as the fat clearing system and body metabolism were restored. Breastfeeding eliminates stored fat quickly and completely in women after the birth of the baby. The guidelines of the World Health Organization suggests breastfeeding up to two years or longer. Senior author of the study was Professor Zhengming Chen, D.Phil., from the University of Oxford. The study findings were published June 21, 2017, in the American Heart Association. Title of the article was "Breastfeeding may reduce a mother's heart attack and stroke risk".

Continuous mental stress such as depression and anxiety increase death risk in heart disease patients

Continuous mental stress such as depression anxiety increase death risk in heart disease patients.

A study done by the researchers suggest mind relaxation to reduce the risk of death to heart disease individuals who experience continuous mental distress such as depression and anxiety, ranging from moderate to severe intensity. Researchers had conducted studies among 950 individuals with stable coronary heart disease, aged between 31 - 74 years. All the participants had either a heart attack or hospitalized with severe chest pain during the past 3 years. Their study shows risk with continuous mental distress as follows

  • Death with cardiovascular disease increase by nearly four times
  • Death due to any cause increase by nearly three times


Researchers collected validated general health questionnaire (GHQ30) during the study duration. They graded the patient's mental distress according to its severity and length of time. They tracked health and survival of patients for 12 years. During the study duration, deaths recorded were

  • Deaths due to cardiovascular disease were 199
  • Deaths due to all causes were 398

Researchers say stress hormone levels increase with mental distress activities. Continuous mental distress activities result in harmful physiological changes. They also say that their study shows the relationship between psychological distress (such as depression and anxiety) and cardiovascular disease. Lead author of the study was Dr. Ralph Stewart, a cardiologist, from the University of Auckland. The study findings were published in the journal Heart. Title of the article was "Persistent psychological distress and mortality in patients with stable coronary artery disease".
