Did you know that breastfeeding protects against breast cancer? It really does. Indeed, for every year of breastfeeding, breast cancer risk is lowered by approximately 4%.
Did you know that girls that are breastfed also have a lowered risk - 17% according to one study - of developing breast cancer as an adult? (although apparently for first born children this lowered risk is not seen).
Did you know that on Friday, April 13th, HitsFM, of previous blog fame, will be having a Pay and Play event to raise funds for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation?
What a perfect pair, breastfeeding promotion and breast cancer fundraising! (Yes, that pun was intended)
And did you know that there are some great breastfeeding songs out there?
Like this Hip Hop Number, "Food For Thought," by Njeri Earth.
There's this one, too, though they probably can't play it on the radio as I'm not sure there's an audio recording:
Then there's the animated version of the punk rock all-mom band The Mothers song Milk Pistols, transformed into the Cowgirls (note, if requesting this song it is by The Mothers, not the Cowgirls, but this is the video)
