Study: Breastfeeding Linked to Brainpower

Doctors have long recommended breastfeeding for all the health advantages it provides to babies and moms.

Now, a new study from the UK shows that children who were breastfed as infants scored higher on vocabulary and reasoning tests. Breastfeeding also helped babies who were born premature.

Researchers could not say how breastfeeding helped brainpower but that a link exists. The findings were published in The Journal of Pediatrics.
