Earn More Money with Breastfeeding

According to a recent study, even marginal increases in breast feeding rates could be worth millions to society when considering the benefit
to cognitive development.

UK and German researchers came to this conclusion after calculations using over 10,000 school exam results. Using a model based on the assumption that improved UK General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) exam results meant higher future salaries, researchers calculated that if the UK saw a 1% increase in breastfeeding rates, the 800,000 children born in the UK per year could collectively earn over £33 million (€40 million) more over their working lifetime.

Women go to BAT

I've been so busy recently that this is the first post is about 3 weeks... AND during that hiatus, this blog's 5-year anniversary came and went without any fanfare. It's hard to believe it's been 5 years already, and I look back at all the posts, studies, rants, videos and other extra-curricular goodies that has allowed this blog to grow and spread the message of natural health.

I have to thank everyone of you, all my subscribers, as well as those just stopping by, for helping me make this blog a success...well, at least to me.  :)

To kick things off again, on this International Women's Day, I'm going to quickly discuss a new study on brown adipose tissue (BAT), also known as "brown fat." If you are new to this term, click HERE as I've discussed this a few times before.
