Breastfeeding Tied to Higher Adult IQ in Offspring

Breastfeeding offers many advantages like vital nutrients and vitamins naturally passed from mother to offspring, as well as passive immunity benefits. A study that began in 1982, now shows that duration of breastfeeding is associated with higher IQs in adult offspring. Greater educational attainment, high scores on intelligence tests, and higher monthly incomes were seen in those who were breastfed for a year or longer compared with those who were breastfed for less than a month.
