Ladies,
 
Connie has asked me to set up a poll addressing breast feeding. Pam had posted an article on this subject just today, and it stated:
 
As reported in the journal Cancer , breast feeding for at least 6 months was found to reduce the risk for triple-negative disease (odds ratio {OR}=0.5 and to a lesser extent luminal breast cancer (OR=0.80) compared with breast feeding for less than 6 months.
 
Connie said that she would like to see if we can get more women to complete this poll, than the 78 cases of triple-negative that this study had reported. I have never set up a poll before, so Pam will have to tell me if I need to edit or change it in any way. I'm not even sure if the poll choices I selected are what we need.
Nancy

I had always heard that breast feeding was a way to reduce your risk of breast cancer. I have 3 sons, all of whom I breast fed until they were a year old. Then, with no family history, at the age of 55 in June of 07 I have tnbc. So, obviously for me it didn't help, but I still would have breast fed anyway.

Hi,

you are asking about breast feeding, i personally feel that breast feeding is for to less breast cancer the  and you can also know more about breast feeding from via searching sites about breast feeding.

It surely didn't reduce my risk ! I breast fed 2 daughters for over a year each. 7 1/2 years later is when my tumor was found.

Just a thought, however, there is no way to respond that you have never been pregnant.  I wonder if we should add that as an option because not breast feeding due to no pregnancy is biologically (hormonally) different than not breast feeding after a pregnancy.

Nancy Jane,
 
I will try to do what you have suggested, but I don't believe there is another space on the poll. I'll ask Pam.

Well, breastfeeding led to slow diagnosis for me.  Because I was still nursing when I found a lump in my breast, my doc and I both assumed it was mastitis, and then an abscess.  Took about 3 months before I found out it was cancer.  Just bad luck, though.
