|A new study has suggested that breastfeeding may equip babies and infants with stronger lungs well into their childhood.
The study of 1,456 10-year-olds on the Isle of Wight whose progress had been studied since birth, conducted by UK and US scientists, found that those who were breastfed for at least four months had much better lung function.
Researchers claim that their results may prove that breastfed babies are less susceptible to developing asthma and other respiratory conditions in later life.
