Breast-feeding is associated with improved lung function in school-age children, particularly those with asthmatic mothers,” according to a study  in this month’s  American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.  After measuring lung functions of 12-year-old children, researchers found that “breast-fed kids overall had a ‘modest improvement’ in forced mid-expiratory flow (FEF50),” and “breast-fed kids whose mothers also had asthma also did better on two other lung function tests, forced vital capacity (FVC) and forced expiratory volume at one second (FEV1).”
