BREASTFEEDING:: It may even help eyesight

The more we research, the more we learn about the importance of breast milk and the start it can give us in life. A new study has found that it might even improve our eyesight.
In a study of 797 schoolchildren aged between 10 and 12, myopia was less prevalent among those who had been breastfed. Even those who were only partly breastfed still had better eyesight than children who were given no breast milk.
The study cannot draw a direct causal connection between good eyesight and breastfeeding, but there are plenty of signs that point us in that direction. Breast milk is full of micronutrients that are missing from formula milk, including docosahexaenoic acid, which helps the healthy development of neurons and photoreceptors related to vision.
