Women Delivering Their First Baby Weighing More Than 8.25lbs At Risk Of Breast Cancer

Women Delivering Their First Baby Weighing More Than 8.25lbs At Risk Of Breast C

A recent research claimed that mothers giving birth to babies who are large in size are more likely to fall victim to breast cancer at later stage of life. It has been claimed by a team led by Dr. Radek Bukowski, of the University of Texas team that women giving birth to babies as heavy as 8.25lbs or more are under the escalated risk of breast cancer, as they are likely to produce specific hormones including oestrogen.

The study based on 410 women claimed that though women cannot change their pregnancy hormones, they can take all possible measures to shove off breast cancer risk. Moreover, it also depends on women’s own weight, medical history if women would be affected by breast cancer later.

‘The risk for women with larger babies was two and a half times higher, independent of any other risk factors. That is comparable to the increased risk of a woman’s mother having breast cancer, which is one of the strongest risk factors’, said Dr. Radek Bukowski, in the journal PLoS ONE.

While animal studies have proved the connection between the number of breast stem cells and hormones, it is believed that there is a lot more to be studied in the same context for making clinical implications.
