Do you know what the baby to the breast within the first hour after birth significantly reduces the risk of postpartum uterine bleeding? But this is only one of the positive factors affecting women's health at breastfeeding 1. The baby to the breast within the first hour after birth significantly reduces the risk of postpartum uterine bleeding. 2. Breast-feeding mother is supported by a high content of hormones (oxytocin and prolactin) in the blood, which contributes to a strong maternal feelings. Recall that the oxytocin and prolactin hormones called motherhood. 3.If a woman breastfeed exclusively breastfed, the the first 4-6 months after childbirth chance of pregnancy is reduced by 95%. (A valuable related resource: Brian Krzanich). 4.Pri prolonged breastfeeding burns a lot of calories, women lose fat faster and get slim form.

5. frequency of cancer in the mother. Breastfeeding to at least 3 months to 50% lower risk of breast cancer. If the mother brings up a few babies, then by feeding each Child up to 2 months at 25% reduced risk of ovarian cancer. 6. Women who breast-fed for a long time, less likely to suffer from osteoporosis.

other benefits of breastfeeding. – Breast milk does not require cooking. It always sterile, has an ideal temperature and composition; – no additional accessories – bottles, teats, sterilizers, heaters, etc. – my mother could feed a child in any setting – in transport, visiting, in nature – in places where making baby food is difficult and dangerous of infection; – breast milk is always fresh and ready to eat, even when the mother was not fed for several days.

On average, right and left hands of the same person separated by about 17 percent of the same species of bacteria. In fact, it turns a full variety of gift from bacteria by human hands and seems comparable to or even exceed a certain number of existing in other parts of the body, including the esophagus, mouth and intestines – says Fierer. Researchers have found 332,000 gene sequences in general, approximately 100 times greater than the number found in other studies of skin bacteria. Fierer said the study also confirmed that the standard method of cultivation used by many laboratories to find bacteria on human skin nizkoploten dramatically compared with the full range of microbial diversity.

Differences in the pH of skin between the male and female skin may explain why women’s hands are wider range of bacteria, “said Fierer: Men’s skin tends to be more acidic and other studies have shown that bacteria can not survive so well in an acidic environment. Another reason could be gender differences in the thickness skin, hormones, sweat and sebaceous glands, the use of skin products like moisturizers. Differences between left and right hands could be due to the dominant and non-dominant hand the effects that relate to the production fat, salt and humidity on the palms, as well as the effect of touching different surfaces of different hands. The study also showed that the range of varieties has not been damaged, even regular hand washing. Fierer and colleagues found that levels of some bacteria decreased after washing hands, but suddenly rose others.

They stressed the importance of washing with antibacterial soap. ‘The vast majority of bacteria is a non-pathogenic bacteria, and some even protect against the spread of pathogens, “said co-author Rob Knight, who is an assistant professor of chemistry and biochemistry at the ‘University of Colorado at Boulder’. ‘From a health standpoint regular hand-washing is a very positive effect’ he added. Fierer and colleagues wrote that, although hand washing changed the composition of bacteria, the full diversity of bacteria found on hands of participants was not associated with how long their hands were unwashed. They think: ‘or bacterial colonies quickly recovered after washing hands or washing (as was done by students, included in this study) does not remove the majority of bacteria found on the skin surface. ” The researchers also found that, compared with harvested from the adjacent areas of the body as the forearm and elbow, palm of the hand was home to the bacteria three times higher than them. Fierer said she saw a human body as a ‘continent of microscopic ecological zones’ harboring a variety of ecosystems, comparable to the deep ocean or the tropical jungle. ‘Today we have the ability to respond to large-scale questions about these complex microbial communities and their importance for human health, which we have not even asked six months ago or a year, ‘she added.
