In yesterday’s Dispatch, ACSH staffers considered the Reproductive Risk Factors for Incontinence Study at Kaiser (RRISK) study, which correlates breast feeding with a reduced risk of Type 2 diabetes, as the first of its kind that we were aware of. But Dr. Eleanor Schwarz, an assistant professor of medicine, epidemiology, obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive sciences at the University of Pittsburgh, informed us that there are, in fact, a few studies demonstrating this associationone of which she co-authored.

ACSH's Dr. Gilbert Ross thanks Dr. Schwarz for informing him on the issue. “We are pleased to learn that academics like Dr. Schwarz are reading Dispatch and welcome others to submit their comments, as well,” he says.
