Large Babies Double Breast Cancer Risk

Guidry News

Dr. Radek Bukowski, professor of obstetrics and gynecology in the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, has been doing research on the effect that the size of babies at birth has on the future health of the mother.  Previous research indicated that delivering a full-term baby of small birth weight is an independent indicator of later heart disease for the mother.  In his latest research Bukowski studied mothers who delivered larger babies. Coverage has also appeared in EmpowHer, The Plain Dealer, Le Figaro Santé, Jezebel, Fox News Radio, TIME Healthland, The Stir, Netdoctor.com, Herald.ie, FrenchTribune.com, Private MD Labs, FoxNews.com, Counsel & Heal, RedOrbit, News Track India, CNN.com, WebMD, Health Day, dailyRX, MyHealthNewsDaily, NBC Latino, Parents.com, The Daily Mail online, Examiner.com, MedicalXpress, InsiderMedicine.com, ABC 7 Chicago and many other national and international media outlets.
