NEW YORK — A new study claims the benefits of breast-feeding have been overstated.
The study, published in the journal Social Science & Medicine, is unique in the literature about breast-feeding because it looks at siblings who were fed differently during infancy. That means the study controls for a lot of things that have marred previous breast-feeding studies.
