Babies exclusively bottle-fed weighed significantly more than babies who were breast fed, an important fact considering that obesity remains a strong factor in developing diabetes. The study did not necessarily show that bottle feeding somehow causes diabetes.
Generally, women who choose to breast feed are different than women that do not. Previous studies found that affluent women are more likely to breast-feed.
Because this demographic difference exists, additional factors of child-rearing change also. Researchers noted that upbringing, diet and other environmentally-influenced aspects vary according to income, which in turn could affect the development of diabetes.
