my guess is that breast-feeding is generally good and healthy but the malformations of ccsvi are already there by the time the baby is born

there is some concern that breastfed babies do not get enough vitamin D. So they are sometimes given vitamin D liquid supplements. That is one way breast-feeding could result in MS risk for the baby...but easily countered by giving the supplements!

Would be very interesting to see how many of us were not breast fed.
might make a very good survey if you posted it as one Gordon--I was not breast fed, and am sure that accounts for much of the ills I have had, not just MS.

The Question is this.... Do people who are Breast fed have less of a chance of getting MS.

I breast fed my daughter until she was one and we lived in Madrid, Spain at the time so plenty of sunshine. She was diagnosed in 2007.
Find it hard to believe that breast feeding would be the cause.

In December 2009, experts from 47 countries from the vascular community (including Zamboni) agreed to categorise CCSVI as a type of truncular venous malformations.

These type of malformations are known to be congenital, which develop between the third and fifth months during pregnancy. (This agreement can be found at):

If I'm reading this correctly, then you are born with CCSVI.

Here something taken from Wikipedia, not the most reliable source in terms of medical issues:

The outcome of a congenital disorder will depend on complex interactions between the pre-natal deficit and the post-natal environment. Animal studies indicate that the mother's (and possibly the father's) diet, vitamin intake, and glucose levels prior to ovulation and conception have long-term effects on fetal growth and adolescent and adult disease.

Interesting thought, but you'd really have to define what "breastfed" means, since there are so many potential ways to define it. Did the baby get the colostrum? Was the baby *exclusively* breastfed? For what duration? For how long did the baby nurse each time? How much of the hindmilk did they get, which is where all the healthy fat is? Etc., etc., etc. You could go crazy sorting it out. :-)

Good point maybe the duration and extent have something to do with rhe durstion snd extent of MS

what if: since ccsvi is genetic, the mom may well have some ccsvi abnormalities as well; breast-feeding contributes to fatigue; the mom who already has some chronic fatigue may be unable to breast-feed as long; that child grows up to have ccsvi not because of being breast-fed a shorter amount of time but simply because of the genetic factor.

(I breastfed baby #3 a full year, because he was the only one I didn't have an MS relapse after the birth.)
