Shocking New Study About Public Breastfeeding


People who don't want to see public breastfeeding may not be able to "just turn away." 

A hormone produced during breastfeeding may cause temporary atrophy of neck muscles.

In a new study published this week, researchers have found that a hormone called Protapriliá is released when a woman is actively nursing a child. This hormone can be detected up to 30 feet from where a mother is sitting. 

Preliminary findings are showing that Protapriliá causes a temporary atrophy in the Sternocleidomastoid and Trapezious (muscles responsible for turning the head). This hormone causes a person to involuntary turn their head towards the nursing mother and then for the neck muscles to lock up, preventing the person from turning away. While it will not cause permanent atrophy, the affects may get worse after each exposure. 


While the mother and child are unaffected by this hormone, those around them may find themselves unable to turn from the unwelcome sight. 


In light of this new research, state laws that now protect public breastfeeding may need to be changed to protect the public instead and events like the Nationwide Nurse-In that promote breastfeeding laws, may be barred from hosting their events.






People can still turn away if they don't want to see a mother breastfeeding! 

Don't ruin the joke!

Share with a friend or in your local breastfeeding groups and see how many people don't read to the end! 


Be sure to attend the Nationwide Nurse-In on April 28th to help bring attention to breastfeeding laws!
