Lifewatch: Morning Sickness

NEW YORK -- Morning sickness is probably one of the worst things about pregnancy, but according a study, that queasiness is actually good for you.

Research shows it could lower your risk of developing breast cancer, which is good news for moms-to-be who suffer morning sickness.

The University of Buffalo in New York found that pregnant women with morning sickness may be 30% less likely to develop breast cancer later in life.

For women with severe nausea, the chance of developing the cancer was even less.

Experts can't pinpoint the exact reasons behind the study, but they know the high levels of hormones during pregnancy that cause the queasiness are what lowers the risk of breast cancer.
