There wouldn’t be much that could be done about genetics if there were. One study said that handedness might be linked to an increased risk of breast cancer. Well, there isn’t much I can do about being. There are, however. Not. In broad, I am a big believer that although it cannot hurt but may help, it’s our obligation.
12. No Smoking
I was never a smoker if you do not count those three weeks in grade. One’s chances increase. It has a lot of other consequences.
11. Avoiding Red Meat
A study from Great Britain discovered that eating red meat increases the chance of developing breast cancer of a woman. It is another one that’s easy for me, having prevented it since and sworn off meat back.
10. Regular Weight Checking
It has long been recognized that fattier breast tissue is linked with a higher risk of breast cancer. Then that is worthy enough incentive for me if keeping my weight will help reduce the chance of getting breast cancer.
9. Taking vitamins and calcium supplements
Besides vitamin D, making multi-vitamins and calcium supplements appear to decrease the risk of breast cancer. One study demonstrated that vitamin supplements could lower the chance of breast cancer and calcium supplements can reduce the risk.
8. Making sure I get vitamin D (also called sunshine)
Vitamin D supports our bodies to absorb calcium and sustain normal blood levels of phosphorus and calcium. It may be found in several foods, including several kinds of fish, cod liver oil, eggs. It is believed that as little as 10 minutes of exposure can be useful. Studies reveal that vitamin D can induce.
7. Eating my veggies
Vegetable consumption was linked with a lower risk of a particular type of breast cancer called estrogen receptor-negative (ER-) breast cancer. I am lowering my breast cancer risk having joined a local CSA.
6. Eating organic foods and using products that are all-natural
I am a firm believer that the increase in cancer, allergies, asthma, and chronic diseases can be attributed that we are consuming. So I am reducing this concern for my loved ones and myself by using products and in our house whenever possible and eating organic.
5. Getting regular exercise
All of us know that exercise is essential for health and weight control. Moreover, it may be fun! For the last year or so I look forward to every course and each and have taken up spinning. Girls who do regular exercise have a reduced risk of breast cancer. In fact, girls are around 25% not as likely to get breast cancer.
4. Drinking coffee
Coffee drinkers have a reduced chance of breast cancer. Fantastic news, is not it? Drinking coffee can decrease the probability of a recurrence of breast cancer. I believe I will take another cuppa.
3. Getting mammograms
Mammogram day is not accurately my favorite day of the year. Not only because of what they will find or of the discomfort that is temporary. I have often wondered if the radiation that was repeated does more damage than good. Research shows that women tend to overemphasize the amount of radiation. Digital mammograms are proved to possess an exposure compared to the sort of film mammogram. Moreover, 3D mammograms increase early detection of breast cancer. For those women (such as myself) who have denser breast tissue, this an excellent option.
2. Doing regular breast self-exams
Many women with breast cancer discovered it themselves not to be doing. Hers was found by my friend Amanda at age 32 as I wrote recently. She would not have required a mammogram for eight years. Since it was another friend found hers just a couple weeks after having her yearly mammogram.
1. Supporting the cause
This one ought to proceed with care. In other words, look out for pinkwashing. Rather than getting a product which ignites a tiny percentage of proceeds why don’t you encourage a brand that donates 100 percent of profits? Why not contribute directly, even better?
You can also support the cause using your time. It was such an overwhelming experience. I was pleased to be in the company of people who had been there for themselves in addition to walkers that were there for others. Next year, I look forward to hearing their stories and being motivated by their strength.
Is this somewhat that you are making a conscious struggle about? If so, what measures are you taking?
