Breast Cancer Awareness
Hello everyone, as some of you may know, it’s “Breast Cancer Awareness” month and I’d thought we’d talk about some of things that we could do to avoid breast cancer.
First off, let’s talk about exercise. It’s no secret that exercising every day is good for us. According to research, woman who walk an hour a day decrease their chances by 14% of getting breast cancer and those who work out “vigorously” decreae their chances by 25%. Not huge differences, but every little bit will help.
Now lets focus on what we put in our bodies. The most important foods for reducing breast cancer are broccoli and cauliflower. Those vegetables help eliminate carcinogens, which damages your cells. Drinking coffee is another good way to reduce your chances of breast cancer as well as good fiber and sea vegetables, such as brown or red seaweed that’s been known to inhibit cancer cells.
Those are just the easiest ways to take steps in preventing breast cancer without completely changing the way we live.
