CANCER IS NOT ONLY A HEREDITARY DISEASE
The influence of heredity when it comes to cancer is only 5-10 percent. Not having an immediate family member suffering from cancer does not reduce your risk.
The following are steps you can take to lower your risk.
Not only smoking but even passive smoking increases the risk of breast cancer by 60%.
Women who consume more red meat have the highest risk of breast cancer. Consume food that is rich in fibre and low in fat.
Working out for half an hour at least 4 to 5 days in a week reduces the risk of breast cancer by 30 to 50 percent.
PESTICIDES ARE TOXIC
This might be common knowledge but most of us do not know that there is a risk of it damaging us in a cellular level.
Stress not only affects your mental health but also your physical health by suppressing your immune system.
SIZE DOESN’T MATTER!
Contrary to popular belief breast size does not play a role in the impact of breast cancer. But higher levels of oestrogen caused by obesity increases the risk of breast cancer.
MEN CAN GET BREAST CANCER!
Although it is very rare when comparing to women even men run the risk of breast cancer. About 1500 to 2000 new cases of breast cancer in men are reported every year.
