Preventing Breast Cancer

Breast cancer kills women

allmineOn average, breast cancer accounts for almost ten per cent of all cancer deaths in women, accounting for over half a million deaths in women world-wide, and almost one per cent of all deaths each year.

These are discouraging stats. They're made more discouraging when you consider that breast cancer is often preventable. While some cases are hereditary, more often than not, lifestyle, diet, exercise and other factors play a role in determining a woman's risk of developing breast cancer.

Knowledge is power, and with it comes the chance to improve health and save lives.

Breast cancer occurs most commonly in the breast's milk ducts, or the lining that supplies the ducts with milk. Eighty per cent of breast cancers are discovered when the carrier discovers a lump on her breast. Timing is crucial to a positive outcome. The earlier it's detected, the better the outlook for survival. Treatments for breast cancer include hormone therapy, chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.

Statistically, an American woman has 12.5 % chance of developing breast cancer in her lifetime, with a one in 35 chance of death. While genetics play a role in determining the likelihood of breast cancer, it's a minor cause, at five per cent. The most common cause of breast cancer, by far, is lifestyle. Excessive alcohol, smoking, lack of exercise and obesity, especially after menopause are leading causes of breast cancer in women.

Age is also a factor. Only five per cent of breast cancer patients are women under 40, so this makes it even more important to adopt healthy living habits when you're young.

The list of breast cancer-causing habits is extensive

Obesity, a recent study concluded that an added weight of 22 lbs after menopause increased breast cancer risk by 18%.

Alcohol and second hand smoke are also leading causes of breast cancer. Studies have conclusively found a link between women who consumed two units of alcohol each day increased their chances of developing breast cancer by 8% and increased proportionately for every additional drink. Second hand smoke, particularly in pre-menopause women, increased the likelihood of developing breast cancer later in life by an astounding 70%!

Many cosmetics and environmental poisons are also triggers for breast cancer. Parabens, formaldehyde

The list of breast cancer-preventing habits is extensive

You can start by eating mushrooms and drinking green tea. A recent study of over 2,000 women suggests that women who regularly ate mushrooms had a 50% lower rate of breast cancer. When combined with green tea, the risk was lowered by 90%.

In fact, studies show that women who make vegetables a staple of their diet, especially brassicas (broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale and Brussels sprouts),  show that women who consume one and a half servings of brassica vegetables every day have a 42% reduced risk of developing breast cancer. Brassica vegetable consumption works inversely to breast cancer risk. The more brassicas consumed, the lower the risk.

Breast Massage is widely accepted as a measure to help prevent breast cancer and maintain good breast health.

Massage has been scientifically proven to be beneficial for our general health and well-being, it has been proven to be effective in improving body functions and recovery from illness, therefore breast massage should be an essential part of every woman's self-care regime.
