Breast Health is vitally important for women. The rate of breast cancer continues to rise. Now, one in eight women will develop breast cancer. Only 10% of breast cancers are genetically determined, so 90% of breast cancers are theoretically preventable. Women need to know that breast cancer is a preventable disease. Breast cancer does not have to be a sentence. You can become pro-active and decrease your risk factors for developing the disease.
Clinical studies have shown an associated increased risk of breast cancer with Vitamin D deficiency, iodine deficiency, hormone imbalance, obesity, lack of exercise, excess alcohol use, and exposure to aluminum in deodorants. The manner in which your body metabolizes estrogen can impact your risk of developing breast cancer. Wearing underwire bras can increase your risk for developing breast cancer. Lymphatic blockage in the breast may also increase your risk factors.
Many factors contribute to the overall risk of developing cancer. Try to limit as many risk factors as possible.
