Breast Cancer Prevention Part 1

Although there is no sure way to prevent breast cancer, there are many ways to lower you risk for cancer. Over the next few days I'll share with you what I have learned. Many of these cancer risk-lowering steps also lower your risk for diabetes, obesity, and heart disease.

According to, "If you limit alcohol use, exercise regularly, and stay at a healthy weight, you are decreasing your risk of getting breast cancer. Women who breast-feed for at least several months may also reduce their breast cancer risk. Not using post-menopausal hormone therapy (PHT) can also help you avoid raising your risk."
