5 ways to reduce your risk of breast cancer


Breast cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers among women. 1 in 8 women will develop the disease in her lifetime. There’s no way to completely prevent it, but these 5 tips may help reduce your risk. Studies show that women who exercise just 2 1/2 hours each week cut their risk by as much as 30 percent. A brisk 30-minute walk, 5 days a week is a good start. If your BMI is more than 25, especially after menopause, you’re at a higher risk. Losing just 5 to 10 percent of excess weight can improve your health. Try for 5 or more servings of fresh fruits and vegetables a day, along with whole grains and fiber. Limit your intake of red meat. Women who have just 3 alcoholic drinks per week have a 15 percent higher risk of breast cancer. And don’t smoke – or if you do, make a plan to quit. While a mammogram can’t prevent breast cancer, it can catch it early when it’s most curable. Start screening at age 40, or talk to your doctor about a time that’s right for you.

  1. Breast Cancer research. China wants abortion and does it wholesale. In China it is legal and wanted by both government and people. For China any information to the contrary is an unwanted fact. But on the 28th November 2013 Dr. Yubei Huang et al. in a meta-analysis which combined 36 studies on the ABC link (Abortion Breast Cancer) in China found the overall risk of developing breast cancer among women who had at least one induced abortion was significantly increased by 44%more than one 76%, three abortions 89%. The Huang study had followed right on the heels of two new studies this year from India and Bangladesh, studies which reported breast cancer risk increases of unprecedented magnitude: over 600% and over 2,000%, respectively, among women who had any induced abortions.” Breast cancer, as all disease in India, is regarded as the effects of bad karma from a previous life. There is no compassion because it is what the person deserves and to help sufferers only means they will have to return for another incarnation to see it through.
