Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Posted by Purity Cosmetics on

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and one of the most important things you can do to protect yourself is is prevention. The main 3 ways to prevent breast cancer are:

1. Live a healthy lifestyle. Eat healthy foods, be physically active, maintain a healthy wait, limit alcohol and don’t smoke. Alcohol use, long-term smoking, and obesity all increase the risk of breast cancer. Maintaing a healthy diet high in vegetables and fruit, cutting out sugared drinks, and increasing physical activity reduces the overall breast-cancer risk by 10 to 30 percent.

2. Be vigilant about self examinations. Conducted at least once a month, breast self-exams can help you know what is normal for you so you can report any changes to your doctor. Here’s how you can conduct your own breast exam: http://www.nationalbreastcancer.org/breast-self-exam

3. Avoid exposure to outside elements that can increase the risk of breast cancer. This includes avoiding radiation (medical-imaging methods), environmental pollution (gasoline fumes, vehicle exhaust), and harmful chemicals that are present in every day products (like your lotions, deodorants, shampoos).
