Ladies! Let's SAVE our OWN Breasts!

Prevention IS THE CURE for Breast Cancer! The headlines should read what studies are concluding! Breast Cancer is not from bad luck, bad genes but rather from our bad habits, lifestyle and typical modern fast food, high fat diet! Perhaps also from compromised TAP water but when are we going to listen?? Can we also question too many years using a estrogen supplement for birth control or menopause?? WHAT about the headlines about too much synthetic estrogen and its known cancer risk!!!

You figure it out. 30% is linked to our smoking habit. Now 30% is linked to our alcohol consumption and you got it 30-40%% is linked to the standard american high fat, high sugar, high salt diet! If we do all 3 we have increased our own odds of getting breast cancer by 90-100%! GEE DOC, WHY DID THIS HAPPEN TO ME? HAS YOUR DOCTOR ALREADY GIVEN YOU THESE PREVENTION FACTS? So how about we turn it all around and reduce our risk by 90-100 % and NOT get Breast cancer! Lets keep the 'girls' happy! And Pretty! Save yourself NOW!
Most recently in the news is that smoking 1 pack of cigarettes a day is equally raising our risk of breast cancer to 30% as also consuming 3 or more alcohol drinks per day raises our risk of 30%. Who then is doing both?? Throwing in bad nutritional habits? How many candy/donut eaters do you hear at the office brag about not eating their vegetables? (IN FACT, who is eating the required 5-9 per day to PREVENT cancer or heart disease or diabetes?) Do you eat a daily DARK GREEN leafy vegetable for cancer PREVENTION?

The National Cancer Institute has warned us that 80% of ALL cancers are PREVENTABLE!!!!! How come we can't hear that from our own healthcare professional when it's us one on one???? What we get instead from that office and the media is the aura of mystery that keeps billions of dollars flowing annually on the careers devoted to the details surrounding the "care" of the problem!

My favorite charity working toward getting the truth out is the American Institute of Cancer Research. We in this society will probably never see a "cure" from a magic pill. The cure is prevention and reversing the risk that our family history may embark.

Above all: DO NOT SMOKE!!!!!

So, for those of us who refuse to change our harmful deeds that will, in time, do us in......and they will sooner than we will like....Let's do keep going back for that annual or bi-annual MAMMOGRAM so we can at least have "early detection" that can possibly save our lives in lieu, of saving our BREASTS! Let's save ourselves especially if a family history factor adds in the mix which only raises our risk factor by 5-9%! The rest we do on our own!

Also consider this ladies: how much estrogen medication have you been given over the years? This pushes us to the top of the risk factor! Estrogen dominance is an out of balance problem at the root of many illnesses in women's health issues!
The beauty of todays medicine and excellent healthcare is the process of breast reconstruction and what a plastic surgeon can do for you after the needed masectomy! They can actually make your breasts even BETTER than the old sagging ones with immediate implants placed in some cases the day of the masectomy and then nipple reconstruction and then nipple tatooing!. After the scars fade WOW you can LOOK great again! So there is HOPE after diagnosis too with early detection.
We have come a long way baby!
