Clean the House!
Regular cleaning of your house may lower your risk of breast cancer. A study published in the January edition of The Journal of Cancer Epidemiology Biomarkers and Prevention (reported by Telegram.co.uk) stated that consistent, moderate physical activity provides a better protection against breast cancer than more strenuous – but less frequent sporting activity.
The Big “O”
A study published on the International Journal of Cancer website on May 17, 2005, states that omega-3 fatty acids, such as DHA and EPA, may curb the growth of breast cancer cells.
Those who ate highest amounts to total dietary fiber cut their risk of breast cancer by 50 percent in a UK study. Eating fiber-rich vegetables, fruit and whole grain foods may reduce risk of breast cancer in pre-menopausal women, but not in postmenopausal women, according to that study.
Young women can guard themselves against breast cancer according to a study published in The Journal of Breast Cancer Research. The study found that women with a mutation in the gene BRCA1 (which predisposes women to breast cancer), should avoid putting on weight in early adulthood. Such women were 65 percent less likely to develop breast cancer if they lost weight between 18 and 30 years of age.
