If there’s a history of breast cancer
in your family, there’s a strong chance you’ll get it too.
But there’s hope.
And genetic testing could soon pinpoint exactly why your breast cancer
developed, which will help with deciding on a treatment plan.
Sign of the times: Soon a blood test will prove if your breast cancer’s likely to return or not
Because the genetic testing will also show whether the breast cancer is likely to be banished for good or if you’ll need pre-emptive treatment to stop it from returning, says Australia’s News.com
So you’ll soon be able to tell if you’re at risk of developing breast cancer at all, then take action to prevent it.
All it’ll take is a blood test. Then you can follow a tailor-made treatment programme, based on your individual genetic make-up and how susceptible you are to breast cancer recurrence, says FSP Health
And until this is available, you can make some simple lifestyle changes to lower your breast cancer risk.
If you know what makes you more likely to develop breast cancer, you’ll be better able to avoid these risk factors.
The secret’s revealed: Here’s what puts you at risk of developing breast cancer
“Unhealthy body weight, unbalanced diet and lack of exercise
are responsible for 90% of cancers,” says FSP Health
So in addition to your monthly self-breast exam, you can minimise your risk of developing breast cancer by living a healthy lifestyle.
Include tofu and red wine in your breast-cancer preventing diet!
Early intake of soy from whole soy foods like miso, tofu and soybeans also plays a protective role against breast cancer and decreases the recurrence of breast cancer, says the Huffington Post
This means all you have to do is eat high fibre, low fat
foods and tofu, drink lots of fresh clean water, and make sure you get lots of exercise
And don’t avoid red wine, as red wine contains the same chemicals used for treatment of breast cancer in post-menopausal women, says FSP Health
There you have it. Simple diet changes that’ll boost your overall health and minimise your risk of developing breast cancer.
