Anne McTiernan from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, says women should never blame themselves when they develop breast cancer, but women who don't have the disease have the chance to lower their risk of having it.
She says only 5% to 10% of cases result from genetics and DNA mutations. The remaining cases develop because of other causes, including lifestyle.
But you have the chance to change that!
You can lower your risk of breast cancer by a whopping 25%.
Here are the two changes you can make, starting today…
Break the cycle of breast cancer with two lifestyle changes
Two of the main factors that lead to breast cancer
, besides genetics, are hormones and insulin.
