"Breast Cancer is the most common cancer in women in the United States, aside from skin cancer. An estimated 40,170 women are expected to die from this disease in 2009 alone. Today there are about 2.5 million breast cancer survivors living in the United States." You can learn more HERE.
Here are a few Diet & Exercise Tips for Breast Cancer Prevention:
- Limit Alcohol - Consider limiting alcohol to one drink or less per day.
- Maintain a Healthy Weight - There is a clear link between obesity and breast cancer. This is especially true if you gain weight later in life. Experts speculate that estrogen production in fatty tissue may be the link between obesity and breast cancer.
- Stay Physically Active - Staying physically active helps in maintaining weight and refraining from obesity.
- Consider Limiting Fat in Your Diet - Most importantly, stay away from Saturated Fats.
