Reduce your breast cancer risk

The American Institute for Cancer Research tells us there are three big things we can do to reduce cancer risk.

  1. Move more
  2. Weigh Less
  3. Eat Well

Exercise is proving to be not only helpful for reducing risk of re-occurrence but also for general prevention. Several recent studies suggest that higher levels of physical activity are associated with a reduced risk of the cancer coming back, and a longer survival after a cancer diagnosis," said Kerry Courneya, PhD, professor and Canada Research Chair in Physical Activity and Cancer at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada.

Weight gain is more related with breast cancer in post menopausal women. This is probably due to the estrogen produced by fat cells.

There are so many studies now on eating well and cancer prevention that we hardly feel we need to talk about it anymore. Literally what you eat becomes your cellular intelligence. The phyto-nutrients in food help your cells in every possible way.

Next we will talk about how adding your mental energy and thinking to these three things might multiply their efforts!
