Eating a variety of nutritious, colourful fruits and vegetables daily is key to preventing and lowering your risk of developing breast and other women’s cancers fuelled by obesity.
“Women should minimise the processed foods they eat from a box,”
“Natural, whole and fresh foods are always the best choices.”
One in eight women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime, but the good news is, if caught early, it can be treated effectively. Starting at age 40, go for an annual mammogram to check breast health and in between mammograms, perform monthly breast self-exams.
Colon cancer is the third largest cause of cancer death among women. “At age 50, women need to make sure they start getting their regular colonoscopy screening,” As catching any abnormal colon polyp growths early can prevent cancer from further developing or spreading.
“Cancers caused by smoking are preventable if you put the cigarettes down,”
More than 13% of women are still smoking cigarettes in the US, despite the evidence that it leads to premature death, heart disease, heart attack and stroke, and lung and other cancers.
