Because October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it’s even more crucial to stay up to date on news related to the disease and women’s health in general. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention state that 200,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in the U.S. each year and, of them, about 40,000 die from the disease.
There are many resources out there explaining how simple lifestyle changes among women can lower their risk of developing breast cancer. These changes include proper nutrition, avoiding hormone therapies, staying in shape and more.
This article details the research provided by Dr. Marian Neuhouser, Ph.D, RD from Seattle’s Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center about healthy living and breast cancer risk.
Life Line Screening is dedicated to providing a proactive approach to health. Through screenings for osteoporosis, heart disease, stroke and more, you can gain peace of mind about the state of your health. Learn more now.
