Are You High Risk For Breast Cancer
Woman are higher risk for breast cancer than men, being a woman is the highest risk factor for developing breast cancer. There are about 190,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer per year, there also are 60,000 cases on non-invasive breast cancer per year for American women.
Your age is another high risk factor for developing any type of cancer, about two out of every three invasive breast cancer cases are found in women older than fifty-five years old. Family history increases your risk of developing this type of cancer, so when there is a history of cancer in your family a women’s cancer risks double.
Does genetics really mean anything when it comes to your risk of developing cancer, and recent studies has found that five to ten percent of breast cancers are thought to be hereditary. The reason for this is the passing of abnormal genes from parent to child, so if this type of cancer is common in your family you should be more observant for possible symptoms?
Women who have been diagnosed with certain benign breast condition other than breast cancer may be at a higher risk of developing breast cancer in the future, when you are a white woman you are at a higher risk than other races.
Being overweight and obese may increase your risk for breast cancer, this risk increases for women overweight after menopause. The medical professionals give being overweight a high risk for many of our diseases today, American’s are the most overweight country and the country with the poorest health.
Medical professionals believe breastfeeding can lower your risk of developing breast cancer, this is thought to be especially true for women who breastfeed for longer than one year. Could the fact the majority of American women today don’t breast feed really be a factor for women to develop breast cancer, what could breast feeding have to do with women developing cancer?
Studies show women who started having their menstrual cycle younger than the age of twelve years old have a higher risk of developing breast cancer, these studies also show women who go through menopause older than fifty-five years old are also at a higher risk?
Are you a regular user of alcoholic beverages, the medical profession now are saying women who drink alcoholic beverages regularly are at a higher risk especially women who drink beer, wine, and hard liquors? Of course smoking increases your risks as well, so could you be wondering if these studies are right or just excuses for the outbreak in cancer?
Research shows their is a link between regular exercise and cancer, these studies show women who participate in moderate to intense exercise four to seven hours per week are a lower risk for cancer? Even second-hand cigarette smoke exposure puts you at a higher risk, how does one today avoid many of these risk factors?
Do you experience low vitamin D levels if this is the case the majority of American’s men and women are at high risk for developing cancer? I do believe our diets is a strong contributor for us to develop cancer, and when you consume a healthy diet with the majority of your diet being plant-based foods, I do believe your immune system is stronger for you to fight off cancer. Diet alone will not prevent anyone from developing cancer, and even our plant-based foods contain chemicals such as pesticides which I feel can cause cancer.

What Is On My Mind Today?
What about the mercury in our fish and seafood, I do believe fish and seafood is not as healthy as we are led to believe? I also believe the preservatives in our processed foods is a big contributor to our diseases and disorders today, what about our lawn and garden products and I am especially concerned about the sunscreen and cosmetic products we use today? Do you use air fresheners and scented candles, how do we know these products are not another contributor for us developing cancer? What gets me the most is men and women both use most of these products regularly, even people who are stick thin and exercise regularly are developing cancer?
