PREVENTION / PREVENTION
There are a number of ways that you can decrease your chances of getting breast
1. LIFESTYLE AND DIET
Studies have shown that if you eat a lot of meat, lipids, and animal fats, but only
small quantities of vegetables and fruits, then the risk of getting breast cancer
increases. In order to prevent that, you should eat more vegetables, cereals, and
fruits, while reducing your intake of meat, lipids and animal fat. Fish, veal, and
poultry are good sources of protein and contain less fat. Stem-full vegetables,
such as cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower, are the best.
2. FAMILY HISTORY
If you have a family history of breast cancer, especially if your mother or sister
developed breast cancer at a young age, it is imperative that you adopt early detection
methods and go for regular check-ups.
3. HEREDITARY FACTORS
If you have a genetic mutation in BRCA1 and BRCA2, your risk of developing breast
cancer will increase. This only applies to a small percentage of women. If this
applies to you, you, your sisters, and your relatives should follow your doctor’s
instructions of early detection, starting at an early age, 10 years before the first
case in the family.
4. EFFECTS OF PESTICIDES AND INDUSTRIES
Indicators show that pesticides and industries may be responsible for many cases
of cancer, but scientific studies have not yet confirmed it.
