Tips to Help Reduce the Risk of Getting Breast Cancer

Did you know that October is breast cancer awareness month? The month is dedicated to shedding more light on breast cancer, as well as raising funds that go into more research to reduce breast cancer risk, improve diagnosis, and develop a treatment for the disease. Activities geared towards achieving the above results comprise the conspicuously worn pink ribbon (pink lighting on buildings), organized walks/ run, and other meeting/ conferences. Since 2009, the third week of October is especially dedicated to acknowledging male breast cancer since breast cancer also affects men although not as much as it does women.

Scientists, physicians, and community partners in the Breast Cancer and the Environment Research Program (BCERP), which is supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), study the effects of environmental exposures on breast cancer risk later in life. They created a mother-daughter toolkit
( mothers can use to talk to daughters about steps to take together to reduce risk.

These practices (although not 100% guaranteed) can help reduce the risk of getting breast cancer. Please share this with a woman you love.
