Reducing your Risk of Breast Cancer
75% of all women diagnosed with breast cancer have no family history! Our genes have not changed but the Western diet and lifestyle has deteriorated and our stress has increased. Although you cannot change the “genes” you were born with (i.e. family history), you can modify how your genes are expressed (i.e. epigenetics).
Obese women have a 60% higher chance of developing breast cancer and having a recurrence of their cancer. It is believed that 30% of breast cancers could have been prevented with lifestyle modification!!
