How To Avoid Breast Cancer?
On this Women’s Day, it is quite important to check out the things that hurt women more and take precautions and preventive measures against these perils. The pink ribbon, which is strongly associated with the urgency for us to donate and contribute to finding a breast cancer cure, is something that I would like to recall this very day. But let’s not forget that prevention is the best cure, therefore, the most important thing we can do today is to realize and become aware of risk factors of breast cancer.
7 Healthy Breast Habits
Here is a list of things you can do as preventive measures for Breast Cancer.
Check Labels Of Your Cosmetics And Self-Care Products
Cancerous breast biopsies have shown higher accumulations of iron, nickel, chromium, zinc, cadmium, mercury and lead than non-cancerous biopsies. Don’t be fooled when you see the words natural ingredients or mineral oils. Companies know the kinds of words we want to see. Unfortunately, products on the market today don’t necessarily provide what they promise. Visit the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics to learn more about the products you are using.
Limit Your Screen Time At Night
Did you know the light from your cell phone and computer screen can disrupt your melatonin production?
Check Your Plastics
BPA is a carbon-based synthetic compound that is used in plastics and in the lining of food cans, like, beans, tomatoes, etc. It has been linked to breast cancer due to its ability to exhibit estrogen like properties. If you are still microwaving your lunch in plastic containers, now is a good time to switch to glass containers.
Limit Alcohol Consumption
Alcohol has been statistically linked to a higher risk of breast cancer and that risk goes up with every drink we take. It is a heavy load to the liver, our main detox organ, and can dampen the function of our immune system. Therefore think before you drink.
Stimulate The Lymph
The lymph nodes located in the under arm collect toxins and dead cells helping to keep our breast tissue in good health. Since the lymphatic system is the only system in the body that doesn’t have a pump, it’s important that we lend it a hand. Bring yourself to a sweat at least 3-4 times a week.
Embrace Your Female Networks
One of the studies on breast cancer patients found that women who had fewer social connections before their breast cancer diagnoses were twice as likely to die from breast cancer than women who started off with strong social connections. This same study found that those women who continued their journey alone after diagnoses, ended up 4 times as likely to die of breast cancer in comparison to women who gained support from their friends. Therefore, if female networks are this powerful for women with breast cancer, then embracing our intuitive urge to engage in girl talk is a natural way to keep our health in check.
There Is No Place For Fear
Just one fearful thought can stimulate the stress response, send our body into panic mode, and give rise to a lot of negative emotions. This process is similar to the inflammation response. It is important that we choose thoughts that make us feel relaxed and nourished.
Be aware of the ingredients of your deodorant. Swap it with the safest deodorant on earth. Baking soda. That's right, baking soda. Not baking powder. It alkalized and detox your armpit areas. Thus protect your lymph nodes.
Also cut a lime in 1/2& use as deodorant Baggie the lime & refrigerate& reuse for several days. Really works & you don't smell from the lime.

I don't use deodorant because of aluminium. I use alun stone or baking soda with limon and better is to shave your armpits cuz the hair keeps the bad odors
You could go on ebay and just type aluminum free deodorants. Something with tea tree or hemp is good etc.
check this forever living products brand which advise by Jessie Sinogo, Made with stabilized Aloe Vera gel, this gentle blend of ingredients contains none of the harmful anti-perspirant aluminum salts found in many other deodorants on the market.

Women need to seriously look into their deodorant they spray under their arm. Best to stay away from all them aluminum sprays and try to use natual essential oil sprays.
Would that it were so easy. Healthy habits mentioned here, and sure, make sense. But as a survivor, no one ever will know the cause of anyone's cancer (combination of many factors, including genetic,environmental, exposures throughout life to things we don't even realize, AND lifestyle.) Lifestyle is the only one we can control, so sure, let's go for it. Those of us who have had cancer spend many hours wondering what we did or didn't do that may have contributed. We can't control everything. If only having healthy habits alone could keep it at bay!
