One way to prevent the risk of breast cancer is with a healthy lifestyle change, some of which can be done with the 7 following way:
The experts say, become more active will reduce a woman's risk of developing breast cancer. Physical activity or exercise is believed to reduce the number of fat cells, which are capable of releasing the hormones estrogen and testosterone as the trigger for the onset of tumors. Even the head of public health at Breakthrough Breast Cancer, the UK, Eluned Hughes said, that women should perform physical activity for 30 minutes a day, in any form of activities including homework.
For women who breastfeed for a year during his life turned out to have 5% less likely to develop breast cancer compared to women who never breastfed at all. According to the statistical analysis conducted by the World Cancer Research Fund, the longer a woman breast-feeding, the lower the risk of breast cancer. This may be due, that breastfeeding can reduce levels of bad hormones associated with cancer in the blood of a woman.
Reduce drinking alcoholic beverages
Frequent consumption of alcohol has been known to increase a woman's risk of developing breast cancer. According to experts, reduce or even stop taking alcoholic beverages is very useful to counteract the growth of breast cancer cells in women.
Reduce night work
A Danish study revealed that women who work 3 nights or more during a week in 6 years had 2 times greater risk of developing breast cancer. While the Health and Safety Executive in the UK is still doing research is scheduled to be completed in 2015 to better determine the relationship of night work for women with breast cancer. But some experts also believe that working at night can lead to an unhealthy lifestyle that is capable of developing breast cancer, such as irregular eating and become less active.
Reducing cholesterol levels
According to Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, U.S., women who take statins (cholesterol lowering drugs) for 10 years to develop a two-fold risk of developing invasive ductal carcinoma, a type of breast cancer is the most common. This may be due, because long-term use of statins can damage certain chemical pathways that lead to tumor growth. While other studies have revealed that taking statins in the short term have a protective effect against breast cancer in a long time. Implementing a healthy diet, exercising and taking nutritional omega-3 fatty acids are also known to reduce cholesterol levels which can lead to breast cancer.
Avoid unhealthy chemicals
Nutritionists warn, do not use food or beverage cans, and plastic containers to cook food in the microwave, because the chemicals contained in the container is such that estrogen can increase the risk of cancer. In addition, grilling or frying meat in high temperatures can also produce acrylamide (hazardous organic chemical compounds) that can increase the risk of cancer. Nutritionists advise to try to cook the meat at a low temperature and avoid cured meats.
Getting enough sunlight
Sunlight is the best way to increase vitamin D levels in the body are useful to reduce the risk of breast cancer. The results of laboratory tests conducted by researchers from Canada showed that breast cells can convert vitamin D into a hormone which is anti cancer.
