An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure

Pink Ribbon October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and you all probably noticed the abundance of pink posters, wrist bands and pink ribbons. Even the National Football League players were adorned with pink accents last month, and my local Post Office had a bunch of pink balloons in the entry way. All of this pink and its prevalence reminds us of this devastating disease and indicates that most people know somebody with this diagnosis.

Last year, there were an estimated 230,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer in this country and approximately 1 in 8 women in the United States are predicted to develop invasive breast cancer in her life time. These numbers are even larger when we include the non-invasive diagnoses.

So should we not change our way of thinking and change October to BREAST CANCER PREVENTION MONTH?

Awareness is certainly a good idea, but prevention is an even BETTER IDEA! What can we do about this epidemic? A proactive preventative approach is best. Much of the breast cancer awareness campaign focuses on encouraging women to get regular screenings to identify problems early but, as with most cancers, a proactive and preventive approach is best. Identifying risk factors for breast cancer and providing education to reduce these risk factors is the real key to true prevention.
So what can women do to achieve substantial protection against breast cancer?

  • Eat plenty of: Greens, beans, mushrooms, berries, and seeds.
  • Stay slim: Obesity is a significant risk factor for breast cancer. The American Institute for Cancer Research estimates that 17% of breast cancers (33,000 new cases per year) are due to excess weight alone, and women who are obese when diagnosed are more likely to die from breast cancer.
  • Avoid: Junk food, fast foods, high glycemic refined foods, such as white flour and sweets. Frequent high insulin levels caused by high glycemic foods are thought to promote growth and division of cancerous cells, and accordingly women with diabetes are 20% more likely to develop breast cancer!
  • Avoid: Synthetic folic acid in supplements and fortified refined foods. Synthetic folic acid, chemically different from food folate, is associated with increased risk of breast cancer, whereas natural food folate is associated with decreased risk.
  • Avoid: Mass factory farmed meats and dairy while minimizing animal food consumption over all. These animals are most often given antibiotics and growth promoting hormones, and environmental pollutants, which accumulate as pollutants in the fatty tissues of animals and are then passed on to us.
  • Minimize your family's exposure to endocrine disruptive hormones (EDCs). EDCs are synthetic chemicals that mimic, inhibit or alter the action of the body's natural hormones and we come into contact with them every day! The same goes for estrogen mimickers and Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs).
