October is not only the beginning of the fall season and changing color of leaves, but it is also the month that you will see a lot of Pink! October is national Breast Cancer awareness month. This disease has touched all of our lives in some way. Here are three ways to help lower your risk factors, information is taken from the American Cancer Society website:
- Eat a healthy diet to help control weight, since being overweight or obese may raise breast cancer risk.
- Get regular physical activity. The American Cancer Society recommends 30 minutes a day, 5 or more days a week. Forty-five to 60 minutes a day is even better for reducing breast cancer risk.
- Limit the amount of alcohol you drink to no more than 1 drink per day. Alcohol is clearly linked to an increased risk of developing breast cancer.
