Question and answer
Q: Lifestyle choices you can make in your life to decrease your modifiable risk factors for this disease colon cancer
A: Some things you can't avoid when it comes to breast cancer risk, such as your age, genetic makeup and environmental exposures. [ But other breast cancer risk factors are well within your control.Among the easiest things to control are what you eat and drink and how active you are. Here are some strategies that may help you decrease your risk of breast cancer: Limit alcohol. A strong link exists
between alcohol consumption and breast cancer. The type of alcohol consumed ? wine, beer or mixed drinks ? seems to make no difference. To help protect against breast cancer, limit alcohol to less than one drink a day or avoid alcohol completely.Consider limiting fat in your diet. Results from the Women's Health Initiative low-fat diet study suggest a slight decrease in risk of invasive breast cancer for women who eat a low-fat diet. But the effect is modest at best.Avoid exposure to pesticides. The molecular structure of some pesticides closely resembles that of estrogen. This means they may attach to receptor sites in your body. Nothing you do will guarantee your life will be cancer-free. But if you practice healthy habits and consult your doctor about extra measures you can take, you will at least reduce your risk of this potentially fatal disease. ]
