Improve Your Breast Health

In addition to getting an annual clinical breast exam and screening mammogram (for women 40 and older), you can take action to reduce your risk of breast cancer by following the simple guidelines below:

Plant foods – try for 5-10 servings a day of fruits and vegetables

Reduce alcohol consumption – only 1 or 2 drinks a week

Exercise 5 times a week for 30 minutes

Vitamin D supplement – take the minimal requirement of 2000 IU daily

Examine your breasts monthly – know your breasts so you can identify changes

No tobacco – smokers have a 50% increase rate of breast cancer

Take care of yourself – reduce stress by exercising, reading, listening to music, breathing techniques

Ideal Body Mass Index (BMI) < 25 – obese women are more likely to have advanced breast cancer

Olive oil for cooking – 9 grams daily reduces risk of breast cancer

Nutrition – eat a balanced diet rich in plant food & fiber
