breast cancer

Women are amazing creatures, they make the world worth living for men. Yea, they may make men go gaga sometimes, but without women, men’s lives would be incomplete. The mere sight of a beautiful lady turns on the creativity in man.

Despite these great things about women, there are some things they dread. They often have hormonal imbalances, experience monthly periods, sometimes have breakouts, etc. As they mature to the age of puberty, they are happy that they now have breasts which men love the sight of. But as they grow and mature, the word breast cancer makes some of them fear especially when they know someone who has breast cancer or has died of it.

Recently, a Nigerian Actress and star of ‘Omoge Campus’, Aisha Abimbola was said to have died of breast cancer. There are many other people who have also died from this disease. The question now is, what is the cure, or at least prevention? In this article, I attempt to share 5 ways Breast Cancer and Probably any other cancer can be prevented. Do you love any girl, lady or woman, share this with them.

Number One – Excercise Regularly

Diseases only thrive in states where they are allowed to. We know that there are rare occasions, but exercise is one way to keep your body fit and able to fight against any cancer that might want to build.

The American Cancer Society recommends getting at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity or 75 minutes of vigorous activity each week. (Or a combination of both.)

Number Two – Eat Right!

Eating right is not the same as eating expensively. Your meal should have the right combination of nutrients your body needs to fight. Vegetables and Fruits would help a great deal and often good water intake.

Number Three – Watch Your Weight!

Eating right is not an excuse to be overweight, you need to watch your weight. Being overweight or obese increases breast cancer risk. Women who are overweight tend to have higher levels of insulin, another hormone. Higher insulin levels have also been linked to some cancers, including breast cancer.

If you notice that you have the tendency to be overweight, make the gym your friend, your best friend actually – for your health sake and that of those that love you.

Number Four – Actually Live!

It has been said before many more people die from the fear of death than death itself. A lot of people get so fearful that any small thing, they think its one disease or the other, Have a dream, pursue your goals and achieve them. Have something to live for. There are people who have had diseases that were supposed to kill them but lived till their old age. So my dear, don’t be afraid, actually live!

NumberFive – Avoid or limit Hormone replacement therapy.

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) was used more often in the past to help control night sweats, hot flashes, and other symptoms of menopause. But researchers now know that postmenopausal women who take a combination of estrogen and progestin may be more likely to develop breast cancer. Breast cancer risk appears to return to normal within 5 years after stopping the combination of hormones.

Hope these five prevention tips helps you or someone on your list. Don’t read alone, share with someone that might need this. Remember, prevention is the greatest cure! See you on the other side.
