10 Simple Ways to Reduce Your Risk of Breast Cancer
Unfortunately, in the health care system we have today, we are told that there is actually very little we can do help ourselves to stay healthy. The general belief is that sooner or later some type of sickness or disease will happen to our bodies, and when it happens we will need doctors to “save” us through drastic surgery, pharmaceuticals, or even chemotherapy.
It really doesn’t have to be that way, however. There are many, many things you can do to lower your risk of developing many diseases, including breast cancer. There have been literally thousands and thousands of studies showing that simple lifestyle changes can tremendously lower the risk of developing many different types of cancer, as much as 50 per cent in some cases and even as much as 77 per cent.
Let’s take a look at the top 10 easy lifestyle changes you can make that can greatly reduce your risk of developing breast cancer.
1. Vitamin D
One of the easiest ways to reduce your risk of breast cancer is to optimize your vitamin D intake. You should strive to achieve at least 70 and preferably 100mg/ml, as this will drastically reduce your risk.
Safe exposure to sunlight is the best, most natural method, but the use of a tanning bed that uses an electronic ballast (NOT a magnetic one) is a good alternative. Ask your salon before you go; if they don’t know the answer, choose another tanning salon.
Either of these techniques is preferable to taking high dose pill supplements, because for those to work you would need to dramatically increase your vitamin K2 intake as well. Use the sun, whenever possible, for a safe, all natural way to get your vitamin D.
