Breast exams

Breast cancer has turned into a potential danger that affects one in nine women. 

According to the National Health Statistics in the US, only 61% of women over age 39 have had a mammogram in the past two years.  Those over 65 years are the ones who take the least care, even though they are at the greatest risk of developing breast cancer.

Additionally, many women over 40 years old do not perform self-examinations regularly because they are scared of finding something bad and prefer to remain in ignorance, according to Dr. Janet Osuch.  However, the survival rate if it is diagnosed early is 90%.  All experts agree that it is necessary for women to begin having mammograms after age 40.  The Cancer Prevention Society recommends having this test once a year.  The Cancer Institute recommends every two years and after age 50 every year. 

According to the National Cancer Institute, less than 25% of American eat the proper foods to to protect against cancer.  According to some scientific studies, green cruciferous vegetables, such as cabbage, broccoli and brussel sprouts can contribute to preventing breast cancer, neutralizing the work of estrogen that accelerates the growth of tumors.
A mineral present in cherries, grapes and strawberries can counteract the effect of carcinogenic agents that, when not protected against, can cause malignant tumors.
