Diet And Exercise Help Reduce Risk For Breast Cancer

It seems we all know at least one person who has fought the good fight. It could be a co-worker, family or friend. And each time you’ve heard about their diagnosis, you start to think about your own risk.  October is a month dedicated to not only supporting  those who have bravely battled breast cancer, but it’s a month dedicated to awareness and arming oneself with knowledge on one’s own risk factors.

Genetics play a role. If you have a mother, aunt, grandmother who has had breast cancer, you may carry the BRCA genetic mutation that puts you at higher risk. But what are some other factors that we can control and ultimately reduce your chance? A girl’s two best friends; diet and exercise.Making wise food choices and including exercise daily will greatly reduce the risk of breast cancer.


Breast Cancer Awareness Month is sponsored by Dr. Gagliardi of Obstetrical Associates, a Southcoast Health Systems affiliated practice. Dr. Gagliardi and his team of associates have access to the latest technology and high quality care. Click here for cancer care information.
