Breast Cancer Prevention Steps

American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR), recently issued a report updates the previous report that was launched in 2007. This report describes the relationship between lifestyle and risk of breast cancer. It is said that the body weight, regular physical activity, and reduction of alcohol intake is the foundation of your lifestyle to avoid breast cancer surveillance. There are many types of breast cancer, and there are many factors that can trigger breast cancer. However, a certain lifestyle can affect the results. Here's what you can do to reduce the risk of breast cancer.

Healthy weight
The report that was launched in 2007 and shows that excess weight in a convincing increase breast cancer risk when entering menopause. As weight increases a woman's body, also increases the risks. Accumulate fat in the waist is suspected to have links to the risk of breast cancer.

Research in 2009 of breast cancer found in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute (JNCI) also said that as a weight-control measures, especially in reducing the risk of breast cancer. Excess body fat appears to increase the level of estrogen during menopause phase (which explains why breast cancer associated with estrogen-sensitive type). Increased body fat also leads to increased insulin and similar compounds growers factors insulin, which increases the risk of breast cancer, estrogen-negative type.

Physical activity
AICR report also states the relationship between regular physical activity with reduced risk of breast cancer during the menopause, and possibly before the menopause. In his analysis, the researchers found that the activity (exercise) physical for 2 hours per day can reduce the risk of breast cancer. Other reports also said that women who perform regular physical activity with high-intensity lower the risk of breast cancer in those who are not under active physically as much as 14-20 percent.

Physical activity is potentially protect themselves from breast cancer by strengthening the immune system, and reduce the levels of reproductive hormones and hormones related to insulin, and through their impact on body weight control. No denying that activity has a major impact, though how many and what types of activities that can provide optimal protection is also included in the count. Mild activity for at least 30 minutes per day is a general health recommendations.

Limiting alcohol intake
Not only the above two things, restrictions on alcohol intake is one step that can significantly reduce the risk of breast cancer, the type of pre-and post-menopausal. The combined research has consistently shown a 5-10 percent increase in risk of breast cancer with alcohol intake of the daily standard. For example, 340 ml or 142 ml of wine only considered dangerous enough. Another report from JNCI also said, that among women who entered menopause phase, those who have a habit of drinking alcohol showed a greater risk of breast cancer than those who did not drink it.

One thing is for sure can reduce the risk of breast cancer pre-and post-menopausal is to provide milk for children.

Beside the four things mentioned above, JNCI report says that women can reduce the risk of post-menopausal breast cancer by controlling the daily intake, especially reducing fatty foods. Highly recommended to eat a lot of natural foods, like vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and seeds.
