1. Avoid Birth Control Pills

Women who currently use (or have recently used) birth control pills have a slightly increased risk of breast cancer. A pooled analysis of over 50 studies found a small increase in risk among women who were currently using the pill or had recently used it for 10 or more years. However, this excess risk disappeared 10 years after women stopped using the pill. (Susan G Komen, 2018) Naturally occurring estrogen and progesterone stimulate the development and growth of some cancers. Because birth control pills contain synthetic versions of these female hormones, they could potentially also increase cancer risk. (National Cancer Society, 2018)

2. Get Enough Vitamin D

Vitamin D has a great influence on 2000 odd genes in our bodies. Researcher Cedric F. Garland and team had completed the research which a total of 3,325 women aged 63, on average had took part and the data were collected in 2002-2017. The analysis revealed that people with higher blood concentration of vitamin D biomarker were exposed to a significantly lower risk of breast cancer (Medical News Today, 2018). So getting this supplement in the natural form is the best way to keep all the body parts functioning the right way this limiting the growth of cancerous cells.

3. Avoid Post-Menopausal Hormones Therapy

Post-Menopausal Hormones likes estrogen and progesterone help in treating menopause but well-conducted studies have led many doctors to conclude that the risks of these hormones often outweigh the benefits. Based on the Women Health Institute (WHI) study, taking post-menopausal hormones is linked to a higher risk of breast cancer. The risk returns to that of a woman who never take the hormones therapy within 3 years of stopping the hormones. Breast cancers in women taking the therapy are more likely to be found when they are bigger and have spread beyond the breast. (American Cancer Society, 2015)

4. Say NO to Plastic

Bisphenol S (BPS), a substitute for the chemical bisphenol A (BPA) in the plastic industry, shows the potential for increasing the aggressiveness of breast cancer through its behaviour as an endocrine-disrupting chemical, a new study finds. (Science Daily, 2017) Please avoid to heat food in plastic containers in the microwave. Use porcelain or glass instead. You can use stainless steel glass or glass bottles to drink water instead of plastic ones.

5. Avoid Toxic exposures when possible

A new peer-reviewed study says that many chemicals demonstrated to cause mammary cancer in rats are linked to breast cancer in women. The study was conducted by scientists at the Silent Spring Institute and was published today in a National Institutes of Health (NIH) journal, Environmental Health Perspectives. The study provides a road map for breast cancer prevention by identifying high-priority chemicals that women are most commonly exposed to and demonstrates how to measure exposure. This information will guide efforts to reduce exposure to chemicals linked to breast cancer, and help researchers study how women are being affected. (Silent Spring Institute, 2014) Please avoid gasoline, diesel and other vehicle exhaust, flame retardants, stain-resistant textiles, paint removers, and disinfection byproducts in drinking water. These are the sources of mammary carcinogens which can increased risks of breast cancer.

6. Self-Examination Knowledge is power

According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF), a significant portion of the disease is caught when a woman conducts a self-examination outside of a clinical setting. (Premier Physician Net, 2015) Monthly self-exams and breast cancer screening by a healthcare provider are vital to detecting the disease in its earliest stage. So, examine your breasts regularly. A few days after your periods when your breasts are less tender or swollen check for lumps, inverted nipples, puckered or dimpled skin. About 20% cases are detected this way.
