It’s Friday – Let’s Talk Boobies!
Ok, Ok. We’re not just talking boobies because it’s Friday. However, it is almost the end of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and I’ve got some more “Booby News” to share!
Here are some facts to consider:
A woman is 42 percent less likely to die from a recurrence of breast cancer if she gets pregnant after her cancer than if she does not.
A third of breast cancer cases could be avoided through regular exercise and a better diet. One third!
A new blood test may detect early signs of breast cancer up to 17 months earlier than the conventional exams we use today.
The more weight a woman gains from age 18 on, the more likely she is to have breast cancer later in life.
Fifty-nine percent of women diagnosed with breast cancer get a lumpectomy, while 41 percent opt for a mastectomy.
Eighty-nine percent of women diagnosed with breast cancer are able to fight off the disease for five years or longer (with treatment).
Holy breast cancer, Batman! That’s a lot of boob news. Remember, just because it’s nearing the end of October doesn’t mean that you should stop being “aware.” Or wearing pink. Even if you’re an NFL player. ‘Cause real men wear pink too.
That is all.
