Proper Diet and Lifestyle Can Lower Breast Cancer Rates, Researchers Say
After an assessment of environmental factors, researchers determined that incidence of breast cancer can often be mitigated by proper diet and lifestyle choices.
According to a recent study from the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies, only about 10% of breast cancer cases can be attributed to genetics. After an assessment of environmental factors, researchers determined that incidence of breast cancer can often be mitigated by proper diet and lifestyle choices. Air quality, water, diet and vitamin supplements, along with exposure to chemicals in household products, were the biggest factors associated with increased risk.
“While breast cancer death rates have fallen over the past 20 years by about 30%, incidence rates have declined only 5%,” say boomer generation health experts Dian Griesel, Ph.D., and Tom Griesel, authors of the new book TurboCharged: Accelerate Your Fat Burning Metabolism, Get Lean Fast and Leave Diet and Exercise Rules in the Dust (April 2011, BSH). “During the same period, obesity rates, along with the rate of virtually every other chronic disease, have risen. Being overweight or obese is of particular concern because fat cells make estrogen, and estrogen is the hormone that accelerates the growth of most breast cancers.”
“Either way, we need to do everything we can to avoid the risk factors that are clearly under our control when it comes to guarding our health and the health of our children,” adds Dian. “It’s easy to look for the cause or blame elsewhere, but unless we have done everything possible to avoid or eliminate known risk factors, we need to assume at least some of the responsibility for the cancers and chronic diseases we face today. We need to not only take more responsibility, but more action. Adopting a sensible diet and lifestyle program is your first line of defense.”
