It cannot be emphasized enough that breast cancer can be prevented. But you can detect it at an early stage using breast thermography technology. Most people have heard of risk factors such as genes, biology (eg. early menses, late menopause), and diet (eg. high fat). However, these risk factors are present in only 30% of women with breast cancer. What about the other 70% of women with breast cancer? What puts them at risk? Should a woman who does not carry the high-risk genes (BRCA1 and BRCA2) be less concerned about getting cancer than someone who does carry those genes? Over 95% of breast cancer patients do not have either gene associated with breast cancer.
The answer lies in understanding the multifactorial effects that behaviors, lifestyle, diet, stress, and environmental factors such as toxins, have on breast cancer risk.
Maintaining healthy progesterone and estrogen levels is vital to preventing Estrogen Dominance which may be one of the most causative factors leading to pre-or peri-menopausal breast cancer. Progesterone protects breast cells from dividing out of control, however, a woman’s progesterone levels start declining in her late 30s and thus can give rise to Estrogen Dominance. However, most breast cancer occurs postmenopausal, at the time when ovaries have stopped producing normal protective hormone levels.
As you can see, most breast cancer occurs without any risk factors being present. Therefore, every woman should protect herself from breast cancer by balancing her hormones, exercising, maintaining a healthy diet, avoiding alcohol, and taking an active role in controlling her environmental exposure to pesticides, plastics, hair dyes, and other toxins.
