Can I Prevent Breast Cancer?

Published by Leon Tcheupdjian

In honor of October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, our team at the Liposuction & Cosmetic Surgery Institute wants to help minimize your risk of developing this disease. While factors such as genetics play a role in breast cancer, there are also measures that you can take to help reduce your risk.

Keep Active

According to research, even 30 minutes of exercise 5 days a week can help keep breast cancer to a minimum. Consistent exercise can reduce your risk of developing breast cancer from 10-30 percent! Grab some friends in the neighborhood and go for a nightly walk. The benefits are worth it.

Eat Well

Of course, eating well and an active lifestyle go hand-in-hand. We recommend embracing a diet that is high in vegetables and fruit and keeps sugar, refined carbohydrates and fattening foods to a minimum. Always include whole grains in your diet and make sure to keep red meat consumption moderate. Fuel your body and provide it with the nutrients that it needs to thrive; in return, you are helping reduce your risk of breast cancer.

Avoid Radiation Exposure

Some imaging methods such as computerized tomography utilize higher doses of radiation which can ultimately have an impact on your body. Try to reduce your exposure to these types of radiation or other environmental pollutants.

Breast implants in Chicago can help women feel more confident about themselves. If you are interested in learning how our team at the Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery can help you, don’t hesitate to contact our team today!
