Predominantly, cancer is a term used to designate malignant neoplasms or tumors (metastasis).
For those unenlightened, metastasis refers to the wide dispersion of abnormal cells to adjacent tissues and interfere with the normal body function, leaving undesirable systemic upshots.
Do you know? Presently, cancer has managed to secure the second position in the race of global death. Every 1 in 6 deaths is due to life-threatening cancer.

Definitively, here in this context, we are going to board on the ship of ‘Breast cancer‘ and sail through the region it covers.
Breast cancer, a spine-chilling expression especially for all women out there.
It has a chance of occurring in both men and women, but male breast cancer is rare.
‘You women are classy and stupendous’…actually being a woman and growing old isn’t easy…they themselves are the leading risk factors.
Besides, genetic mutations, hardcore reproductive history, having dense breasts, ionizing radiations, poor dietary patterns, and overuse/misuse of contraceptive pills/hormones trigger breast cancer in women.
Regrettably, most of the strongest risk factors are beyond your dominance.
Nonetheless, you should cater your attention to the positive side and see those factors that you can naturally regulate.
But it’s always advisable to consult your doctor before taking any major leap.
Natural ways to help protect your breast health
According to the latest highlights of newer research findings, some basic breast cancer prevention strategies have been formulated for you below:
- Optimum weight is desirable
Your weight serves as one of the key indicators of good health. An optimum weight in accordance with your height projects your body’s overall functional efficiency.
When you are overweight, you are actually in proximity to breast cancer risk factors.
- Physical activity
Your lifetime balanced physical activity alleviates the risk of postmenopausal breast cancer.
Mild to moderate exercises have momentous benefits against every disease.
- Your body covet colour too
Before you get baffled and misinterpret the term colour here, let me clarify that you need to judiciously include different coloured fruits and vegetables in your diet to avail their protective effect against breast cancer.
A balanced diet is favourable against all odds.
- Prebiotics and probiotics
Simply, probiotics are live bacteria that inhibit the excess growth of toxic bacteria in our gut.
Prebiotics promote the growth of probiotics.
They together have beneficial effects against carcinogenic substances that cause cancer.
- Say no to alcohol and smoking
Epidemiologic studies say that the consumption of alcohol and smoking tobacco synergistically have an increased effect on those tissues directly exposed to them.
So don’t go by the trend ladies and prioritize ‘show off’.
Just say no to these harmful practices.
- If you are a new mom, breastfeed, please
Exclusive breastfeeding lowers your risk of breast cancer and other cancer as well through optimization of a complex hormone interplay within your body.
- Hormones are angels, they can be evil too!!
Postmenopause, if you want to rely on HRT therapy….then please give it a second thought. Even if you urgentlyneed it…make sure it should be short-lived.
Estrogen and progestin used in this therapy rather trigger breast cancer in women.
Hey, ladies! You are one of the best creations of God…yeah, you matter!
Conservation of health is easier than the cure of the ailment.
So, ladies!….your little move towards some valuable lifestyle changes can transform the entire you.
Your near and dear ones need you, want you; so take care of yourself!
