We know women and we know the fears associated with breast cancer. We want you to know there are ways to reduce your risks!
A good first step is to reduce how much you drink or smoke. Both of these factors increase your chances of getting cancer. Now that’s not to say you can’t enjoy a glass of wine or two after a long day. Actually, studies show that a glass of red wine can reduce your chances of getting breast cancer. The makeup of the red grapes reduces the amount of estrogen your body produces, making it harder for cancer cells to grow and develop.
Working out is important, not just to help you lose weight, but also to keep you at the weight you are. Oh, and did we mention it will reduce your chances of breast cancer! That’s right, the Department of Health and Human Services recommends getting at least two to three hours of cardio or strength training a week. This will not only help lower your risks of breast cancer but also, help you stay in shape to keep crushing that mom life!
Last week we mentioned how breastfeeding can also help reduce your risk of breast cancer, and that is still so true! It’s so amazing that something most Mama’s are already doing can help lower their chances without them even realizing. By breastfeeding you are actively blocking out those hormone receptors that promote breast cancer in the first place! Plus don’t forget, we’ve got you! By choosing Pink Stork you have so many options to help with breastfeeding, like our Lactation Smooth Vanilla Tea. The taste of the tea you will love, and your baby will end up loving the taste of your milk, too!
