New Delhi: Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer found among women. It is a malignant tumour that starts in the tissues of the breast. And not many people are aware that it can be found in men too.
Though there is no specific way that can prevent you from this deadly disease, but women can do certain things that can help reduce the risk of breast cancer.
Here are some ways to prevent breast cancer:
Reduce alcohol intake
One should reduce consumption of alcohol as it increases the risk of breast cancer. Drinking more than one alcoholic beverage daily can boost breast cancer risk.
Eat a healthy diet
Eating a healthy diet consisting of fruits and vegetables daily helps reduce the risk of breast cancer.
One should exercise regular as it helps decrease the risk of breast cancer. Studies have shown that as little as 75 to 150 minutes of brisk walking each week can lower the risk.
Women who are breast feeding their babies have a lesser risk of developing breast cancer.
Stop smoking as it not only harms our health but also increases the risk of developing breast cancer in younger, pre-menopausal women.
