If only other cancers could feature ample breasts–without impunity–in their fundraising and informational pieces! My bias exposed, this Fox News report does feature some great suggestions. I’ve included a copy of the opening picture to help make my point:
This unfortunate turn of events mirrors the real world: over 230,000 American women are expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer by year’s end:
On the surface, this headline sounds encouraging. But don’t forget to read the fine print:
Breast cancer is always in the news. Here’s a pair of links from a website called FoodConsumer.org, touting supplements as a way to prevent it. See what you think:
More news about oils. My last post highlighted the importance of substituting animal fats for vegetable oils. It focused on men. Today’s eye-opening article keys on a new way women may be able to prevent breast cancer: by consuming more fish!

According to Time Magazine, researchers have settled-on 10 different types of breast cancer classifications…
Late last month I ran an article about an exciting new, broad-based cancer therapy:
One more reason to eat more vegetables:
I don’t run a lot of cancer related celebrity stories. I first ran this article last fall about Giuliana Rancic’s new-found breast cancer to make a point about cancer screening.
