Nine everyday habits that will help you avoid breast cancer has been chalked out for you.

1. Keep a tab on your weight – Women are more inclined to get breast cancer after they hit menopause. Generally, at this time in their lives, they tend to ignore themselves completely and as a result, put on a lot of weight.

2. Add greens and fruits to your diet – While junk food certainly seems appetizing, your bad calorie count increases. So ditch the fast food and focus on healthy food. Include more raw veggies and fruits in your diet to boost antioxidants and keep disease away.

3.Wear the right bra size – An ill-fitting garment is not only unattractive but also risky. Wear the right bra, which allows your skin to breathe.

6.Ditch the alcohol – Alcohol use is associated with an increased risk of breast cancer. Women should limit their intake to not more than one drink per day. It is often the unrestrained copious amount that causes trouble regardless of the type of alcohol.

7.Kick that butt – Smoking is associated with more than one type of cancer; cancer risk posed by smoking is real for both women and men.

  1. To avoid breast cancer, please women let your man suck your breast everyday at list twice deally, mornning and night, your man, your man.

  2. We could not rely on either the theories of those who work with a few subjects whose violence may or may not be similar or the
    advocates for those who experienced traumas or
    possess the abnormalities in question. As I’ve already mentioned, ‘Normal Crazy People’ is deliberately a feel-bad book ‘ it’s time you started
    feeling bad enough to do something about it.
    What is it specifically that makes you feel

  3. So on point, thanks Delia !

  4. Thanks for the info, May God bless you. You guys are doing great!
