Two important things all women should work on to reduce their risk of breast cancer.
Two things. Sugar, and telomeres. Just before Christmas, a few studies came out with some important information for women. Things were a little bit hectic, so I didn’t get a chance to mention them, but before I forget, here are two important things all women should know about breast cancer, from two recently released studies — that might help save your life.
What you should do: Retrain your taste buds to use less, or no sugar in your coffee and cereal, eat a piece of fruit instead of a candy bar or cookie, or after a meal instead of dessert, and wean yourself off of sugary beverages and stick to water or seltzer. Cut out all sources of added sugar in your diet, as much as possible.
What you should do: If you are overweight, increase your exercise to a minimum of 150 minutes each week, and pick up the pace as much as you can. Aim for at least 45 minutes of brisk, break-a-sweat, have a little trouble talking kind of exercise at least 4 times each week. If you eat excess sugar, see #1, and work on that too.
