please let me know which precautions are taken to avoid breast cancer..
That is an interesting question which has no one good answer, hbdal. But I can tell you things which should be avoided. For instance:
1) Don't smoke or quit smoking
2) Avoid stress in your life
3) Don't drink alcohol
4) Avoid caffeine
5) Avoid a fatty diet
6) Do your self-testing to detect any changes in your breasts
7) Get regular exams
8) Avoid birth control pills
9) Take care of the "body" you have... your body is your "temple" and should
be respected, nurtured and loved
10) Avoid preservatives in foods. In other words, read labels and if you cannot
pronounce it... don't ingest it. That is my rule of thumb, too.
11) Consume "whole" foods or food that isn't highly processed. Cooking your
own food is naturally better for you than buying frozen dinners or eating
at fast food establishments
12) Get plenty of rest
13) Keep yourself hydrated with a good quality water such as filtered water.
14) Avoid or limit red meat consumption
15) Maintain a good, healthy weight for your body type. You don't have to be
a skinny minny to have a healthy weight. Constant weight fluctuations,
for instance, places stress on the body, joints and disturbs the balance
of the gut for a healthy elimination process
There is a whole list of lifestyle choices that we make for our daily living needs and requirements. Stick to those that nurture you and your soul. Make a conscious effort to live right, eat right, and to care for the body you have the best way you know how. It goes without saying that some form of exercise is better than no exercise at all. For instance, you don't need to be able to run a marathon or bicycle like Lance Armstrong to benefit from some activity that you enjoy doing. Exercise is important because it gets the endorphins flowing and creates a sense of well-being. I believe "movement" or "motion" is more the key than being able to do aerobic exercise every day for one hour, let's say. I do exercise or take walks because that is all I can do. There are exercises that I do sitting in a chair, for instance. Motion is more important than sweating it out during an exercise. I do believe that doing "some thing" is better than doing "no thing".
My mother died at the young age of 51 from breast cancer. We were all smokers and we all quit after her death. My mother was also very overweight. She craved sugary sweets and fatty-type snack foods. My father maintained a healthy weight throughout his life and is still alive today because he quit smoking and takes care of his body. He is in his 90s now and still working.
Well, I hope I have helped give you some insight here and offered you options and choices for a better and healthier you! Thank you for having the courage to ask this question because it is such an important one.
One topic I didn't mention is the "preventative" measures that some take to avoid getting breast cancer, if they have the "gene". That is the mastectomy. Personally, that is a decision that must not be made lightly or done out of fear as fear releases chemicals in the body that are just bad. That is such a radical but personal decision that must be thoroughly researched and discussed with your doctor.
I wish you well and I wish you peace of mind through this journey called, "life"...
