It is important that young men and women are aware of breast cancer and don’t let fall underneath the radar. Young women often do not consider themselves to be at risk, about 7% of all breast cancer cases are diagnosed as women under the age of 40. The Young Survival Coalition reminds us that breast cancer can strike at any age and the lower incidence of disease is of little comfort to the more than 250,000 women living in the United States who were diagnosed with breast cancer. Detection of cancer in younger patients may be more aggressive […]
In addition to being aware of breast cancer and supporting research and the survivors is prevention. This will include a few things; but overall it is about being healthy. 1. Avoid becoming overweight. Obesity raises the risk of breast cancer after menopause, the time of life when breast cancer most often occurs. Avoid gaining weight over time, and try to maintain a body-mass index under 25.
2. Eat healthy to avoid tipping the scale. Embrace a diet high in vegetables and fruit and low in sugared drinks, refined carbohydrates and fatty foods. Eat lean protein such as fish or chicken […]
We are proud to be a part of the American Cancer Society’s Annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. The event will be held on October 21, 2012 in Central Park, Manhattan. With our team name, Rosetta Rads, we are radical in their belief that a cure for Breast Cancer is coming and that early detection equals positive outcomes. This year, we are hoping to raise $2500.
We have participation from their entire staff and would like to invite you to join their team and donate to this cause. To join or donate on behalf of the Rosetta Rads go onto […]
On Sunday, it was reported by a group of scientists who just completed an analysis of breast cancer genetics, that they could classify breast cancer into four major new classes. Scientists hope that this will lead to even more effective treatments. Some of the findings also hinted that one of the classifications may be more susceptible to a drug that they use to fight ovarian cancer.
The study was published by the journal Nature and focuses on the biological details of tumors, whereas, in the past they focus on where the cancer arises. The scientists are hoping that this study helps […]
