Do You Have THIS Breast Cancer Trigger?
If you’re like most women, you’d do just about anything to avoid breast cancer.
That’s why you never miss your routine mammogram.
The only problem is? Mammograms only catch cancer AFTER you have it.
But you shouldn’t have to cross your fingers and hope for best.
Now you don’t have to.
Because researchers have uncovered a certain trigger that DOUBLES your risk of developing breast cancer.
And that means that avoiding this ONE THING could go a long way towards making sure you stay cancer-free.
The most common type of breast cancer is called estrogen-receptor positive, or ER-positive. It means that cancer cells grow in response to estrogen.
About 80% of all cancers are ER-positive.
In a recent study published in JAMA Oncology, researchers looked at nearly 3,500 women between 50 and 79 who had already gone through menopause. They wanted too see if there was a connection between body fat and breast cancer.
What they found was that an 11-pound increase in whole body fat mass was associated with a 35% increase in ER-positive breast cancer.
But an 11-pound increase in fat mass specifically in the torso area was associated with a 57% increase in ER-positive breast cancer.
In other words, women with excess belly fat had more than DOUBLE the risk of breast cancer.
There were similar connections between body fat mass and invasive breast cancer (meaning cancer that had spread to the surrounding breast tissue).
Other studies have connected obesity to an increased risk of all kinds of cancers, including breast, colon, kidney, pancreas, gallbladder, cervix… you name it.
But what was different about this study was that while the women carried some excess body weight, they still had a “normal” body mass index (BMI).
What this really means is that there’s simply no safe amount of excess fat in your body.
It also means that by keeping the pounds off, you can go a long way towards preventing breast cancer (and possibly other cancers as well).
If you’ve packed on more pounds than you would have liked over the holidays, I can’t think of a better reason to take them off.
To a brighter day,

“You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” “All washed up.” “Over the hill.” I’m tired of society programming you to think that you should start expecting less out of life once you reach a certain age.

You know the saying, “Too much of a good thing.” That applies perfectly to a controversial Alzheimer’s treatment.
