Breast Cancer Prevention News

Breast cancer is a terrible disease that affects predominantly women. Learn about a simple dietary and lifestyle change that can significantly reduce your odds of developing breast cancer in your lifetime.

According to the Center For Disease Control, one out of every eight women in the United States will develop breast cancer. Ranked as the number one killer among all cancer to women, the disease is currently destroying millions of families and loved ones each and every day. As fundraisers, walks, billboards, corporate programs, and pink ribbons attempt to combat the growing numbers, reality is not changing. In fact, cancer numbers continue to grow with no end or change in sight.

Vitamin D levels have long been thought to play a role in prevention of breast cancer. Although conclusions have been debated, there is little doubt Vitamin D shows the possibility of a promising role for the health minded individuals.

Fortunately, a new large groundbreaking study shows the key to reducing the risk of breast cancer is through dietary and supplementary intake of Vitamin D and  direct sunlight exposure. The new research investigated data over ten years, involving 67,721 postmenopausal women. The results were startling. Women consuming dietary and supplemental Vitamin D and adequate direct sunlight exposure had a 32% to 50% reduced risk of breast cancer! The conclusion was published in the journal of Cancer Epidemiology Biomarkers and Prevention.[1. Cancer Epidemiol Biomarkers Prev. 2010 Sep;19(9):2341-50.]

The French led researchers may have silenced the skeptics.  It is becoming more clear that Vitamin D produced from sun exposure along with Vitamin D consumption through the diet is essential to cancer prevention.  This cancer fighting combination is great news for the future of women’s health.

You do not have to live in fear of the sun or any disease if your body is functioning the way it is designed to work.  Through Maximized Living’s 5 Essentials of health, you can protect yourself from disease and live to your potential.
