October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. During this month, there is an added push to make people aware of this devastating disease and help them learn all they can as we all fight to end it forever. As research is being done everyday, we can’t wait to hear when the eventual cure is found. Until then, prevention and education are our strongest weapons.
We’ve collected many useful pieces to help educate and inform as we all work to find a cure.
Diet and Breast Cancer
There are many studies connecting the relationship between diet and cancer, specifically breast cancer. The research is yielding new findings all the time. Staying aware is often key in cure and prevention.
Weight Loss and Breast Cancer
Obesity has been linked to cancer in some studies. Learn how a healthy body weight can be a powerful cancer prevention method. Also read how the consumption of high fat foods can play a role in cancer connections.
Breast Cancer Prevention Diet
Dr. Bob Arnot, NBC News chief medical correspondent, has written a book outlining studies that point to certain lifestyle choices including diet, that may prevent breast cancer.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which means it’s time for DietsInReview.com’s third annual Blogs Against Breast Cancer donation drive. During the month of October, when you publish this “My Blog Cares” badge on your blog or website, we’ll make a $5 donation to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Our fundraising goal is $500*, and this year, VML, a digital marketing agency, has generously agreed to match that amount. For each $5 donation you help us contribute to NBCF, VML will donate $5.
