Statistics of Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou show that in recent years, the incidence of breast cancer is increasing among young women, which has seriously impacted the physical and mental health of young women. Experts point out that the reasons for such situation are closely related to the changes in habits, because women in modern society are under great pressure, and have to get used to fast-paced life, poor sleep or irregular lifestyle; all these would lead to endocrine disorders, and even become the induced factors of breast cancer.
Therefore, what can we do to prevent breast cancer in the daily life?
1. Regular exercise
Recently, a study published in the Bulletin of the U.S. National Cancer Institute report shows that exercise can reduce the risk of breast cancer for women before and after menopause by 60%. A Norway research institution has investigated 25,624 women and found that those women who have weekly exercise at least 4 hours have 37% lower in the risk of breast cancer.
2. Weight control
Exercise can prevent breast cancer, and the fundamental reason is that it can control the body fat. A study of Harvard University showed that women who have rapid weight gain after the age of 18 would face 2 times of the risk of breast cancer after menopausal compared with those women who maintain the standard weight for a long time.
3. Do not drink alcohol
Experts of Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou believe that if you drink once every day, then the risk of breast cancer will be increased by 11% for you; if drink twice a day, the risk will be 24%; if drink more than twice a day, then The risk will increase to 40%. Therefore, it is advisable for these ladies who like drinking not to drink more than three times a week, and the amount for each shall be also limited.
4. Taking vitamin D
The latest research results show that vitamin D is effective in the prevention of breast cancer. A study found that daily intake of 200 international units of vitamin D (about two tsp of vitamin D milk powder), the risk of breast cancer for women will be decreased by about 30%. Therefore doctors suggest that women of or under 50 years old shall take at least 200 international units of vitamin D a day; while for women over the age of 50, it is better to take 400 to 600 international units of vitamin D a day.
5 .More sunbathe
What is related to taking vitamin D is that more sunbathe can also decrease the incidence of breast cancer, because only under the sunlight, the synthesis of vitamin D shall be possible in the skin. U.S. experts say that for most people, 10-15 minutes of sunbathe a day is enough, and also enough for people to keep the vitamin D demands needed by the body. However, some experts have also proposed that too much exposure to the sun for the skin will increase the risk of developing skin cancer, so sun exposure should be moderated.
6. Sexual life
Sexually active women should pay attention to sexual life, and choose appropriate methods of contraception. Some statistics show that the breast diseases induced by abortion account for about 40%, while the women who abuse contraceptives are more prone to breast diseases.
7. Choice of underwear
Women should be noted with the selection of underwear: cotton is the most appropriate. Lace or openwork pattern and nylon underwear easily cause breast skin allergies, what’s more, some small fallen off threads may enter the nipple, which may in turn cause mastitis. In addition, the tightness of underwear should be suitable: over-tight underwear may cause poor blood supply of the breast and oppressive pain, and thus can easily lead to some breast disease.
