Breast cancer is the leading cause of death among American women between the age of 40-55, and the high prevalence has spawned a very invasive testing methods, to "preventive" double mastectomies to cancer drugs. (https://www.prohealthimaging.com)
Look for natural, normal ways to care for your precious female anatomy. Read on!
Optimize Vitamin D
Ideally vitamin D levels should be 50 ng/ml, but much research shows levels from 70-100 ng/ml will radically reduce your cancer risk. Safe sun exposure is the most effective way to increase your levels, but of course, be wise and time your sun exposure. Sunburns are harmful, not helpful. If you are sensitive to the sun, second to the sun's value is oral vitamin D3 supplementation. (See Dr. Mercola's website for more excellent info. on the importance of Vitamin D). Check out Dr. Mercola's , Liposomal Vitamin D3 Dietary Supplement, 5,000 IU, 30 Servings https://amzn.to/2FG88kG
Iodine is found in each of the trillion cells in the body. Iodine levels are important for proper immune function as well as hormonal support, mainly helping the thyroid to function properly. Iodine has been shown to be anti-parasitic, antibacterial, antiviral, as well as containing anticancer properties. Iodine can also be very effective for fibrocystic breasts and ovarian cysts. A great book that explains this in detail is, Breast Cancer and Iodine: How to Prevent and How to Survive Breast Cancer by Ph.D. Dr. David Derry M.D.
You can find natural iodine supplements easily online. I really like iodine sources from sea kelp because of the high antioxidant in sea kelp. Check out Life Extension's Sea Iodine: www.vitacost.com/life-extension-sea-iodine-1000-mcg-60-vegetable-capsules-1
Radically Reduce Sugar
Normalizing insulin levels is one of the most powerful actions you can take to lower cancer risks. Research shows sugar intake can actually speeds up cancer growth. To everyone's discouragement, cancer cells are gorrbies for sugar!

Fat to Fit
Everyone knows we should maintain a healthy body weight. In concern of cancer, this is WHY it's important: Estrogen is produced in fat tissue, and an overload of estrogen greatly ups the risk for breast cancer. Also, toxins love to store in fat cells. Seems so unfair! As if gaining weight isn't enough to manage.
Breastfeed & Antioxidants
If possible, mothers should breastfeed a minimum of 3-6 months. Research shows this will reduce cancer risks in the women and child. All the while, eat a rainbow colored, high antioxidant diet from your leafy greens, fresh fruits, non-gmo whole grains, and legumes (regardless of if you are pregnant and craving nasty bologna & ice cream)!
