Beauty Products that wage a war on Breast Cancer!
Did you know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month? Well, it is. According to the American Cancer Society, the chance of a woman having invasive breast cancer some time in her life is 1 in 8. For me, that means out of my seven aunts, my Aunt Gina got it. Lucky for me and everyone around her, she is still here!
But look around at your closest group of girlfriends...one of you is likely to get this horrible cancer once in your life. That is a scary thing. Things you can do to prevent breast cancer include:
*Maintain a healthy weight (a BMI of less than 25 is ideal)
*Exercise regularly - get on that treadmill girl!
*Eat 7 or more servings of fruits and veggies daily (Jamba Juice, here I come!)
*Take your vitamins regularly! A multivitamin, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Fish Oil is what you'll need.
