Think Pink!!

October is breast cancer awareness month, so let's talk about breast cancer prevention....I wrote a post a few days ago about general cancer prevention which talked about maintaining a healthy weight and making good food choices. Here are some ADDITIONAL things you can do to reduce cancer risks, some specific to breast cancer:
