At our naturopathic clinic, one of our main areas of focus is naturopathy for women's health.
We often see women or hear stories about others who have been affected by cancer in their live's.
Today's article's goal is to provide further understanding around breast cancer, specifically risk factors and prevention, for both women and men.
Women and Breast Cancer
Breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosis in women over the age of 20.
Research from the Canadian Cancer Society estimates that 1 in 8 Canadian Women will have breast cancer in her lifetime, and 1 in 31 will die from it.
Reducing risk and early detection are important factors in decreasing the amount of people affected by breast cancer.
