The World United by a Pink Ribbon

Many companies, governments and non-government organisations (NGOs) worldwide have been reminding women about the importance of prevention and early diagnosis of breast cancer. 

According to INCA - National Cancer Institute from Brazil, the incidence of breast cancer is high among Brazilian women aged between 45 and 50 years. Research shows us 30 per cent of women get it, and half of them end up dying. Luckily, it’s been possible to reduce mortality with the campaign. Therefore, when the cancer is identified early, it can be treated immediately, preventing it from spreading in their bodies. 

However, doctors, who work in integrative medicine, believe that breast cancer might be averted by following a healthy lifestyle, such as trying to have as little stress as possible, having a good meal, doing exercises, getting restful sleep. 

A woman might get cancer because of her family genetics, dysregulated hormones, or metabolic syndrome. We live in an epidemic of obesity. People are dependent on industrialised food, stuffing themselves with junk foods instead of getting a healthy diet, ingesting all the vitamins and minerals found in vegetables, fruits, etc, fish, meat and chicken. If it’s possible to have all organic food, it’s better.

Taking care of health is the responsibility of each and every one of us, so that we can prevent cancer and other diseases. Prevention is the keyword for a healthy life.
