Breast Cancer Awareness
Keeps You Healthy
How can we raise our
awareness about what should we do in order to avoid
the ravages of breast cancer?
There are many things we can do. First, we must give up
using cosmetics and other such things on our skin that
contain questionable ingredients. Many of the currently
available lipsticks (have you ever licked your lips with
lipstick on), makeups, hand creams, sun screens and hair
dyes are among the culprits.
But, luckily, with breast cancer awareness
you can find the safe alternative items available at your
health food store. Iíve been using these for a long time
and the quality is excellent!
Next, eat organically grown foods. Breast cancer awareness
demands that we learn about the fact that organic foods
are healthier and contribute to longevity. Organic vegetables, fruits, grains, beans, nuts, meat and
poultry are raised without the use of pesticides, fungicides
or chemical fertilizers. For preventing breast cancer you
couldnít do better. New research also shows that organic
food may have more nutrients than conventionally grown
Breast cancer awareness encourages us to find farmers and
food that are free of pesticide residues. A fun and
economical way to buy organic food is to look for a local
farmerís market near you. There you can buy directly from
the growers who care as much about you, the consumer, as
they do about their land and crops. Plus, you get to help
protect the land and animals of our country from being
poisoned by pesticides and other chemicals used in
traditional farming. You will also be supporting family
farming, since most organic farms are small to medium in
A breast cancer awareness diet includes vegetable sprouts
such as alfalfa, sunflower, bean, mustard and cress. Other
helpful foods are organically raised raw vegetables and
low glycemic index fruits (high glycemic fruits have too
much sugar and should be avoided for cancer prevention).
Raw nuts like almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, pine nuts and
Brazil nuts are very healthy for you especially when
soaked in water overnight. Raw vegetable juices and green
foods such as barley grass juice or powder are excellent.
All of these foods are rich in nutrients and will support
you in excellent health.
So now you have some steps you can take to raise your
breast cancer awareness and to experience vibrant health
as well! While youíre at it, you might want to buy a
cancer awareness bracelet to help remind you about staying healthy.
