During October, as we observe Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we'll be providing links to information sources that can help you feel able to help yourself or others in your community.
Breast Cancer has a complex combination of contributing factors, which none of us can entirely control. But, as with any health issue, the more you know, the more you can feel able to manage what happens. Information is helpful for us as patients, as caregivers, as family members, neighbors and friends.
Rooted Radiance is committed to women's health and supporting the ways that women can feel healthy and live fulfilling lives. Information is a part of the set of tools for building a healthy life.
For the ways that we can take steps to prevent breast cancer and other forms of cancer, the Breast Cancer Fund has some great information for helping to understand the links between environmental exposures and the disease.
Although we appreciate that the first prevention tip is Choose Safe Cosmetics, the reality is that making conscientious choices about your home environment and your nutrition are critical to staying healthy so that your defenses are strong against the disease.
Check out the Breast Cancer Fund's information, which is straightforward and easy to use. Share the information this month and show your commitment to women's health - your own and someone you love.
When our communities know more, we can be prepared to prevent the disease and get early treatment, which is the key to a good outcome.
