Health And Welfare In October

Well, breast cancer awareness is important to know about to a point. 1 in 3 breast cancers can be prevented each year in the United States or 86,000. You may ask how? According to the American Institute of Cancer Research they state:

Limit alcohol to no more than one drink a day. That means no jello shots!

Maintain a healthy weight. That means watching what you eat.  I just read today that high cholesterol causes strokes. Are you checking to see what your cholesterol levels are? Too much fat in the blood is not good. that means get rid of the muffin on the stomach as it is not a life saver.

Breastfeed your child.

Be physically active every day. No more being a couch potato or being on the community every day. Besides cancer it lowers your risk fr heart disease, type 2 diabetes, strokes, and high blood pressure.  Even 43,000 people are linked to colon cancer because of lack of physical activity.
