Breast Cancer Prevention Awareness

20 Oct

By the end of 2013, an estimated 232,340 women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer and an estimated 39,620 women will die from breast cancer. Much emphasis has been given to “Breast Cancer Awareness“, while very little attention has been paid to “Breast Cancer Prevention“, despite that a link between cancer and diet has been known for years. (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 1988; National Research Council, 1982, 1989)


Dr. Christine Horner had become a plastic surgeon and spokesperson for the American Cancer Society on the subject of breast cancer. After seeing breast cancer patients showing up in her office at earlier and earlier ages, she felt there must be a cause. It was then that she realized, being trained in Western medicine, that she had never been trained in nutrition. Western medicine’s focus on drugs and operations were not working to reduce the occurrence of breast cancer as far as she was concerned, so she now has a website to promote the available information on ways to prevent breast cancer.

Guidance about what foods to eat “if you survive breast cancer” should be followed in order to prevent it in the first place.

  • Get regular, intentional physical activity.
  • Reduce your lifetime weight gain by limiting your calories and getting regular physical activity.
  • Avoid or limit your alcohol intake.

You can see an interview done by Dr. Mercola with Dr. Horner in 2011 on YouTube here.
