Posted on

The healthcare system in the US is broken. Despite having some of the best doctors, surgeons, and treatments in the world, vast groups of society suffer from easily preventable diseases and rely on emergency care, which often leads to high costs and personal bankruptcy.

But in the meantime, we should try to fix as much as we can with resources available today.

Can you Prevent Breast Cancer?

Posted on

As with all cancers, with breast cancer there are risk factors – things that may increase your chances of developing it, and protective factors – things that decrease your risk. Of course, the aim for every woman should be to lower your risk factors and increase your protective factors. In reality, not every risk factor is under your control. For example, if you’re genetically predisposed to breast cancer or have a strong family history of it, this is outside of your control. However, rather than waiting until you’re already sick with breast cancer or any other disease, you should take
