Wear pink for breast cancer awareness day

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare

Eating processed food such as bacon and sausage might lead to an increased risk of breast cancer, researchers have confirmed.

Katherine McDaniel of West Hartford, diagnosed at 44 in August 2014 said there is no history of breast cancer in her family. It is able to detect many breast cancers before symptoms occur, even in women with the densest breasts. If cancer is restricted to the breast, a person can be saved.

The Downtown Denville Business Improvement District (BID), local officials, and other community members gathered on Broadway, Denville's main thoroughfare, for a pink ribbon-cutting on October 4 to kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Month. "Although that person is young, it does not mean that she is invincible to breast cancer", she said. Komen New England, one in eight women nationally are diagnosed with breast cancer.

According to the World Cancer Research Fund, breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women worldwide. For example, mammograms can find 85 percent of cancers in fatty breasts but only 68 percent of cancers in very dense breasts.

When it comes to breast cancer several myths exist. In Connecticut - the state with the highest incidents of breast cancer in the country - 3,000 men and women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year. "When I see thousands of kids marching, they're the people that's going to make America great again".




BC Cancer Breast Screening provides free screening mammograms for eligible BC women age 40 and up.

Visit sharsheret.org for information on other local breast cancer awareness events and contact host organizations for details. "Early diagnosis is important, and women can survive breast cancer if it is found and treated early".

There are many places to get screened in the Treasure Valley.

While breast cancer can be a scary proposition, scheduling an annual mammogram to aid in early detection and living a healthy lifestyle to help reduce your risk can give you the peace of mind that comes from staying on top of your breast health. So if you think you are due for a mammogram or you aren't sure to talk to your family doctor or call a mammography center to schedule your mammogram.
