Actually one of the very best things to do to lower your risk of breast cancer is to walk every day for half an hour. I think it lowers your risk by almost half if i remember right... and what's amazing is it does this even if you have previously HAD breast cancer! One of my friends who had breast cancer was told by her doctor to start walking every day up until her surgury, and then three weeks following surgury he wanted her at it again.

Walking can do so much for all of us.. please walk!

That's right - both of your suggestions. It's also known now that it's better to be fit and fat and than unfit and skinny. In other words, even if you have a little extra wegith, if you excercise regularly you will be btter off than a person who happens to be thin but never gets out for those walks! Of course, das, as you point out, how you carry weight is also a factor.

And our diets affect our chances as well... Check out his suggested diet to reduce risk of cancer. Even if it doesn't it is so healthy it will still benefit you!

"It's also known now that it's better to be fit and fat and than unfit and skinny." -BioAlegra

Many years ago one of my friends was saying that too... something about a fit body being able to utilize food better... he said, "almost selectively"... and rid the body of toxins and illnesses better, too. With what little i know of how the body works, this makes sense to me. The lymph system, so vital to our immunity, mainly works when we move. Even sweating helps us remove toxins from our body.

I believe in walking too to protect us from all sorts of illness and disease.

I concentrate on having a very strong immune system. I think if my body is strong enough to fight off colds, flu and any other form of smaller illness, then it should be strong enough to fight off cancer. That's just my own theory but I try to stay healthy and take supplements and eat organic to protect myself from the harmful effects of chemicals and pesticides, for instance.

My healthy immune system has taken me into my 50's now with absolutely no health problems at all. Of course my dad is 84 and takes no medicines at all either. He has no health problems, nor does my mom, so maybe genetics is part of that good immune system too.

YAY for your dad!!!

Recently i heard (sorry i can't site the source but if i come across it again i'll post it)... that organic foods in stores unfortunately have a much higher incidence of ecoli and bacteria than their counterparts, making it of about equal advantage/disadvantage to produce grown in pesticides which deter it during transport and sale. I have no opinion on this as to whether it is true or not. Certainly the study did not compare homegrown organic vegetables, which i would think to be superior to all purchased vegetables, organic or not, for many reasons.

Here is another major way to increase your health and deter major, life-threatening illnesses. Did you know that people who floss and have good dental hygene have a longer life expectancy than people who don't by as much as 5 YEARS?! There are a couple of reasons for this. One, many diseases enter the body through the mouth, so keeping it clean and free of of heavy bacteria helps. Also, inflamation of the gums can release inflammatory substances into the bloodstream which can clog the arteries and lead to heart disease.
