Women campaign to Free the Nipple but remain silent about what they can do to free their breasts from cancer.
As many as one in three breast cancer cases could be prevented with simple lifestyle changes, a new report suggests.
Researchers from the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, say the easiest form of prevention for women is eating healthily, exercising more and drinking less alcohol.
They found that losing weight could slash women’s risk by more than half and cutting out alcohol could prevent nearly 10 percent of breast cancer cases.
Breast cancer is the number one killer of women between the ages of 20 to 59 and the odds may seem alarming, but the team lists a few steps women can take for themselves to lower their risk.
One out of every eight American women will be diagnosed with breast cancer during her lifetime, according to the American Cancer Society.
More than 268,000 cases are estimated be diagnosed in 2019 and more than 41,700 will die.
It is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, behind lung cancer. Breast cancer does also occur in men but the incidence rate is less than one percent.
Researchers found that postmenopausal women are two times more likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer if they are obese.
A 2011 study from the Breast Cancer Collaborative Group found that women who have higher estrogen levels have an increased risk of breast cancer.
A 2017 study from the Cancer Update Project found that women who ate more non-starch vegetables such as broccoli and asparagus had a lower risk of breast cancer.
Researchers also found that alcohol is a carcinogen that is responsible for more than six percent of breast cancer cases.
Since then, multiple studies have stated that women who have two to three alcoholic drinks per day increase their breast cancer risk by 20 percent.
‘Any amount of alcohol increases the risk of breast cancer and the more a woman drinks, the higher her risk of breast cancer,’ the authors wrote.
This is literally victim-blaming, no different than telling women they could prevent their own rapes if they did this or that. The problem with this kind of patriarchal approach to the world is that it ignores the reasons why and just attempts to treat the symptoms.
Have any of these “scientists” and “researchers” asked themselves why women put themselves in situations where they end up being raped and why women do things that increase their likelihood of suffering from breast cancer?
The answer to those very important questions is that women do these things because the patriarchy makes them do it.
Women go to men’s apartments, take off their clothes and jump into men’s beds only to get violently raped against their will because they’ve been socially conditioned by misogyny to do so.
Similarly, women eat unhealthy foods, avoid exercise and get drunk multiple times a week because men force these behaviors on them from a young age as a way to keep women under the glass ceiling.
Men do this, presumably, because they have small dicks and are afraid of strong, independent women who are cancer-free and unraped.
Healthy tits are a man’s worst nightmare.
