Bringing Awareness with World Cancer Day

Do you know what cancer is the deadliest? Lung cancer kills more people than any other cancer and by a landslide. According to the American Cancer Society and National Cancer Institute, 1.37 million cancer deaths are attributed to lung cancer every year, responsible for 26 percent of women’s cancer deaths and 29 percent of men’s cancer deaths. The next most deadly cancer may be surprising to many, however. Cancers of the stomach causes 736,000 deaths each year. The World Health Organization estimates there will be a total of 13.1 million cancer deaths a year by 2030.

Breastfeeding Reduces Cancer Risk by a Third, New Study

Women with a strong history of breast cancer face few options to preventing the disease.  For those who carry the faulty BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes, giving them an almost 3 in 4 chance of developing breast cancer during their lifetime, a double mastectomy is the price some are willing to pay to avoid breast cancer.  However, a new study finds there is good news for women at such a high risk for breast cancer, and that is the impact of breastfeeding for more than a year.
