GOOD THURSDAY to ALL of My Coffee, Chocolate, Cocoa, Caramel, Cinnamon, Creamy, and Caucasian CRAZY COOL GROOVY Fighters and Survivors of BREAST CANCER, Caregivers and Supporters of Fighters and Survivors, and Surviving Family of Fallen Soldiers of BREAST CANCER of ALL Shapes, Sizes, Flavors, Persuasions, and Denominations!!!

LADIES;

At any time today, did you take off your bra?

Do you wear your bra 24/7, even when you are asleep for the night?

Have you made an appointment with a physician to discuss your Family Medical History?

If you are at least 35-years-old, have you had your annual Mammogram?

If you are at least 20-years-old, do you give yourself a monthly Breast Self-Exam?

Do you practice Breast Massage?

Do you drink alcohol?

Do you smoke?

Do you engage in exercise on a regular basis?

Do you maintain a healthy diet?

This quick 10 Question Quiz is the result of information independently gathered by Yours Truly, CCG.

YES; Ya Boy CCG really does educate himself on these types of issues.

BUTT (A Big But); won't you check out this quick list of 10 TIPS For BREAST CANCER PREVENTION, courtesy of the good folks at the FRED HUTCHINSON CANCER RESEARCH CENTER:

1. Avoid becoming overweight. Obesity raises the risk of breast cancer after menopause, the time of life when breast cancer most often occurs. Avoid gaining weight over time.

2. Eat healthy to avoid tipping the scale. Embrace a diet high in vegetables and fruit and low in sugared drinks, refined carbohydrates and fatty foods. Eat lean protein such as fish or chicken breast and eat red meat in moderation.

3. Keep physically active. Research suggests that increased physical activity, even when begun later in life, reduces overall breast-cancer risk by about 10 percent to 30 percent. All it takes is moderate exercise like a 30-minute walk five days a week.

4. Drink little or no alcohol. Alcohol use is associated with an increased risk of breast cancer.

5. Avoid hormone replacement therapy. Menopausal hormone therapy increases risk for breast cancer. If you must take hormones to manage menopausal symptoms, avoid those that contain progesterone and limit their use to less than three years.
6. Consider taking an estrogen-blocking drug. Women with a family history of breast cancer or who are over age 60 should talk to their doctor about the pros and cons of estrogen-blocking drugs.

7. Consider taking the aromatase inhibitor exemestane.  The results of a study released earlier this year showed that the drug exemestane reduced the risk of breast cancer by 65 percent in high-risk, postmenopausal women. Talk to your doctor about whether this may benefit you.

8. Don’t smoke. Research suggests that long-term smoking is associated with increased risk of breast cancer in some women.

9. Breast-feed your babies for as long as possible. Women who breast-feed their babies for at least a year in total have a reduced risk of developing breast cancer later.

10. Get fit and support breast cancer research at the same time. Regular physical activity is associated with a reduced risk of breast cancer.

HAPPY TAKE OFF YOUR BRA, TAKE CARE Of YOUR BREASTS, And TAKE CARE Of YOURSELVES BRALESS THURSDAY NIGHT!!!

PEACE, LOVE, And BOUNTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL BRALESS THURSDAY BLESSINGS;
