Keeping Abreast: Ways to Prevent Breast Cancer

Front Cover
Strategic Book Publishing, 2008 - Breast - 128 pages
Breast cancer will strike one out of every 8 women. It is the disease women dread the most. It can disfigure, mutilate and scar womanhood; and its therapy can impair quality of life. Yet there is no concentrated medical effort to prevent it. Physicians focus is on early detection. They simply do not counsel their patients on breast cancer prevention. This book provides clear strategies to reduce the risk of breast cancer - strategies that are not only based on the author's experience as an oncologist, but also on an extensive review of the scientific literature. These strategies consist of simple and natural measures: things to take and things to do, with little or no use of pharmaceuticals. This is a book for all women.
