Here’s 8 Things Your Breasts Would Say If They Could Talk

Here's 8 Things Your Breasts Would Say If They Could Talk

Here’s 8 Things Your Breasts Would Say If They Could Talk

Conversation is the key to communication. But what if that conversation was coming from your breasts? Consider the injustice, embarrassment, confusion, and perhaps even anger that they would express upon. They are in the forefront, first to cross the finish line, and impossible to hide. If indeed they could talk, this is the 8 things my breasts would say if they could talk.

Here's 8 Things Your Boobs Would Say If They Could Talk

1. Stop staring at me!
On the occasion that a garment is allowing some cleavage, the eye contact of certain individuals becomes nearly non-existent. If I had a nickel for every time that a guy tried to strike up a conversation with my breasts…

2. Where did all of my support go?
We all own a bra that fits just the way we like it, nice and comfortable. Although comfy, it must be considered that support is being sacrificed. This support may be crucial to the support needed for proper posture and perky breasts.

3. Oh my gosh! Is that a lump?
No, it’s just the inside of my bra falling apart. Many inferior bras are quick to fall apart and leave you hanging with no support.

4. How did I get down here?
Over time the elastic in a bra’s support system will become brittle and stretched out. This allows the breasts to sag and sway noticeably.

5. Quit squishing me!
Bras that are too tight around the middle will force the extra fat from a side breasts to intrude and push the two breasts together.

6. Where did you come from?
Breast enlargement during pregnancy is often a surprise and a welcomed development according to men. Engorged and tender breasts require a bra that is supportive and comfortable.

7. I can’t breathe!
When you have large breasts, wearing a sports bra can really suck. The material is normally made from a tightly knit elastic type material that doesn’t breathe very well.

8. I am pretty, oh so pretty!
There are many times when breasts represent all that is unique, beautiful, and feminine about a woman. When a bra is the correct fit, size, and design, it enhances the natural beauty of the female form.

When it comes to imaginary talking body parts, my breasts certainly have enough to say. Although they love to bounce free, wearing the right bra when I have to keep them quiet. Keep your breasts silent with a well fitting and supportive “over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder.”

How to Make the Best Giant Cancer Fighting Salad

How to Make the Best Giant Cancer Fighting Salad

How to Make the Best Giant Cancer Fighting Salad

The following giant cancer fighting salad recipe is inspired by Chris Wark. Chris is a chemotherapy-free cancer survivor. Back in 2003, Chris was only 26 years old when he was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer. To say the least, Chris was shocked when his oncologist discovered a golf-ball size cancerous tumor in his colon. The tumor was removed successfully by his surgeon. Chris was then advised by his oncologist that he would need six months of intensive chemotherapy treatments, in order to eradicate the cancer from his body.

How to Make the Best Giant Cancer Fighting Salad

Chris refused chemotherapy and underwent a radical lifestyle change, including a diet overall. According to Chris’s blog, he lived on fast food and rarely ate raw, living fruits and vegetables. After his cancer diagnosis and surgery, Chris decided to radically improve his diet and lifestyle, in order to give himself the best chance of beating cancer, without the deleterious effects of chemotherapy. One of his main “go-to” meals is his giant cancer fighting salad.

Eating a salad full of organic vegetables and cancer fighting spices daily, or even twice a day, will help to replenish your body’s supply of vital minerals, vitamins and living enzymes that help to strengthen the immune system and give your body the ability to fight off cancer. In addition to 6 cups of organic vegetables daily, it is recommended to include a variety of seeds, nuts and organic sprouts in your giant cancer fighting salad. Optimally, using sprouted nuts and seeds in your salad will be easier for your body to digest and will more effectively help your body to heal from cancer.

Please only use organic vegetables. Non-organic vegetables are usually sprayed with toxic pesticides that frequently propel the growth of cancer and weaken the immune system, particularly estrogen-sensitive cancers, such as ovarian, breast and prostate cancer. It is also important to not put cheese, processed meats or store-bought dressings in your giant cancer fighting salad. All of these items usually have preservatives and other chemicals that weaken your body’s ability to fight cancer. Some of these chemicals can even fuel the growth and spread of cancer.

Kale, spinach, broccoli, purple cabbage, pepper, mushrooms, and cauliflower all have strong anti-cancer compounds. These are wonderful vegetables to put in your giant cancer fighting salad everyday. Squash, zucchini, avocado, and onion also have strong anti-cancer compounds and are wonderfully tasty additions to your salad. Additionally, sprouted sunflower seeds, almonds, mung beans, and lentils also have strong anti-cancer properties and make a nice addition to your salad.

Topping off your salad with a fermented food, such as natural sauerkraut, will help your body to digest all of the nutrients in the salad. A very simple, anti-cancer salad dressing is organic extra virgin olive oil and Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar with the addition of organic oregano, garlic, turmeric powder, and cayenne pepper. All four of these spices fight cancer directly and will enhance the flavor and enjoyment of your best giant cancer fighting salad.

15 Cancer Symptoms Women Often Ignore

15 Cancer Symptoms Women Often Ignore

According to the CDC, an average of 69.8% of women over 50 have had a mammogram in the last two years (circa 2010), but cancer isn’t always caught in the screening tests and definitely won’t be found during a screening if you don’t have it done in the first place. Often when women suspect something, fear keeps them from talking to their doctor about it and that’s definitely the wrong way to go. Except in notable cases, if you think there’s something wrong, there probably is. Trust your instincts about your body, it could save your life.

Here are some symptoms, which are serious even if they don’t always mean cancer, people will often overlook or ignore that could be harmful in the long run:

1 • A Chronic cough, chest pain, wheezing, or shortness of breath. Several types of cancer, including lung tumors and leukemia, can cause symptoms that are similar to a bad cough or bronchitis. Some patients say the pain will extend up to their shoulder and even down the arm.

2 • Breast changes. Most breast lumps aren’t cancer, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be investigated by a doctor anyway. Other changes may include: nipples that suddenly are inverted, nipple discharge, skin dimpling or puckering, (often called orange-peel skin) and scaliness or redness of the nipple or skin of the breast. This goes for everyone, not only women suffer from breast cancer.

3 • Swollen lymph nodes or lumps on the neck, underarms, or groin. Difficulty swallowing. If you have swollen lymph nodes or difficulty swallowing solids and liquids that are progressively getting worse, it may be a fungal infection or it can also be cancer of the lymph nodes or esophageal tract – either way, it requires a doctor’s intervention.

4 • Bloating, abdominal pain, change in bowel habits, rectal bleeding, and/or blood in stool or urine. Women are natural bloaters, but if it doesn’t go away in a week or two, it’s time to see your doctor – particularly if it’s combined with bleeding or unplanned weight loss. All of these may mean ovarian cancer, but can also mean colon, bladder, or kidney cancer.

5 • Skin changes. If a mole or two is changing shape/color/size, it’s time to see your doctor. Immediately.

6 • Heartburn. Stress, alcohol, and too much food (and all three!) can cause heartburn. Try changing your diet for a couple weeks and see if it goes away… If it doesn’t? You may have stomach, esophageal, or ovarian cancer.

7 • Weakness or fatigue. Many people are exhausted from leading hectic lives, but tiredness that simply doesn’t go away? That isn’t healthy, particularly if it’s combined with any of the other symptoms on this list.

8 • Mouth changes. If you smoke, be on the lookout for white spots in your mouth or on your lips as both are a sign of oral cancer.

9 • Heavy bleeding or bleeding between periods. Many people report this as the first indicator of uterine or endometrial cancer. Ask your doctor for a transvaginal ultrasound.

10 • Pain, particularly in the back. Everyone has aches and pains, which is why this is so often overlooked. Ongoing pain can signal the brain, bone, liver, breast, and many other cancers. Check with your doctor if any unexplained pains have lasted over a month.

11 • Changes in the nails. Unexplained changes in toenails or fingernails can indicate many different kinds of cancer. Be on the lookout for color changes such as white or pale beds or a brown/black streak or dot under the nail. Clubbing, enlargement of the ends of the fingers with nails that curve over the tips, is a sign of lung cancer.

12 • Abdominal pain accompanied by depression. While this one is rare, it’s also overlooked. Unexplained belly pain with depression can mean pancreatic cancer. Should you be worried? Only if your family has a history of the disease or you are a heavy drinker, then you should get into a doctor straight away. Otherwise, if the pain doesn’t go away in a couple weeks, it would be a good idea to see a doctor anyway.

13 • Frequent infections or fever. A high temperature that can’t be explained and just doesn’t go away can mean leukemia or another blood cancer, share your concerns with your doctor immediately.

14 • Discharge. It isn’t something people talk about, but smelly or foul vaginal discharge can be a symptom of cervical cancer. The discharge may occur between periods or after menopause and sometimes will have blood in it. It’s best not to self-treat discharge changes with over-the-counter medications and visit your doctor. At the very least, it could be an infection and most of those can’t be treated with over-the-counter stuff anyway.

15 • Weight loss without trying. Nearly everyone wishes their extra pounds would just fall off, but losing more than ten pounds without any changes in your eating or exercise habits can indicate a big problem. Most unintended weight loss isn’t cancer, it can be the thyroid, but it may also be stomach, lung, or pancreatic cancer. Better to err on the side of caution.

5 Hidden Breast Cancer Triggers

5 Hidden Breast Cancer Triggers

5 Hidden Breast Cancer Triggers

NEW Studies Reveal Alarming Hidden Cause of Breast Cancer!

Breast cancer is the number one cause of cancer-related deaths among women. Indeed, by the time they’re 50 years old, one in 41 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. This ratio only increases with age to one in 28 by age 60, and one in 16 by age 80. While researchers still don’t fully understand the cancer and all of its potential causes, they have identified numerous substances that can act as triggers. What’s more, several of these trigger are used or found widely in the average diet and lifestyle, but most women are unaware that they’re a threat.

5 Hidden Breast Cancer Triggers

Dairy Products

If you love milk or cheese, you’ll be disappointed to know that dairy products may be among the biggest little-known triggers for breast cancer. Nations with the highest incidence of breast cancer, like the UK, Canada, the US and Northern Europe, are also the world’s biggest dairy consumers. In one study, regular whole milk consumptions was linked with increased risks of not only breast cancer but also lung, cervical and bladder cancers. In addition, a Norwegian study discovered that in women who drank three or more servings of milk per day, there was a three times higher breast cancer risk. Yet another study, this time from Japan, found that dairy, as well as margarine, accelerated the growth breast cancer tumors in rats. Researchers suspect that the hormones and growth factors naturally present in dairy products, like bovine growth hormone, estrogen and IGF-1, act like fertilizers for breast cancer.

Soy and Flax

Most people view soy and flax as nutritious and health-giving foods. Unfortunately, while they do provide protein and omega-3 respectively, they can also promote breast and other reproductive cancers. Soy and flax are extremely high in phytoestrogens, which mimic natural estrogen once inside the body. This hormone has strong effects on breast tissue, triggering abnormally rapid cell division and potentially fueling the growth of estrogen-dependent tumors.

Sugar

We’ve all heard that sugar can feed cancer, but this appears particularly true of breast cancer. Researchers believe that along with the cancer-promoting properties of higher insulin and blood glucose levels, high sugar consumption also increases the density of breast tissue. Women with dense breasts are at the highest risk for developing breast cancer.

Deodorants

Aluminum is found in more than just your roll of foil. It’s also an ingredient in antiperspirant deodorants. Studies have found that breast cancers most often start in the area of the breast nearest the armpit, where deodorants are applied. It is believed that the aluminum absorbs into the body through the skin, where it damages DNA and disrupts the proper function of estrogen. Indeed,an Italian study went so far as to analyze nipple fluid from women with and without breast cancer. In the women with cancer, researchers detected two times as much aluminum in their nipple fluid compared to the women without cancer.

Pesticides

Pesticides are designed to kill things, so it’s little wonder they cause health problems in humans. Many conventional pesticides are both and carcinogenic and strongly estrogenic. This creates a perfect storm for breast cancer development. The best way to reduce exposure is to choose organic produce whenever possible, and wash all of your fruits and vegetable thoroughly.

The Girl Who Survived Breast Cancer

The Girl Who Survived Breast Cancer

The Girl Who Survived Breast Cancer

There was a girl named Andrea who believed in living life to the fullest and fully enjoyed every moment of her life.

One Monday morning she was found sitting in an empty office at their financial firm by her co-worker Jim. Jim noticed she was red-eyed and assumed she might have had a bad weekend, maybe a fight her boyfriend or a grand weekend plan that failed, but the fact was that she had gotten the results from a biopsy of the lump in her left breast and it read cancer, when she told Jim about it, he barely said anything and there was a long silence between them. Jim then broke the silence and asked, “Do you want to get a cup of coffee?”

She said yes to feeling a bit normal as strong coffee was their answer to botched assignments, long meetings, and generally crummy days. She was a 23 year old girl and until now the things that consumed her mind were worrying about how to handle the senior managers, which shoes or clothes to buy, and against which team her favorite rugby team was scheduled to play the next match. Now she found herself thinking about the biopsy report that she got a few moments ago.

It was her boyfriend Mark who had first felt the lump and assumed it would go away on its own like all other bruises and bumps. After three months she told her doctor about this, there for a more pressing concern, seasonal allergies for which she went to her doctor. Her doctor was not overly concerned about the lump but referred her to a radiologist anyway.

The report suggested it to be an aggressive Stage 2 cancer. Nevertheless, the tumor (all 2.8 centimeters of it) was removed and she was left to the loving care of her parents and Mark. While her friends enjoyed life in all possible ways she stayed at home. She was wiped out by the chemo and had no energy.

The Girl Who Survived Breast Cancer

After a few rounds of radiation the cancer was gone and she was then supposed to live life normally, however, she still could not get things she wanted, she had been asking her boss for a transfer but that did not happen, a basketball tournament for her team was scheduled the next month but she could not participate in that.

Cancer had made her lonely. She would panic with cancer talk as it bombarded her with life choices she was not ready to make. She was left bruised and hairless, but she did not give up hope and thought no matter how banged up it was, it was still her own body, and with all the courage she could muster played her first post-cancer rugby game five months after her final treatment. Her teammates thought she was crazy but she opted to play that game with some extra padding over her chest. She did not stop there, she pushed her body further biking 220 miles in the Young Survival Coalition’s Tour de Pink from Philadelphia to Washington. She had an option of the “poop out” bus, that riders could take for the last stretch, but she decided against it and completed the tour biking.

It would have been easy for her to say goodbye to life or to spend her life with the mindset that she was a cancer patient, but she decided on something else. She never gave away hope and decided to live life to the fullest, to do what she always wanted to do and to enjoy each and every moment that life had to offer her.

12 Tips to Help You Prevent Breast Cancer

12 Tips to Help You Prevent Breast Cancer

12 Tips to Help You Prevent Breast Cancer
By PositiveMed-Team
Edited By Stephanie Dawson

Breast cancer is one of the leading forms of cancer and has become a cause for concern in millions around the world. Here are some tips that can help you avoid breast cancer naturally.

1. Be breast aware

Studies show more than 85% cases of breast cancer are detected by victims. Regular self-examination can help you avoid the problem by detecting it early. Do not daily examine your breasts as it can make you overly anxious, try once a month. Look for unusual things and notify your doctor immediately.

2. Stay active

Various studies prove that 45-50 minutes of exercise 3-4 times a week can reduce the risk of breast cancer by more than 30%. Doing things that increase your heartbeat and leave you sweaty is ideal for reducing this risk. It’s not necessary to hit the gym, a simple brisk walk or dancing around the house qualifies as moderate exercise.

3. Maintain healthy weight

One study found that post-menopausal weight gain in women is directly related to breast cancer, a small gain of even 5 kilograms can increase risk of breast cancer. Gaining weight increases estrogen production which results in accumulation of fat tissue responsible for most breast cancers.

4. Breast-feed your babies

Research has established a link between breast-feeding babies and breast cancer, the reason why exactly is unknown at this time. Researchers also believe that if a young mother breast-feeds her baby for an extended period she tends to have better breast health. Breast-feeding reduces the estrogen hormone levels and reduces the risk of breast cancer.

5. Check your alcohol intake

Excess alcohol can increase the likelihood of getting breast cancer, even moderate consumption can be dangerous for breasts, safe quantities are still disputed. Some experts believe that drinking more than 14 units of alcohol per week is bad for overall health.

12 Tips to Help You Prevent Breast Cancer

6. Avoid fat

Consumption of unhealthy fats are responsible for increasing risk of breast cancer. Fat consumption increases the accumulation of fatty tissue which is the leading cause of breast cancer. Unhealthy fats should be replaced with healthy monounsaturated fats like those in nuts.

7. Consider aspirin

Estrogen is the hormone responsible for breast cancer, aspirin is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug which reduces production of estrogen and reduces risk of breast cancer. Consult your doctor before starting this medicine.

8. Avoid pesticides exposure

Recent experiments show frequent exposure to pesticides and other harmful chemicals is linked with breast cancer. These chemicals may be present in rat poisons and mosquito-repellent coils. Try to stay away from such chemicals for reduced breast cancer risk.

9. Control hormone therapy

Prolonged hormone therapy between 3-5 years can increase risk of breast cancer. If you are on hormone therapy because of menopausal symptoms talk to your doctor about replacing it with natural therapies. If unavoidable use the lowest possible dosage that works for you.

10. Don’t smoke

Statistics suggest that smoking is responsible for more than 30% of cancer deaths including breast cancer. Not smoking is the biggest favor you can do for your body.

11. Check your family history

If someone in your family has ever had breast cancer you should be extra cautious. Around 10% of all breast cancer cases are genetically caused. Talk to your family members and include your doctor in discussions so that preventive measures can be taken.

12. Don’t ignore lumps

Sometimes we ignore lumps hoping they will go away and don’t report them to our doctor. This is a big mistake which can make breast cancer uncontrollable due to late identification. Don’t ignore lumps, visit your doctor immediately so that they can be thoroughly checked out.
