I would be remiss if I didn’t take a moment to recognize October as Breast Cancer Awareness month. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among women (behind heart disease,) but survival rates increase every year thanks to greater education, earlier detection (often by women doing their own exams,) and improvements in modern medicine.
Please enjoy this lovely infographic from Banker’s Healthcare Group and learn a bit more about how to stay informed and healthy. BHG, which offers financial solutions for medical professionals, is involved in breast cancer awareness through events like the “Aiming Fore the Cure” golf tournament which raised funds for the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund of Central NY.
As shown in the infographic, improving your diet and exercise habits can reduce the risk of breast (and other forms) of cancer. So live fit, eat clean, for a healthier, longer life.
