4 Simple Breast Cancer Prevention Tips
Chemicals in these plastics for example bisphenol A (BPA) disrupt or mimic estrogen and contribute to the growth of hormone sensitive breast cancers.
My first simple breast cancer prevention tip is to replace plastic storage containers with glass jars.
I use recycled jars and love seeing my ingredients stored this way.
Tip number two, throw away any plastic jugs and replace with metal jugs.
Tea does not need to come with milk, sugar and estrogen mimics.
Tip number three, please buy yourself a metal bottle for your drinking water.
Drinking from plastic bottles is just giving yourself a chemical cocktail.
Metal bottles are not expensive and mine fits easily into my handbag.
So many people leave plastic water bottles in their cars, in the sun. I could scream when I see them.
Tip number four, throw out the plastic rice cooker and buy yourself a clay one.
I brought mine on the internet, it wasn't expensive and it is just the very best cooker.
I use my rice cooker for rice, quinoa, in fact all the pulses.
So may rice cookers have plastic inserts, and plastic, heat and steam are just not a good combination with dinner.
It is interesting how so often the simple things are overlooked when it comes to breast cancer prevention.
These four simple breast cancer prevention tips are so simple and yet they can limit your exposure on a daily basis to chemicals known to cause breast cancer.
