A Pink October

October has become known as the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The annual international health campaign is organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for further research. I know many of us have been touched by breast cancer in one way or another. A mother, sister, friend, neighbor, or coworker diagnosed with breast cancer these days is not uncommon. Breast Cancer comprises 22.9% of all cancers in women. What do we do about it? The World Cancer Research Fund says that women can reduce their risk of breast cancer by maintaining a healthy weight, drinking less alcohol, and maintaining themselves physically active. These small lifestyle modifications might 
prevent 38% of breast cancers in the US, 42% in the UK, 28% in Brazil and 20% in China and that seems very worth it. So cheers to a happy and healthy Pink October!
