The Power of Prevention
While the early detection of breast cancer and other diseases is important to ensuring effective treatment and recovery options, the power of prevention has received significant medical and scientific attention during the past decade. Continued research is providing new insight into simple ways people can significantly reduce their risk of certain diseases, and our mission is to help our readers learn more about these proven methods of achieving greater health. While others are working tirelessly to find a cure, by focusing our attention on prevention - we want to help you live long enough to see it!
Maintain Healthy Weight Levels. Fat tissue produces excess amounts of estrogen, high levels of which have been associated with an increased risk of breast, endometrial, and some other cancers. Fat cells also produce hormones called adipokines that may stimulate cell growth which may aid in tumor growth. For example, leptin, which is more abundant in overweight people, has shown to promote cell proliferation. (Plexus Slim & Boost or Accelerator: Retail - $114.95, Preferred Customer - $99.85)
Maintain Healthy Glucose & Insulin Levels. Excess weight is also linked to increased levels of insulin and insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) in the blood (a condition known as insulin resistance), which may promote the development of certain tumors.

Maintain Healthy Breast Tissue. Women diagnosed with certain benign breast conditions might have an increased risk of breast cancer, with some of these conditions are more closely linked to breast cancer risk than others. (Plexus Body Cream: Retail - $49.95, Preferred Customer - $39.95)
Maintain Healthy Digestion. A healthier gut seems to promote a more favorable ration of estrogen metabolites. In addition to supporting digestion, intestinal bacteria that reside in the gut influence how women's bodies process estrogen. Intestinal bacteria determine whether estrogen continues circulating through the body or is eliminated. (Plexus ProBio5: Retail - $34.95, Preferred Customer - $29.95)
Maintain a Healthy Body pH. Research has proven the link between acidic pH and cancer. Cancer thrives in an acidic environment and cannot survive in an alkaline environment. Studies conducted in several experimental tumor models in the 1980's found that the use of alkaline minerals to raise body pH levels led to decreased tumor growth and fewer deaths in certain mice with cancerous tumors, such as those with sarcoma or breast cancer.

The Benefits of Early Detection
Through the early detection of breast cancer, people are empowered to make important and healthy decisions that can stop the spread of cancer and rid the body of the disease altogether. While there is no known cure for breast cancer, we have made astounding progress in the detection and treatment of this prevalent disease. However, these advancements in technology and pharmacology are only useful when breast cancer is found at its earliest stages. Becoming aware of the monthly changes in your breast tissue is an important step to the detection of breast cancer. What may not have been detectable last month, may have grown to a size where it is detectable now. Please perform a monthly breast self-exam, and monitor any changes in your breast tissue.
Be aware of the feeling of your breast tissue, and aware of any changes in the tissue over time which may lead to the earliest identification of a health issue if one arises....and don't be afraid to consult with your doctor if you feel any abnormality. It's always better to be SAFE and proactive with your health! Not all lumps and bumps in breast tissue are cancerous. Most abnormalities are benign and pose no risk at all!
