Breast Cancer Awareness Tip No. 17:

Beauty blogger Kalle of Face Candy lost her father to breast cancer, so this tip is for all the men in our lives.

For now, the best strategies for reducing the number of deaths caused by this disease are early detection and prompt treatment. Early detection has been a problem for men, who tend to ignore breast lumps and see their doctor only when they have gotten large. In general, men are diagnosed with cancers at more advanced stages than are women.

Whether you are a man or woman, learn how to perform a self breast exam and perform it every month, please.

Please visit Face Candy today and read Kyle's story and leave a comment.  For each comment, Kyle will personally donate $4 to breast cancer research.


Total Beauty Total Cure and Tip No. 16

Enter now to win $250 worth of AJ hair cosmetics from the beauty blog Beauty Boulevard!

Breast Cancer Prevention Tip No. 16:

Try to breathe clean air.

We may unwittingly expose ourselves to estrogen imposters in our air, food, and water known as xenoestrogens (pronounced zeno-estrogens) that mimic the unhealthful properties of estrogen in the breast tissue. Herbicides and pesticides are a few examples of potential xenoestrogens that we may be exposed to in our air, food, or water. A healthy environment free from xenoestrogen contaminants will help insure a healthy future.

Check back tomorrow for another fabulous giveaway from Total Beauty Total Cure beauty bloggers.

Total Beauty Total Cure and Breast Cancer Tip No. 14

Posted By bectemp on Oct 22, 2008 at 5:11AM

In the spirit of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Total Beauty Total Cure, a group of sixty plus beauty bloggers, have joined together this month to offer breast cancer prevention tips, raise awareness about breast cancer, and to offer free giveaways every day.

Today's beauty treats come from beauty blog Skin Deco ($250 shopping spree from Pür Minerals).  You must enter today!

Before you go, get your breast cancer awareness tip No. 14:

Consider limiting fat in your diet. Results from the most definitive study of dietary fat and breast cancer risk to date suggest a slight decrease in risk of invasive breast cancer for women who eat a low-fat diet. But the effect is modest at best. However, by reducing the amount of fat in your diet, you may decrease your risk of other diseases, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and stroke. And a low-fat diet may protect against breast cancer in another way if it helps you maintain a healthy weight — another factor in breast cancer risk. For a protective benefit, limit fat intake to less than 35 percent of your daily calories and restrict foods high in saturated fat.
