    Too Much Breast Cancer and Not Enough Answers


    In the US, breast cancer rates are out of control. Presently, one in seven US women suffer from breast cancer.

    In 2019, an estimated 268,600 women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer.
    Think about those numbers: One in seven and nearly 270,000 women diagnosed with invasive cancer—THIS YEAR! Those numbers are unacceptable, or at least they should be!

    I think she may be better remembered as news analyst for NPR. I've been listening to her for years. Highly respected, dearly missed.

    As I recall, I always remember Cokie Roberts on ABC News' Sunday morning political Round Table discussion with Sam Donaldson, George Stephanopolis, Donna Brazil, George Will, and others.

    According to American Cancer Society, the breast cancer death rate dropped a whopping 40% from 1989 to 2016. Since 2007, rates have held steady in women younger than 50, but have continued to "decrease" in older women. According to Mary Flynn, Research Dietitian at Miriam Hospital in Rhode Island and co-author of "The Pink Ribbon Diet," the majority of breast cancer cases do not have a genetic link. Diet and other lifestyle factors play a large role. She suggest eating the following five foods to lower your risk: 1. extra virgin olive oil; 2. cruciferous veggies; 3. dark green leafy veggies; 4. tomatoes (lycopene); and 5. fatty fish (omega-3). She also warns to avoid another 5 foods.
