Your Diet Could Increase Your Risks for Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is something most women worry about when they get to be between 40 and 50 years old, but new research may have younger women looking into their unhealthy eating habits.
A new study from the Huffington Post now shows that eating habits earlier in life could lead to a higher risk for breast cancer. The study suggests that women who eat unhealthy foods and not digesting proper nutrients could be at higher risk.
This has some women scared about their future.
"I mean it's definitely scary. It runs in my family. My doctor is actually doing a baseline test at age 35, which is 10 years before my grandmother was diagnosed," says Meredith Smith, Wetzel County resident.

Another easy way to get tested for breast cancer is to have yearly mammograms and check-ups with your doctor, especially if breast cancer runs in the family. One woman says doctors should use this warning to help women get tested for cancer at earlier ages.

"I think they should test before age 40 to catch it earlier," says Ashley Phillips, Elkins resident.

The study also shows that women should try to eat more nutrients from plants like avocados, nuts, and even fish.
