Male breast cancer may not seem so much of a concern as compared with female breast cancer. Breast cancer in men, however, is just as crucial as it is for women and therefore, even if you think your chances of developing it are feeble, you must try your best to prevent its occurrence; prevention is better than cure.


When it comes to keeping oneself immune to the possibility of a tumour attack, what works is the quality of life. If you have lived most of your life stressing, avoiding movement and binging, you will be predisposed to suffer from some form of a life-threatening disease, which may as well be breast cancer. Here are some positive changes you can make to your lifestyle and prevent breast cancer.

Diet

The kind of food we eat and the choices we make regarding what our plates should be served with has a direct relationship with our prospect of developing breast cancer. You must, however, make sure that you do not make extreme changes lest you end up losing excess weight and begin to lack nutrition.


You must make those changes that you are comfortable making. Of course, the change might quirk you a little in the beginning but motivate yourself to think that the long-term effects of a minor change today will help you live a longer, healthier life.


Some powerful food choices include the following:

Tomatoes: the FDA allows tomatoes and tomato-based products to carry the health claim that they are active against prostate and breast cancer risk.

Walnuts: walnuts are a great source of protein, healthy fats and fiber. Walnuts also are high in heart-healthy omega-3 oils that have been shown to have antioxidant properties.

Blueberries
: these have pigment-producing anthocyanins that prevent cancer.

Exercise

As mentioned before, a sedentary lifestyle can drain your health. So, get out and start exercising. You must try exercising at least 3 hours a week, whether you plan to workout at the gym or walk the mile.

 

Meditation

Meditation is an alternative form of treatment for most of life’s minor and major problems. The health of your body starkly also depends on the health of your mind. Taking time out in the day for yourself can help you to bring your mind and body together, thus adding strength for you and for your loved ones.
