Prevention is the Key for Breast Care

Women, Wake Up!

“Prevention is better than cure”

Desiderius Erasmus

As the Dutch philosopher Desiderius Erasmus wisely stated, is a principle that holds even more significance in today’s health-conscious world.

Research highlights that young girls, particularly those aged 13 to 20, can significantly reduce their risk of breast cancer and other diseases later in life by adopting healthy habits early on.

Breast cancer remains the leading cancer among women. It’s crucial to recognize that many causes of breast cancer—such as obesity, smoking, alcoholism, a sedentary lifestyle, hormonal imbalances, stress, and unhealthy habits—are preventable.

By making simple lifestyle changes, young women can take proactive steps toward their long-term health.
