According to a recent study, psychological distress and severe life events may increase one’s risk of breast cancer.
Young women who were exposed to a number of life events, should be considered as a risk group for [breast cancer] and treated accordingly.
The good news?
On the other hand, general feelings of happiness and optimism can play a protective role against the disease.
All the more reason to come out to Bloomington’s Breast Cancer Awareness Walk on September 20th. The walk is free, although donations are gratefully accepted. Give a few bucks, make new friends, share loads of smiles.
I’ll see you there.
