086: Let’s talk about the ‘girls’ and cancer

It’s officially Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Every October, people all over the world show their support for people affected by breast cancer. Women share experiences from mammograms, ultrasounds and biopsies to raise breast cancer awareness. The spotlight is put on the importance of screenings, advocacy, how to help and where to get help. Women are even turning their Christmas trees into breast cancer awareness trees! Holly and Dr. Oakley, aka “Breasties,” will go over a few of the myths that surround breast cancer. In this episode, they will discuss:

• Can eating raw onions and garlic every day reduce a woman’s risk of getting breast cancer?
• Can drinking coffee reduce the chance of a woman getting breast cancer?
• Can a woman who dyes her hair more than six times a year get breast cancer?
• Can drinking beer help prevent breast cancer in women?
