Experts from Harvard University have proved that the eating of sausages significantly increases the risk of developing breast cancer.

The focal point of the #CheckIntoPink campaign is the Go Pink informational webpage filled with helpful links and resources about getting involved and learning more about breast cancer prevention.

Put simply, breast cancer is caused by a genetic abnormality.

It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Representatives from both sides of the aisle, Rod Blum (R-Iowa) and Judy Chu (D-Calif.), have introduced legislation that would require Medicare to fund custom breast prostheses for women who have undergone mastectomy surgery resulting from breast cancer. "It's kind of exciting to come up and be on the track and then talk about breast cancer", survivor Frank Dalton Sr. said. The nonprofit's breast cancer initiatives include research, patient services and educating women on screenings and risk reduction.

"Screening is actually done in women who don't have any symptoms and it's meant to catch the cancer before a women can feel it or has any symptoms".

Researchers looked at existing studies linking the consumption of red and processed meat to breast cancer.

Breast cancer symptoms can vary from person to person. Over the past few years the bank has donated the funds raised from the walk to Breast Friends in support of the continuing work with cancer. "I just kept on going because as a survivor of now going on 24 years, it was good for some of the newbies to see someone that has survived".

The charity reported an average of 445 women in Grampian were diagnosed with breast cancer each year between 2012 to 2016, with a tragic average of 107 women losing their lives to the illness every year during that same period.

Cowboys across the country and in Canada are wearing pink these days in an effort to combat breast cancer. "The more we educate ourselves and others, the closer we get to a cure". This is the theme of breast cancer awareness drive launched on Tuesday by Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre which receives breast cancer patients more than any other type of cancer.

To schedule a mammogram or talk with a doctor about your breast health, Watertown Regional Medical Center and the Center for Women's Health can help.
