3 Lifestyle Changes May Reduce Breast Cancer Risk

Posted on February 11, 2016 by Disability Help Group

According to a report from the Doctor’s Lounge, the U.S. National Cancer Institute has developed a model which points to 3 lifestyle changes that can reduce the risk of breast cancer. If you find yourself unable to work while you’re undergoing treatment for a severe medical condition, then you may be entitled to receive long-term disability benefits.

3 Lifestyle Changes that Can Reduce Risk of Breast Cancer

  • body mass index (BMI);
  • physical activity; and
  • less alcohol consumption.

These are lifestyle choices that are considered controllable in which individuals can do something about them.

Researchers indicate that women who are over the age of 50 should have a BMI that’s less than 25 and women, in their 30’s, should also be getting in at least 2 hours of exercise per week.

5 Unchangeable Lifestyle Areas That May Contribute to Breast Cancer

  • job activity;
  • biopsy history;
  • family history;
  • education; and
  • reproductive characteristics.

Knowing the risk factors for breast cancer can at least help direct women to get regular checkups. Early detection can save lives.

If you have questions concerning eligibility, filing a claim or appealing one that’s been denied, then you should immediately speak with a long-term disability representative.

Long-term disability benefits may be available to those who have purchased a disability plan from a private insurer or have coverage through an employer. Unfortunately, the insurers don’t make it easy for the disabled to get access to the benefits they deserve. When a severe medical condition makes it impossible for you to work and you’ve been denied your long-term disability benefits, a representative from Disability Help Group, P.A. can help you cut through the red tape and fight for your benefits, no matter where you live in the U.S!  Contact a Disability Help Group representative today – 1-(800)-800-3332.
