Throw your night lights away, turn your TVs off, and your lamps.. The success of your breast cancer therapy is depending on it. A study by Tulane University School of Medicine has found exposure to light at night, which turns off your body’s ability to produce the natural hormone melatonin, renders breast cancer completely resistant to tamoxifen. Widely used for breast cancer therapy, the effectiveness of tamoxifen relies on the role of melatonin to help combat cancer cells in the human body.

Exposure to light at night, which shuts off nighttime production of the hormone melatonin, renders breast cancer completely resistant to tamoxifen, a widely used breast cancer drug, says a new study by Tulane University School of Medicine cancer researchers.

You may think you are taking all the proper measures to protect your family and home by throwing out hazardous chemicals that were once considered miracle products but what about the chemicals you cannot see or smell? "P" chemicals, found in shower curtains, carpets, flooring, insulation and appliances, can hang around for decades, are seldom listing on labels, and have recently been found to cause severe health problems. Read more about the different types of "P" chemicals, tips on how to reduce your exposure, and more with Breastcancer.org Think Pink, Live Green article: Hidden Invaders: Avoiding Chemicals in Home Furnishings http://community.breastcancer.org/livegreen/hidden-invaders-avoiding-chemicals-in-home-furnishings/

Finding a surgeon can seem overwhelming, but going to a specialist is the best way to ensure your health and happiness. A study done at the University of California found complications rates were higher for those who performed the procedure a smaller number of times. Before surgery, ask your doctor how many breast reconstructions he has performed this year. http://news.doximity.com/entries/1457155

Beating breast cancer is “Not Beyond Us.”

Today is #WorldCancerDay and to mark it we are joining organisations across over the world in sharing this important message. We’ve set a deadline for overcoming breast cancer by 2050 because we know that the day when we outlive breast cancer is #NotBeyondUs. Our research team have put together a blog to talk about what today means to us: http://bit.ly/1DEQrJd

A woman’s risk of breast cancer approximately doubles if she has a first-degree relative (mother, sister, daughter) who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. About 15% of women who get breast cancer have a family member diagnosed with it. With this information in mind, does genetic testing interest you?

The most amazing facility, physicians and health care providers I have ever had the pleasure to work with. I would give them 10 stars if I could!
