Breast Cancer Quiz:


Women with low levels of physical activity and higher body mass index levels are at more than twice the risk of developing breast cancer than women who undertake approximately three metabolic equivalent hours (MET) per day, per year, of exercise, and have lower BMI levels, the researchers (at Meharry Medical College and the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center) found. A 25 kg/m2 body mass index among Western women is considered to be normal weight, while a BMI of 25 kg/m2 among Asian women is considered to be in the overweight category and was associated with an increased breast cancer risk in this study.

Stay Positive

Even the most successful people in the world are never completely satisfied with themselves. This is a natural feeling to all human beings and often time drives people to reach their full potential. Unfortunately, the problem comes when self dissatisfaction turns into self doubt. Often, we feel frustrated or discouraged about the past, and we project those feelings of doubt and disappointment into the future.

However the future has not happened yet. So it really makes very little sense to be negative about it. The future is full of
outstanding opportunities. You are in control of your own future, which is not determined by your past. It is determined by you, and by the actions you take on a day to day basis.

Use your frustration and past failures not as an excuse to doubt yourself, but as an opportunity to learn and improve your future. Avoid negative thinking, look past the doubt, and you'll discover bright future. Try to identify your obstacles, and refuse to let them get in your way. Challenge yourself to turn the negative into a positive. In every difficult situation, there is opportunity. In order to see that opportunity and take advantage of it, you must stay positive, and continue to look for it.
