Maybe just thinking about the issue of breast cancer makes you want to get off this page. But that will do nothing to change your risk. With each decade of your life, your odds of developing this disfiguring disease increase.

If you’re educated, drink alcoholic beverages, and have no children or give birth late in life, you’re in the highest percentile for getting breast cancer.

The good news is that you have the power to change the odds — but only with the right information and appropriate action.
