Breast Milk Cells and Breast Cancer…

Breast Cancer…Let’s Beat It…

As you know I like to post news concerning women’s health issues.

Here is something very noteworthy and I may add very hopeful for treating women who may be at risk for breast cancer,

Breast cancer touches so many families…it has devastated the lives of so many children of women who suffered and died from this disease.

This hopefully is another step in the direction of prevention and cure of breast cancer.

“MONDAY, April 4 (HealthDay News) — Examining cells from a woman’s breast milk may help evaluate future breast health, new research suggests.

“It looks as if we can use the cells from breast milk to assess breast cancer risk,” said Dr. Kathleen Arcaro, an associate professor of veterinary and animal sciences at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst.

She is to present her findings Monday at the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research in Orlando, Fla.
