From the womb to our later years, our bodies undergo remarkable transformations, and our breast cancer risk reflects these changes. Understanding the factors influencing our risk throughout life allows us to make informed choices to safeguard our health.
Our life stage pages talk about Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals (EDCs). These harmful chemicals can interfere with your endocrine system, which uses your hormones to regulate the changes in your body. These changes may increase your risk of breast cancer. EDCs can be found in the environment, the products you use daily, and food and water.
