Publisher's Description

A national bestseller! Breast cancer surgeon Dr. Kristi Funk offers a comprehensive and encouraging approach to breast care and breast cancer. Empower yourself with facts and strategies to understand your breasts, reduce your cancer risk, and open your eyes to interventions and treatments.

Most women don’t want to hear about breast cancer unless they have it and need to make some decisions, but these days news about breast cancer—the number one killer of women ages twenty to fifty-nine—is everywhere. Chances are you know someone who has had it. But did you know that choices you make every day bring you closer to breast cancer—or move you farther away? That there are ways to reduce your risk factors? And that many of the things you’ve heard regarding the causes of breast cancer are flat-out false?

Based on Dr. Kristi Funk’s experience as a board-certified breast cancer surgeon, she knows for a fact that women have the power to reduce breast cancer risk in dramatic ways. Many women believe that family history and genetics determine who gets breast cancer, but that’s not true for most people. In fact, 87 percent of women diagnosed with breast cancer do not have a single first-degree relative with breast cancer.

This book will help you:

  • Learn the breast-health basics that every woman should know
  • Reduce your cancer risk and recurrence risk based on food choices and healthy lifestyle changes backed by rigorous scientific research
  • Understand the controllable and uncontrollable risk factors for breast cancer
  • Outline your medical choices if you're at elevated risk for or are already navigating life with breast cancer

There have been few solid guidelines on how to improve your breast health, lower your risk of getting cancer, and make informed medical choices after treatment—until now. With her book available in 10 languages and in more than 30 countries, Dr. Funk is passionate about her mission of educating as many women as possible about what they can do to stop breast cancer before it starts.

Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly - Breast cancer surgeon Funk offers a comprehensive and empowering approach to breast care and breast cancer in this well-written manual. Although Funk (who performed actress Angelina Jolie's widely publicized double prophylactic mastectomy) spends a good portion of the book on breast cancer diagnosis and treatment, she also provides a wealth of tips on how women can decrease their risk of developing the disease. The extensive research she shares can be overwhelming, but she lightens things up with jocular comments and blunt asides (quit smoking now, she advises, or you will look 'ugly at your own funeral'). While her subject is weighty, Funk's voice is empowering and inspirational: she urges women to make lifestyle choices that will improve their odds for not getting breast cancer, including cutting out or limiting meat in favor of a plant-based diet. Though she produces numbers showing breast cancer on the rise worldwide, Funk asserts her goal is not to 'scare' but to 'incentivize' readers. This information-packed manual will be of value to women of all ages and all stages of life, and certainly to those who have been touched by breast cancer.
