Milk Donor MamaOhioAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Actionable informationMay 24, 2018Milk Donor MamaOhioAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Breasts: The Owner's Manual: Every Woman's Guide to Reducing Cancer Risk, Making Treatment Choices, and Optimizing Outcomes by Dr. Kristi Funk is a comprehensive guide to breasts and breast health.
The book begins with an overview of anatomy. The language isn't technical or scientific, making it easy to understand. Dr. Funk does give you the scientific names in case you want to do some research on your own. Next is a list of breast and breast cancer myths, along with a nutrition guide. A thorough discussion of risk factors is also included. For example, 87 percent of women with breast cancer did not have a first-degree relative with the disease. I was surprised by that, and I'm trained as an epidemiologist who took cancer epidemiology and worked in infectious and chronic diseases.
Dr. Funk also explains treatment options, including proactive mastectomy. What I liked the most about the book was that it gives you an action plan to lower your risk of breast cancer, starting now. The plan is simple enough and could be implemented in steps for affecting positive life changes. I thought a little more attention could have been paid to breastfeeding and its positive effects on breast health and reduction of breast cancer risk.
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher.
