When I was diagnosed I could tick all the boxes for protective factors - breast fed babies, didn't drink much or smoke, not obese etc etc and I still got cancer. Now we are made to feel as if our breasts are ticking time bombs, particularly if we eat grapefruit, drink wine/don't drink wine, use the wrong deodorant, fail to exercise enough, hate beetroot and blueberries etc etc. The numbers are increasing, yet as Wildcard says it has to be something WE as women are doing or failing to do. That is rubbish. It is either environmental or cursed bad luck. I suspect both are more to blame than anything we can have a direct impact on.
