According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, as little as three hours of exercise per week, or about 30 minutes a day, a woman can begin to lower her risk of breast cancer. This doesn’t require going to a gym either. Power walking is more than sufficient!

According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, a nutritious, low-fat diet (30 grams or less) with plenty of fruits and green and orange vegetables can help reduce the risk of developing breast cancer.

The District is awash in pink in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Many of us on Long Island and in the South Huntington community have had a loved one affected by this disease, so to honor those lives impacted and to support research, our students, sports teams and faculty are busy increasing awareness of the disease and raising funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure.
