I'll be posting health tips during this month as part of our Breast Health Awareness Campaign-

PINK TIP - Women who have poor diets, low in antioxidants and high in omega-6 fats (vegetable oils such as corn, safflower, sunflower, peanut, soybean and canola oils), are at much greater risk for breast cancer. Likewise, women with chronic diseases such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, colitis, and other autoimmune disorders are at substantially higher risk of cancer with yearly mammograms.

NB: Canola and Soy oils are used in Promise, Smart Balance, other margarines and prodcuts as "plant sterols". In most cases these oils are genetically modified which causes other health risks.
