The American Cancer Society recently updated its nutrition and physical activity guidelines for cancer prevention. These updates stress how important it is for everyone, regardless of age, to increase daily physical activity and develop healthy eating habits.
The knowledgeable physicians at Pomona Valley Health Centers (PVHC) wanted to highlight these updates in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month to give people hope and help save lives. Though there is no known way to avoid developing diseases like breast cancer, we can incorporate daily acts of prevention into our daily routines.
Recommendations from the American Cancer Society include:
If you are a woman over the age of 40, be sure to schedule your annual mammogram to lower your breast cancer risk. Mammograms are the best tests doctors have to diagnose breast cancer. Call our specialists at PVHC at 909-378-9512 to schedule your mammogram today.
The staff was extremely helpful and courteous, and the facility was clean and comfortable. An overall wonderful experience.
