PREFORM A SELF BREAST EXAM REGULARLY

Get into the habit of examining your breasts once a month, a few days after your period ends, when your breasts are less likely to the swollen or painful because of hormonal changes.

Inspect your breast in front of the mirror with arms on your sides and then above your head. Check for any skin or shape changes. Squeeze each nipple and check for discharge – yellow or bloody fluid is something to worry about. Next, examine each breast for lumps while standing, and again while lying down. Be sure to cover the whole area of the breast by starting with the nipples and then moving outward in circles.

SWEET AND SNEAKY

Despite our desire to cut back on sugar, it’s not always easy to make the healthiest choices. Comparing two nutrition labels, for example, you might be tempted to pick the product with less sugar. But if that label comes from a powdered flavored drink, and all of its sugar is added, you get all the calories but no natural nutrients. The other product, although with a higher sugar content on its nutrition label, may be a pure orange juice, and all its sugar is a natural component of the orange, part of a healthy package that includes a variety of vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals. To decode this information when you’re grocery shopping, check out the ingredients list on the package. Steer clear of products that list sugar first. And be on the lookout for the sweetener’s many aliases, including sucrose, fructose, syrup, evaporated cane juice, cane crystals, fruit juice concentrate, honey and molasses.

Flexible mortgages - allow you to alter your repayments to suit your situation. If some months you feel you'd like to pay a little extra, you can. Also, if you decide that you would like to pay less or take a break for a period - you can do that too. Most flexible mortgages charge interest on a daily or monthly rate which means if you can pay more than the set repayment, on a regular basis, you could reduce the term of your mortgage and save money.

Cash back mortgages - will give you a cash lump sum once you've completed on your purchase. This can be either a set amount of money or a percentage of the amount you have borrowed. However, if you repay the mortgage in full within a given time (three to five years) then the cash back must be repaid.

CHEMICALS IN OUR COOKING

If you haven’t heard of acrylamide yet, you soon will. Acrylamide is a chemical that used in tiny quantities to purify water and that has been shown in lab tests to damage DNA and cause cancer in animals. Food like chips and crips contained high levels of acrylamide. It is formed when starchy foods are cooked at very high temperature usually by frying, roasting or baking but not necessarily when they’re boiled, steamed or microwave.

Acrylamide is known to cause cancer in animals and it is carrying out further research on the subject.

New Year, New You! Remember, even the smallest of lifestyle changes can bring significant results. So, come on! Let’s work that body!!!

Sugar Check – four out of 100 Filipinos have Type 2 diabetes – the diabetes that is developed, as a opposed to being inherited. When your blood sugar increases, it may cause a number of problems including wound infections, blindness, and kidney infections. A person with diabetes also increases his risk for heart disease by two to four times, and has two to four times more chances of having a stroke. Unfortunately, there is no cure for diabetes. It is thus important to guard against becoming diabetic as it is a preventable disease.

What to do – have a healthy diet. Lower your intake of saturated fats or fat from animal sources. Eat more fiber. Type 2 diabetes is a preventable disease, and can be avoided by eating and living healthy. Exercise – Do so for at least 30 min five to seven times a week. If you’re on the heavy side, lose weight. Studies have shown that losing five to ten percent of your body weight and eating healthy can swing the probability of you not developing diabetes by as much as 58 percent.

Breast check – Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the Philippines, and one of the highest causes of deaths in the country. It is commonly found among women between 40 to 60 years old. Breast cancer usually manifests itself through a breast mass or an itchy, non-healing sore on the nipple. If you’re lactating, watch out for a watery or yellowish discharge from your nipple. If you have any bloody nipple discharge, go to the doctor right away. High risk patients include those who have first degree relatives with breast cancer. Obesity may also predispose one to breast cancer. People who are overweight have more estrogen, a fat based hormone, and are more at risk for developing cancer.

What to do – do self breast examinations two weeks after your menstruation. Eighty to eighty five percent of breast cancers are discovered by patients themselves. Visit your doctor regularly for a professional examination. Detection is keys to survival. Have an annual breast examination by a doctor. If you’re over 40 or you belong to the high risk group you must have an annual mammography.
