    Your Weight and Your Risk of Breast Cancer | Dr. Kristi Funk

    Your Weight and Your Risk of Breast Cancer | Dr. Kristi Funk

    When it comes to breast cancer your weight matters. Just gaining 8 pounds since graduating high school can make a woman 25% more likely to develop breast cancer. And for women who have gained more than 25 pounds the risk is four times higher than that!
     
    Breast cancer surgeon and best-selling author Dr. Kristin Funk discusses why excess fat tempts cancer in your body and outlines the steps you can take to lower your risk when she joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll on The Exam Room.
     
    You will also learn how losing weight can exponentially reduce the odds of breast cancer and why a plant-based diet is the best diet for achieving that!
     
    This is the fourth of four special episodes dedicated to breast cancer.
     
    Dr. Funk is helping to lead the Let's Beat Breast Cancer campaign with the Physicians Committee. She encourages women to take the four-week LBBC challenge to improve their health and reduce their risk for breast cancer.

    Top Anti-Estrogen Foods with Dr. Kristi Funk + NBA Mom and Breast Cancer Survivor Lorraine Fox

    Four out of five breast cancer cases are fed by estrogen. Certain foods can lower the amount produced by the body and subsequently reduce the risk of developing breast cancer. They also downgrade the risk of recurrence among breast cancer survivors.

    Also on this double episode, Chuck speaks with Lorraine Fox who is a breast cancer survivor and mother of NBA star De'Aaron Fox. While raising a future first-round pick is a remarkable achievement, it is her battle with breast cancer that makes Lorraine a superstar in her own right.
     
    She shares the emotional story of her will to survive after being diagnosed with the disease not long after it took her sister's life. Plus, she opens up about the touching tribute De'Aaron paid to on the night he entered the NBA.
     
    The inspiring mother and son have teamed up to launch the Fox Whole Family Foundation which benefits those whose lives have been impacted by breast cancer. Through the foundation, Lorraine and De'Aaron advocate for increased awareness, testing, and treatment for women fighting this disease.
     
    This is the third of four special episodes dedicated to breast cancer.
     
    Dr. Funk is helping to lead the Let's Beat Breast Cancer campaign with the Physicians Committee. She encourages women to take the four-week LBBC challenge to improve their health and reduce their risk for breast cancer.
