Question from Susan: Can you say that women who follow a holistic lifestyle have fewer cases of breast cancer than those who do not? Are studies being done?
Answers - Marisa Weiss, M.D. This is a very important question, and it is one that is difficult to study carefully in large groups of women. All of us certainly recognize that a holistic lifestyle is most likely to give you a greater sense of well-being. Whatever you can do to strengthen yourself physically and emotionally will put you in the best position possible to protect yourself from harmful changes. This may include changes like cancer.
