On October 19 we talked about 'Why a multidisciplinary treatment is the best option against breast cancer' with the doctor Laura Garcia Estévez, Head of the Breast Tumors Section at MD Anderson Cancer Center Madrid. Prevention is essential in all cancers, and especially breast cancer. Maintain a series of healthy habits, such as not smoking, avoiding alcohol, eating a healthy diet, exercising and maintaining a normal weight prevents up to 30% of cancers overall, including breast cancer, but few people are aware of this reality. This and more explains Dr. García Estévez in this talk, available on video:
