The BRCA gene test is a blood test that uses DNA analysis to identify harmful changes (mutations) in either one of the two breast cancer susceptibility genes — BRCA1 and BRCA2.

The BRCA gene test is offered to those who are likely to have an inherited mutation based on a personal or family history of breast cancer or ovarian cancer. The BRCA gene test isn't routinely performed on people at average risk of breast and

Three peaches a day may prevent breast cancer…wow! What an accessible and delicious measure to incorporate into your breast health.

These compounds are called polyphenols and they exist in other “stone fruits” but are of particularly high concentration in peaches. These compounds act as antioxidants and can protect DNA against damage that can produce cancer. Noratto et al. published
