breast health is a monumental shift in thinking and
action, away from passive resignation and toward
proactive empowerment. Women are in the position to
profoundly impact their future breast health with a
little-known, yet scientifically established,
approach coined the "estrogen window."
Your lifetime exposure to estrogen is the most
well-known risk factor for contracting breast
cancer. The cumulative exposure to estrogens during
your lifetime is referred to as your estrogen
window. Influences that increase and extend exposure
to estrogen are said to "open" the window. Those
that reduce or shorten exposure are said to "close"
it. The wider and longer the window is left open,
the greater your risk for breast health challenges.
