SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – There are some simple ways to reduce the risk of getting breast cancer.
Two breast surgeons from Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center in Sioux Falls gave a cooking presentation at the Hilton Garden Inn on Thursday night.
“Well, I think that women are looking for ways in which they do something to take action for themselves, in terms of their own healthcare. I think that we forget how important it is to use food as a source of taking care of ourselves,” said Dr. Julie Reiland, breast surgeon.
It’s a different way of talking about breast cancer, by sampling foods.
Experts say preventive measures are not just for older women.
“I wish women, and men, our age, college-age, would become more interested in their nutrition,” said Casey Johnson, attendee.
