It's one of those things that you probably do not spend too much time thinking about. In fact, if you're like me, about once a month in the shower you remember to "feel yourself up" and look for lumps, then you go on with your daily life for the next, oh, 25 to 40 days, before recalling that it's been a while since you checked and you probably ought to do it again. And most doctors say that at least until you're in your 40's or 50's, that's fine.

But after one of my dear friends discovered a lump in her breast and scared us all to death during her surgery and treatment as we faced the fact we might lose her, I started wondering if there was something else that I could do to help keep myself safe. I did a little research, and here are 3 simple things that you can do to help prevent breast cancer. Of course, these should not take the place of monthly self-exams or any annual checkups that are appropriate for your age and health history.

1. Maintain a healthy body weight

I know, I know. Easier said than done. But basically, try not to lose or gain more than about 15 pounds on a regular basis. Uneven, drastic weight loss and gain - that's right, yo-yo dieting - increases your odds of developing breast cancer!

2. Take a daily vitamin

Getting the right amounts of vitamins C, A, E and D - and all the rest of them for that matter - contributes to your body's ability to fight off health problems - including rogue cells that might become cancerous.

3. Get plenty of omega 3

Omega 3 fatty acids, found in salmon oil and other fatty fish, are anti-inflammatory agents that researchers suspect may literally "calm" cells that are prone to reproducing out of control. Most people opt for a daily omega 3 supplement to make sure that they get their omega 3s every day rather than trying to consume enough fish to meet the bill.

Of course, as a woman you should always keep your breast health in mind and follow any and all doctor's orders. To learn more about omega 3 fatty acids, fish oil and breast health, access
