Why Do My Grandchildren Wear Pink This Month?

October 31, 2012  by: Paulose  Points: 15   Category: Health    Views: 699

My grandchildren are wearing pink some of these days this month. Most of the school students in the US wear pink. Awareness of breast cancer is active in the country. in spite of this the number of breast cancer patients is increasing in the country.


October wears pink in the US and in many parts of the world. Wearing ink is a symbol of breast cancer awareness. October is observed as the breast cancer awareness month. throughout the country, many activities are undertaken to create awareness of this fatal disease growing at an epidemic speed.

Children wear pink dress or add a bit of pink ribbon to their uniform or have pink flowers on their heads and attend breast cancer awareness programs. They buy cups of lemonade during a Pink Drink fundraiser or conduct fund raising events to contribute to the breast cancer awareness programs. They They remember one of their own who succumbed to breast cancer at such occasions.

Breast cancer in the US

Although there is a worldwide rise in breast cancer cases, it is rapidly increasing in the US. Statistics say that more than 425,000 women are killed all over the world by this monstrous disease every year. Most of the breast cancer victims of the developing countries die because of less screening facilities and treatment.

Why does breast cancer increase in the US?

1) Changes in lifestyle and atmosphere have much to do with the increase of this disease. Fast food and junk food also have great part in cancer.

2) Use of alcohol, smoking tobacco, overweight or obesity, especially after menopause stage, are found to develop breast cancer in most of women.

3) Studies reveal that lack of physical exercise is one of the leading causes of cancer. Modern lifestyle does not allow women to even 2-3 hours exercise per week. They do not even walk.

4) Pregnancy and delivery are natural processes of womanhood. Pregnancy and breast feeding reduce breast cancer risk. Late marriage, birth control medications, induced abortion, hormone therapy after menopause, etc. impose the risk of cancer on women.

5) Exposure to radiation, even mammograms before the age of 20, can increase the risk of breast cancer.

Need not be panic

1) Women need not be panic to know about the risks of cancer. It can easily be treated in the earlier stage.

2) Care in time can prevent most of the breast cancer cases. Women should know about the symptoms of breast cancer.

3) If a new lump or bump is found in the breast area it should be brought to the notice of the doctor. Most of the lumps may be caused by benign conditions. They are often found in women after 40.

Breast cancer awareness month is not for causing panic among women. It is to detect breast cancer in the early stage and to prevent the disease. It is to help women who are unable to diagnose or treat. Pink is meant to think.
