It is not wise to blame it on the ignorance levels that are eating up our ladies in society. Some of the measures taken to protect and care for our breasts are entirely up to us, the ladies. I am saying this with regard to the dress code we assume and whether we attend check-ups as regularly as we should. These are just to mention but a few of the ways in which we should take proper care of our breasts.
It is a commonly misunderstood perception that the breasts are there to attract members of the male fraternity. So long as they are used for all the wrong intentions and purposes, their presence on the ladies’ chests will continue to be misunderstood. Though some of us are still in the dark about how to take proper care of the breasts, we shall start afresh and shed some light on this topic.
Proper breast care
How they are handled
We, first, have to begin with the crucial topic on how they are handled. Studies show that the breasts are alive and have different reactions to how they are handled and touched. This means that it is not right for a lady to subject them to all pair of hands from the opposite gender to touch, fondle, and caress. Some even go as far as allowing random men to suckle them like babies would. This results in the breasts losing their natural shape and firmness.
A respectable lady has to be conscious of whom she allows to touch her breasts and how they do it. What’s more, even if the husband or partner is the only one with authorized access to them, he has to handle them with all gentleness and care. He has to bear in mind that they belong to a human being who is alive and has feelings. However, mishandling them and doing so frequently will lead to other gross and miscalculated damages that not even the lady herself is aware of.
Another important feature is to allow them space to breathe. This is a fact that must be adhered to especially at the end of the day when the lady is ready to retire to bed. This is because as she lays her head on the pillow to sleep, it will give her great comfort to know that her breasts are free to exhale. Most of the ladies end up missing the point and do the exact opposite.
If you intend to enhance the size of your boobs, make sure that you are using the right method. As much as possible, take advantage of the natural ways. Or, if you are considering utilizing commercial products such as pills and creams, get those that have been proven to be safe.
Other ways to take care of your boobs
As promised, I’ll try not to assume that every lady is familiar with the general needs of her breasts. She is to follow some factual and effective tips on how she will keep her breasts always in perfect shape. Some of them include;
- Mind your sitting posture. Not many ladies are aware, but the breasts are affected either negatively or positively depending on the sitting posture assumed. For safety reasons, the lady should always assume an upright posture.
- The dressing must not always be tight. This means that blood circulation is interfered with and hindered. When this happens, a lady is breasts run the risk of suffering from some complications related to the breasts.
- Keep them warm and covered at all times especially when you are without the confines of your home.
Healthcare is out of reach of many American Children and those who are covered enjoy few benefits. If your kid’s are left out of insurance don’t worry as there are some inclusive programs and some that are specifically made for kids.
Medicaid is targeted towards families with limited income including children and pregnant women. This program covers both U.S citizens and lawfully admitted immigrants whose parents may not be legal. On the other hand there is the CHIP program that covers all children under 19 whose parents earn too much to be admitted to the Medicaid program but cannot afford to pay for insurance. In most cases a family of four with income of up to 48,500 per year qualifies.
How to find a health care provider who accepts Medicaid or CHIP
· Contact relevant agencies in your state to find information on registered healthcare providers.
· Ask the current doctor whether they accept your health plan and if they don’t, try finding one who does.
CHIP and Medicaid eligibility
Enrollment period is unlimited for Medicaid or CHIP and coverage begins immediately for those who qualify. You need to fill out an application form to find out whether you are eligible or make a call to the state health department. If anyone in your household is disqualified this information will be sent to the relevant state agency who will contact you.
Parents, guardians and authorized people can apply for Medicaid or CHIP on behalf of children but there are some exceptions to this rule. Where the state allows it, teenagers living alone can apply on their own behalf. Parents, guardians and authorized people are allowed to apply for Medicaid or CHIP on behalf of children but there are some exceptions to this rule. Where the state allows it, teenagers living alone can apply on their own behalf.
Coverage might differ from state to state but routine checkups, immunization, prescriptions, doctor visits and emergency services are all covered in all parts. CHIP coverage is free in most states but there are some who charge a monthly plan. However, the amount you pay in this plan shouldn’t exceed 5% of your family’s annual income.
Marketplace insurance for kids
You might choose a private insurance plan for your kids but that will only add to your health insurance costs. Children that are eligible for CHIP don’t enjoy any savings on marketplace insurance.
With so many affordable options, kids can enjoy premium insurance services that guarantee their safety despite their family income. It is easy to find out if you are eligible by visiting the official government health website or relevant state agency.
Relationship between breast cancer and pregnancy.
However, researchers and physicians are all in agreement that there exists a link between breast cancer and pregnancy. Based on research conducted within the last decade, the risk of breast cancer increases within the first 2 to 15 years after a pregnancy. Contrastingly, women who give birth to their first children before the age of 30 are less likely to suffer from post-menopausal breast cancer.
This means that women’s long-term risk of breast cancer increases when they give birth after their fortieth birthday. Researchers have come up with theories to explain the link between breast cancer and pregnancy after 40.
Pregnancy hormones cause genetic changes
It is a widely accepted fact that hormones released during pregnancy trigger genetic changes. These genetic changes occur particularly in the mammary glands and contribute to the maturity of breast cells. The maturity of breast cells helps protect the body against breast cancer. Thus, women who get pregnant after their fortieth birthday are at a higher risk of breast cancer. The reason being that such women have been exposed to more estrogen than younger women. Estrogen is a hormone that has been linked to increased risk of breast cancer.
Genetic changes increase with age
The link between breast cancer and pregnancy after 40 can be attributed to increased chances of genetic changes. The chances of genetic changes increase with age. Thus women who get pregnant when they are aged 40 years or older are more likely to develop genetic changes during pregnancy. These genetic changes contribute to the development of cancerous cells in the breasts. These cancerous cells lead to breast cancer.
Age and the link between breast cancer and pregnancy after 40
During pregnancy, a woman’s breast cells grow rapidly. This rapid growth can result in genetic damage in the breast cells. Genetic damage has been associated with increased risk of breast cancer. Furthermore, the chances of genetic damage due to rapid cell growth increases with age.
Thus women aged 35 years and over are at a higher risk of genetic damage. Thus, if the genes in one cell get damaged, the damaged is copied to the other developing cells. This increases the risk of breast cancer. In essence, women who have children after reaching age 40 are at a higher risk of breast cancer due to genetic damage. Also, based on research, the risk of breast cancer increases with age, thus older women are at a higher risk than their younger counterparts.
