I’m Back

ok, i’m human… I get that, but somethings just aren’t fair.

So after my pelvic rotated, my Greenville chiropractor..the wonderful Dr. Barbara Brake adjusted it and helped reduce the swelling and pain oh so gently.  L4 is the last one to reduce in tenderness.

I’m doing SO much better, but still not getting into my kayak..perhaps by mid-week

My SUP board hasn’t arrived either, so I’m pretty much grounded for a while..but on Saturday, I co-teach an SUP class with the County Park and it will be awesome fun…maybe kayak surfing on Friday too!

Everyone else is playing in the water here… summer is rockin.

So lets get back to the reason for this site… breast cancer…. research continues, and studies continue…. still no prevention or cure…. but here’s some news:

A new study conducted by French research organization INSERM, suggests late night work may fuel the risk of developing breast cancer, according to an article published in the International Journal of Cancer.

Results of the study support the possibility of a link between the disruption of the circadian rhythm (which regulates sleep patterns) and breast cancer.

The study looked at a group of 1,232 breast cancer cases—of the cases studied, 13 percent had at some point worked on a night shift.

These late shifts may increase a woman’s risk of cancer by 30 percent.

The bottom line ladies?  GET SLEEP and no regular night shifts (yes, you nurses too!)
