What’s Your Risk?

Your Disease Risk from the Harvard Center for Cancer Prevention guides you through short questionnaires to judge your risk of various kinds of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis and stroke.

I’m doing better than I thought. Better than I would have been a year ago, even. That’s largely thanks to the dietary changes curiousmay9 has helped me with.

Losing weight and increasing my activity level were the most common changes suggested to reduce the risk of various conditions, but I knew that.

It is a bit disconcerting to be told that I should get my tubes tied or have a hysterectomy in order to reduce my risk of ovarian (and uterine? not sure now) cancer. Since having more than one child and breastfeeding for more than a year reduce the risk of several types of cancer, that’s discouraging. Of course, my body isn’t cooperating with having another child, anyway.
