WB033: Breast Cancer: The genes that influence your risk of developing Breast Cancer with Fitgenes Naturopath Rebecca Hall.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month in Australia and in this episode Naturopath Rebecca Hall from Fitgenes discusses the genes which influence the development of Breast Cancer in Women and Men. The recent landmark High Court case which ruled in favour of Yvonne D’Arcy, a breast cancer survivor who challenged the patent on the isolated BRCA1 gene will mean that testing and research can be carried out widely and cost effectively in the future in Australia. Fitgenes currently tests for a number of other gene mutations involved in Breast Cancer: CYP1B1, COMT, GSTP1 and MnSOD. A research study has indicated an increased risk associated with the combined effect of these four genes in post menopausal women but a minimal risk when looking at each gene individually. Certain combinations of these genes can increase the risk of breast cancer by 1,100% but as discussed in this episode the risk can be reduced with lifestyle interventions. This is a personal episode for Rebecca whose Grandmother was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and Holistic Nutrition and Wellness Coach Carolyn Gray whose mother was diagnosed at aged 80 years. A topical issue for everyone and a very informative episode looking at ways to be proactive with your own health by exploring the latest advances in DNA testing to inform and empower you about your own genetics and therefore your risk of disease development.
