Typically, cancer is much more likely to develop as you get older. The non-profit BreastCancer.org even states:2
“ … the aging process is the biggest risk factor for breast cancer. That’s because the longer we live, there are more opportunities for genetic damage (mutations) in the body. And as we age, our bodies are less capable of repairing genetic damage.”
So why is it that so many younger women are now being struck by this potentially deadly disease?
