Is Sugar To Blame For An Increased Risk Of Breast Cancer?

January 08, 2016 2 min read

Breast cancer is a disease that affects the lives of countless women. You probably know among your friends and family at least one person who has battled breast cancer. It is essential for women of all ages to take the risks seriously and get tested regularly for this life-threatening disease. While the world waits on a cure, the cause of breast cancer might just be linked to a common element in our daily diets - sugar.   A study by The University of Texas has discovered that high quantities of fructose (found in table sugar and high-fructose corn syrup) can lead to tumour growth in the body. Namely, breast cancer tumours. It has also been shown to increase the rate in which cancer spreads from one part of the body to another. We all know that sugar is far too prevalent in the average person's diet and can cause many health complications such as weight gain, heart disease and liver problems. Americans get between 10 and 25 percent of their daily caloric intake from added sugar. This sugar is added to food products like bread, soft drinks, fruit juice and cereal. Consuming vast amounts of sugar certainly isn't doing the body good, so how can we break our sugar dependency?   Start by reading labels carefully to spot how much sugar has been added to your food. Cutting sugar cold-turkey could lead to a binge-eating relapse, so take it slow. Eat consistent, healthy meals rich in protein and omega-3 fats. Keep hydrated and distract yourself from cravings by taking a walk, doing some stretches or grabbing a piece of fruit to snack on. What are your thoughts on this new study? What are your tips for cutting down on added sugar? Source: Elite Daily

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
