Bacterial Breakthrough PREVENTS Breast Cancer?
I have some good news and some bad news about breast cancer.
The good news is that rates have decreased steadily over the past 20 years.
The bad news is that this killer still claims the lives of tens of thousands of women every year.
Early detection is great—but prevention is even better.
Recently researchers made a shocking discovery about breast cancer. And what they uncovered not only could PREVENT it, but it could also lead to even earlier ways to detect it.
We already know that the trillions of bacteria living in your gut play a significant role in your health.
For optimal health, the good bacteria should outnumber the bad—and the more diversity, the better.
Most of the research in this area is about gut bacteria, which is often called your microbiome.
But it turns out that breast tissue has its own microbiome
For years, researchers have suspected that these breast bacteria play a role in breast cancer. Now, scientists have taken a big step toward proving it.
This breakthrough study revealed a difference in the bacterial composition of women with breast cancer compared to women who are cancer-free.
The researchers discovered that healthy breast tissue has more of a specific bacterial species called Methylobacterium. But urine samples from women with breast cancer had higher levels of bacteria like Staphylococcus and Actinomyces.
Understanding these differences opens the door to the possibility of testing for bacterial imbalances in breast tissue to detect breast cancer even earlier.
But if we know that bacteria play a role in breast cancer, why wait for a tumor to develop before doing something about it?
There are plenty of ways to support good bacteria RIGHT NOW.
This includes eating good-bug-supporting foods like onions, garlic, Jerusalem artichokes, raw asparagus, and dandelion greens. Plus, more probiotic-rich, fermented foods, including sauerkraut, kimchi, kombucha, fermented fish and meat, and fermented dairy (yogurt and kefir).
Of course, one of the easiest ways to improve bacteria in your body is by taking a high-quality probiotic supplement. You can find them in the refrigerated section of any local health food store.
Also, be sure your diet includes plenty of fiber since it contains prebiotics that feed your gut bacteria.
P.S. In other breast cancer news, researchers have uncovered what triggers breast cancer cells to become aggressive and grow and spread. Click here for all the details (including the simple fix that could SLASH your risk).
