BEAT Breast Cancer with These Foods (Shocking!)
It’s no secret that your diet impacts your cancer risk.
But certain foods have more cancer-fighting power than others… just like certain foods can send your risk through the roof.
Fortunately for us, modern research has taken the guesswork out of what foods to eat to help beat breast cancer.
Here are the best—and worst—foods to include in your anti-breast cancer diet.
You know that vegetables are good for you, but it’s important to get a variety of them because different types of vegetables provide different cancer-fighting nutrients.
For example, green, leafy vegetables like kale, spinach, and arugula contain carotenoids like lutein, beta carotene, and zeaxanthin. Studies have shown time and again that having higher blood levels of carotenoids are associated with a lower risk of breast cancer.
One study of 32,000 women found that those with the highest blood levels of total carotenoids had up to a 28 percent reduced risk of developing breast cancer, as well as a reduced risk of recurrence and death in women who had already had breast cancer.
It’s easy to overlook the health benefits of allium vegetables like garlic, onions, and leeks because we typically use them to enhance the flavor of dish. But their anti-cancer potential is worth taking a second look at.
They contain powerful anti-cancer nutrients like flavonoids and organosulfur compounds, and numerous studies have shown that higher intake of allium vegetables can reduce the risk of breast cancer.
While I’m on the vegetable topic, we can’t forget cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower. This type of vegetable contains glucosinolate compounds, which your body converts to molecules called isothiocyanates.
One study showed that women with a higher intake of cruciferous vegetables had a lower risk of breast cancer.
Certain types of fruit have also been shown to be protective.
One study of over 75,000 women found that women with higher intakes of berries had a lower risk of estrogen receptor negative breast cancer.
Citrus fruits contain numerous breast-cancer-fighting compounds, like vitamin C, folate, carotenoids, and flavonoids.
A review of six studies and about 8,000 people linked higher intake of citrus fruits with a 10 percent reduction in breast cancer risk.
But by far, the fruit with the best breast cancer protection is peaches. One study showed that women who ate two servings of peaches per week had up to a 41 percent reduction in developing ER-breast cancer.
Numerous herbs and spices have shown a protective effect, including parsley, ginger, turmeric, oregano, and thyme.
And foods like fatty fish and beans offer protection as well.
But as always, what you don’t do is just as important for your health as what you do (do).
Just be sure to skip the fast foods, fried foods, processed meats, and sugar. Studies have tied all of these foods to an increased breast cancer risk.
P.S. Could you actually be able to cure breast cancer… with venom? I know it sounds crazy, but you’ll want to go here and see the details for yourself.
