Breast Cancer Awareness Month


What more can we stress the importance of than foods than Prevent this horrible disease?  Many article have been written with recommendations on how to prevent and combat the possible onset of breast cancer. Studies have shown that woman who eat six or more bean based meals a week have a 34% lower rish of breast cancer than those who eat them once a month or less.

You can also enrich your diet by eating a liberal amount of berries. The are laced with compounds that block stem cells associated with breast cancer formations.  Fresh blueberries are the best bet in their studies, all you need is 1/2 cup a day for protection.

Green leafy vegetables are also among the studies of protection of breast cancer and those that are the highest in contributions are spinach, kale, broccoli, arugula and escarole.. they had a 40% reduced recurrence risk after five years.  In a recent study, more than 700 woman found that those who ate the most lycopene (cooked tomato products) had a 35% lower breast cancer risk than women who didn't eat tomatoes.
