Anti-Breast Cancer Food

 

Breast Cancer is a very debilitating disease affecting women in different age groups and different walks of life. Going through this traumatic disease not only affects the victim but also those around her. If you are diagnosed or just conscious enough about the risks, it is also a great idea to know the different possible diets that can help in the prevention as well as rehabilitation of the person.

Anti-Breast Cancer Food“Certain foods may help cut your risk of a deadly form of breast cancer by as much as 50%. A diet rich in carotenoids—nutrients found in red-orange fruits and vegetables such as carrots, cantaloupe, and tomatoes—is associated with a lower risk of breast cancer, especially an aggressive form affecting about 58,000 women every year, says a new study from Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School.

“Women with the highest blood levels of carotenoids had a 15 to 20% lower risk of developing all types of breast cancer and a 40 to 50% lower risk of developing estrogen-receptor negative [ER-] breast cancer,” says Heather Eliassen, ScD, lead study author. [ER-] breast cancer tumors are fast growing and don’t respond to the hormone therapy that is so successful in estrogen-receptor positive tumors.”

The Rainbow Diet and How It Can Help You Beat Cancer

Rainbow Diet “The Rainbow diet is a book about how to beat cancer, although it works just as well as a general health book I´m sure.
