Instead of thinking on breast cancer, more wisely chose to concentrate on keeping our breasts healthy through healthy lifestyle and food choices.
The following tips may help you, because the actions and foods they suggest, contrary to many alternative views of cancer prevention. They are supported by a strong research, – from the lab, with animals, and in the long-term human studies. Thus, each of these tips has a strong scientific basis, unlike the assertions made by their intention to sell their products to you and ask for opinions.
Start one of these suggestions will definitely lower the risk of breast cancer. Use them all the better.
- Be more active
A healthy lifestyle by finding people who exercise or work on a regular basis is one of the best ways to reduce the risk of breast cancer.
For breast health I walk every day for 30-45 minutes, take a weekly yoga class, and doing tai chi twice a week.
- Eat more unrefined seed foods
All seeds provide phytoestrogens. Women who eat the most phytoestrogenic four times more likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer than those who ate the least. Grains such as wheat, rice, maize, millet, quinoa is a food and raw seeds. Legumes such as lentils, black beans, peas, and beans are seed on its uncooked foods. Including beans, walnuts, almonds, and pecans. And edible seeds such as sesame, sunflower, and pumpkin.
Fruits and vegetables are eaten directly with their seeds – such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, kiwi fruit, summer squash, tomatoes, and cucumbers – count the grains as refined foods. Even seeds used as spice flavor, such as cumin, coriander, caraway, anise, and dill seeds.
For breast health, I have replaced all refined carbohydrates – including white rice and white / unbleached flour products such as pasta, bread, cookies, crackers, pretzels, donuts, and cakes – with whole-grain products.
- Reduce the meal with vegetable oil; improve animal fat, especially from dairy products
If you are dubious about eating more animal fat and dairy products to reduce the risk of breast cancer, consider. 1gram(about one tea spoon) of vegetable oil consumed per day, the risk of breast cancer increased by 70%. Conversely, forevery10grams of fat from meat and dairy products in the daily diet, the risk of breast cancer decreased by55%. For breast health I use yogurt, cheese, milk, butter, and olive oil daily, and eat meat.
- Eat less tofu and soy beverage; eats more miso and tamari.
The active ingredient in soy – isoflavone – when given to breast cancer cells in petri dishes causes them to grow rapidly. (Extracts of dong quai and licorice have a similar effect.)
Miso and tamari – fermented soy foods – are the exceptions. Both are very prevention of cancer, no matter when you start eating them. Animal studies have found both miso and tamari highly effective in preventing cancer, and the more you eat, the more you reduce the risk of cancer.
- Eat foods rich in antioxidants; but avoid supplements of vitamins C and E
A diet that contains plenty of food rich in antioxidants definitely lowers breast cancer risk. But supplements seem to do the opposite. One new “chemotherapy” links a deadly form of zinc for ascorbic acid molecule; when the cancer consuming ascorbic acid, zinc is set free to kill cancer cells.
For breast health I eat 5-7 servings of food a red / orange, dark green and sunny every day.
These five tips are easy, much will increase your chances of living to be a wise old woman with healthy breast.
