Foods that aid in Breast Cancer Prevention

Standard

The time has come it is October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast Cancer awareness and prevention means a lot to me.  My mother passed away from the disease a couple years ago. Breast Cancer affects a great number of people. There are several things you can do to reduce your risk of Breast Cancer. One thing in particular is paying attention to your diet. What you eat is very important. Below I have listed a variety of food that aid in prevention.

Fish:

Fish is  a smart lean protein source and a great addition to a breast cancer prevention plan. Anti-cancer nutrition recommendations are that you decrease your intake of red meat and processed meats, such as bacon and packaged deli meats. Try salmon, mackerel, sea bass, and tuna instead.

Berries:

Berries are packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that can aid in breast cancer prevention, so make them part of your breast cancer diet. This includes blackberries, blue berries,  raspberries and strawberries. 

Green Tea:

Green tea contains extracts that  show some benefit in breast cancer prevention. Research suggests that green tea is greatly effective at protecting your cells against environmental exposures that might increase the risk for cancer.
