You have a 1-in-8 chance of developing breast cancer in your LIFE.
Genetic makeup, diet, lack of exercise, and your "Life-Style" have a lot to do with it.
Women know the numbers all too well. You read articles all the time and they talk about new drugs that are suppose to cut the risks. Some make sense and could help; others seem far-fetched or even barbaric.
Mictchell Gaynor, M.D. director of medical oncology and integrative medicine at Strang Cancer Prevention Center in Manhattan along with other colleagues feel that the proper diet, exercise, & nutrition are the key. As it is the only thing you have direct control of.
NOT TO LATE TO EAT RIGHT
PILE ON THE FIBER
80 % of vegetable, fruit beans & grains. 20 % Fat
Tip your diet towards fruits and vegetables, low in fat high in fiber.
Robert Arnot MD author of the Breast Cancer Prevention Diet Says that fiber interrupts the body's metabolism of estrogen and decreases the blood levels estrogen. High levels of estrogen in the bloodstream correspond to a higher risk of breast cancer. High fiber diets can decrease breast cancer risk by up to 54 percent.
Eat seaweeds such as kelp, and nori often, blue green algae such as spirulina.
Jane Teas PH.D of Harvard School of Public Health found that rats fed kelp had less breast cancer than rats that were not fed kelp.
Kelp, chlorella, and spirulina contain chlorophyll, which studies have shown to have anti-carcinogenic effects, as well as Vitamin C and carotenoids, which fight free radicals.
Keep Your FAT INTAKE at 20 %
A diet high in fat (especially animal fat) is known to increase the risk of breast cancer.
Studies show that Japanese women who move from Japan were Fat intake is 20 % to the United States where Fat intake is 40 % or more of total Calories. Are more at risk for breast cancer.
According to Charles Simone, MD author of Breast Health a high-fat diet produces chemicals in the intestine that bacteria convert to carcinogenic estrogen's. This estrogen's can them are stored in the fatty tissue of the breast, making cells in this area more susceptible to cancer growth.
WHAT TO DO
Consume plenty of cruciferous vegetables broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, turnips, bok choy, kale, and cauliflower. The best way is to Steam them or eat them raw. It preserves their cancer fighting agents.
Crucuferous vegetables contain sulfurous compounds called indoles, which eliminate estrogen from the body and prevent it from triggering the growth of breast cancer. Only cruciferous vegetables are known to convert estrogen in the body from cancer promoting forms to forms that actually protects against breast cancer. According to Dr.Gaynor's Cancer Prevention Program they protect against breast cancer. One particular indole, -3-carbinol (13C), inhibits the development of potentially cancerous cells in the breast.
FISH FOR FATTY ACIDS
Eat at least three servings a week of cold water fish Tuna, Salmon, Halibut, Mackerel, Haddock, Cod, and Sardines. Don't like fish?
Use Vegetarian supplements or fish oil capsules (2 to 10 g. a day.
Omega-3 oils inhibit the effects of the compounds known as prostaglandin's, which have been associated with the inflammation that suppresses the immune system's ability to identify tumors.
North American Eskimo women, who eat a diet extremely rich in omega-3 oils, have no breast cancer at all.
In a study from Finland, women with breast cancer were found to have lower levels of EPA and DHA, two omega-3 fatty acids, in their breast tissues than women with benign fibrocystic breast disease.
Learn the Secret.
All Soy products are not the same and not equally beneficial. Highly refined soy products, such as soymilk, soy burgers, and fake meats, contain much less genistein than traditional Asian soy products and some may contain artificial preservatives. Soy oils, and soy sauces are not good sources either. Soy oils contain unhealthy fats, and soy sauce is high in sodium.
Soybeans and other soy products contain genistein, a natural plant estrogen that binds to receptors in the breast, making it impossible for potentially cancer causing forms of estrogen to connect with breast cells.
Garlic, Onions, Shallots, and Leek.
According to the National Cancer Institute, garlic is one of the best foods for protection against cancer. It contains the mineral Selenium, which stimulates white blood cell production and induces apoptosis (cancer cell death.)
CHOOSE THE RIGHT OILS.
Cook with extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Watch your trans. fats. Margarine, Saturated fats in red meats.
Drink teas Green tea instead of coffee and caffeine drinks
Dairy products and meats that have been certified organic are free of hormones like bovine growth hormone, a chemical fed to cows that have been shown to promote the growth of breast cancer cells.
