Best Breast Cancer Weapons

If you are a woman, than chances are you either know someone who has had breast cancer or has had breast cancer yourself. The newest information on nutritional studies to help cut the risk of getting breast cancer or having it return is as follows:
1) British researchers have recently found that a compound called Indole-3-Carbinol found in mustard collard greens or kale seems to open tumour cell receptors to chemotherapy drugs, making meds more effective. As a side note to this, you can take Indole-3-Carbinol in capsule form, but there are little studies to ascertain if the capsules have the same effect as eating the veggies.
2) Women who ate a diet rich in carotenoids (organge, red and yellow veggies and fruits) have a 43% lower risk of breast cancer recurrence as per a most recent study of 1,550 women.
3) One other recent study found that women who cut their fat intake by 10% cut their risk of a type of estrogen-dependent breast c cancer by 36%.
4) In yet another study researchers found that women who maintained a healthy weight before, during and after breast cancer, were 52% less likely to die from the disease within 9 years after first being diagnosed. Those who avoided gaining belly fat cut their risk of death by 48%.

Common Breast Cancer Myths

The first myth pertaining to this disease is that it only affects women.

Second myth that is associated with this disease is that if one has found a lump during an examination, it is cancer.

Third is that it is solely hereditary

The next myth associated with breast cancer is downright ridiculous. Would you believe, that in this day and age, some individuals still think that breast cancer is contagious?

Conversely, some individuals foolishly believe that breast size determines whether or not one gets cancer.

Finally, another myth that is associated with this disease is that it only affects older people. This is not so. Although the chance of getting breast cancer increases with age, women as young as 18 have been diagnosed with the disease.
