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%.
