Suggested Nutritional Measures to Keep Breast Cancer at Bay

Written by Dr Sandra Miranda, ND
If there was any way to prevent or at least minimize your chances of getting breast cancer, you would of course do all you could to do so. There are many foods that are excellent sources of nutrition generally, but that also have excellent properties for helping to prevent cancer.
Studies are beginning to show that certain foods contain properties that can keep cancer at bay. If there were even a slight chance of preventing cancer by taking in more of these foods, of course, you would eat more of them.
Broccoli
Broccoli seems to be on the top of the list for fighting breast cancer. Similar foods such as kale and bok choy are among the vegetables that also top the list of foods to eat.
Beans and Legumes
Beans are a great source of protein and fibre, and more and more studies are showing that eating more of them can help reduce the risk of breast cancer. 
The Berry Family
Blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries are among the favourite breast cancer-fighting foods. These yummy fruits added to yogurts or cereal, hot or cold, make a tasty addition to your diet with the added bonus of helping to ward off cancer cells.
Red and Orange Fruits and Veggies 
Fruits and veggies high in carotenoids have many health benefits, including reducing risk of breast cancer. Peppers, tomatoes, and cantaloupes are all delicious in their own rights and when added to recipes add flavour and colour as well.
Fatty Types of Fish
Fish that is high in omega 3 is an excellent source of protein. Trout, fresh tuna, and salmon are all wonderful additions to your diet. Studies are showing that eating fish that is high in omega 3 (oily types of fish) lowers the chance of developing breast cancer.
