Foods for Reducing Breast Cancer Risk

You are what you eat when it comes to breast cancer risks, and this can be very true. There are certain foods you can eat to help you in the battle with cancer. For instance, fish, which is high in omega-3 fatty acids can help. Now, you should try for two to three servings each week. Another source of protection is fruit. In fact, if fruits are bright and colorful, they’re probably better for you. Now, strawberries and raspberries are helpful and don’t forget your vegetables, especially cruciferous vegetables. Broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage are all cancer fighters. It’s best to eat them slightly steamed and you should shoot for five servings a week. Again, this is very important information because what we’re starting to realize is, not only can healthy food help you with your heart, but it’s been shown to help fight in breast cancer, prostate cancer and a wide variety of problems.
