Breast Cancer


Breast cancer is a malignant tumor that originates in the breast tissue. Itís the most common type of cancer in women (other than skin cancer) and is sometimes found in both breasts. The cells in your body normally reproduce on a need basis, but sometimes they grow out of control. This abnormal growth creates a tissue mass or tumor that may be either benign or malignant.

The cause of breast cancer, despite years of research, is unknown. Your age, personal health history and diet are all considered as risk factors.

Here are some things you can do to help prevent breast cancer:
  • Clean up your lifestyle

  • Stop smoking

  • Use only deodorants (not anti-perspirants)

  • Decrease stress

  • Exercise regularly

  • Drink plenty of clean water

  • For younger women, studies have shown that breast feeding your children greatly decreases your risk

  • Avoid processed foods, sugars, alcohol, caffeine products, etc.

  • Change your diet to a whole food program. Eat organic whole grains, free-ranging meats and lots of colorful fruits and vegetables high in carotenoids, flavonoids and cruciferous compounds.

  • Keep your fat consumption below 30% of your diet. For more information see A Chat About Fat.
Even when you do the best you can, you canít always get everything you need from the foods you eat. See Fact or Fiction: You can get everything you need from the food you eat.

Natural Vitamin E with mixed tocopherols and mixed tocotrienols is a powerful antioxidant and is very beneficial for healthy breast tissue.

Look for Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acid supplements from human food sources.

Choose antioxidant supplements that contain full spectrum carotenoids, flavonoids, cruciferous and phytosterols. Only use a multiple that comes from human food sources.
