Foods that Fight Breast Cancer
Studies continue to confirm the link between nutrition and a reduction in breast cancer risk.

Whole Grains like oatmeal, quinoa and brown rice
Researchers have found that both soluble and insoluble fiber reduce the risk of breast cancer, especially for women consuming 35 grams a day. Insoluble fiber sticks to free estrogens in the gut, and sweeps them out. Fiber also reduces inflammation in the body which is a major contributor to cancer.

Cruciferous Vegetables- eat your broccolli!
Cruciferous vegetables such as arugula, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, and kale are rich in sulforaphane – one of the primary phytochemicals that help prevent cancer. Recent studies from the Linus Pauling Institute, suggest that sulforaphane can selectively target and kill cancer cells while leaving normal cells healthy and unaffected. They also contain indole carbinol which changes the estrogens in your body from the type that promotes breast cancer to the type that protects against cancer.

Fish high in Omega-3 fatty acids
Omega-3s are known for their anti-inflammatory properties and association with heart health, but these healthy fats also fend off cancer. Omega-3s lower inflammation, shut down enzymes that promote cancer and support immune health. Other sources of Omega-3s are walnuts, flaxseeds and pumpkin seeds.

Indian Spices
A collection of nearly 4,000 scientific studies showed that the active compound in turmeric, curcumin, is the food with the most powerful anti-inflammatory action and has the most potent cancer-fighting ability against cells from a wide variety of human cancers. Indians, the largest consumers of turmeric, are up to 20 times less likely to be diagnosed with by many types of cancers including prostate, colon, and breast.

Alliums- garlic, chives and onions
These flavor enhancing foods act as HDAC inhibitors which is an enzyme that is necessary for cancer growth.

Coconut Oil
This wonder oil contains lauric acid, which boosts immune health and inhibits cancer cell growth by fostering healthy gene expression.

Charity of the Month
The Breast Cancer Fund fights to eliminate the environmental causes of breast cancer. They believe that together we can stop this disease before it starts. For more information on prevention, visit www.breastcancerfund.org. We will be asking for $5 donation to this cause to hold your place at our Client Appreciation events this month.
