Wellness with Natalie – Three foods to help prevent breast cancer
No doubt about it – cancer is complex and there is no one reason or one cure, but there are factors that can mitigate and factors that can contribute.
Last week, we spoke about some possible causes, and things you could eliminate from life to reduce your chances of developing breast cancer.
So today, let’s dive right in and discuss the changes you can make to your diet to further reduce your risk of developing breast cancer:
the Rainbow - Colourful fruits and vegetables are rich in beneficial phytonutrients such as flavonoids and carotenoids, which studies have shown to be good for preventing breast cancer. So eat up your dark, green, leafy vegetables; bell peppers; carrots; broccoli; kale; tomatoes; citrus fruits; onions.
Eat fiber rich foods - Fiber keeps the waste pipes clear and this helps to eliminate toxins from your system. Here we are looking at legumes and beans or even a fiber supplement such as the one we love. You can use our referral code (NATALIEMURRAY) to get a discount.
Get in the good fats - Omega 3 reduces inflammation and has been linked to a reduced risk of breast cancer. Get from food sources such as flaxseed, chia seeds, and walnuts or cold-water fatty fish, such as salmon, mackerel, tuna, herring, and sardines. If you need to supplement, you have to ensure it’s a clean supplement - so we like this one: xEO Mega.
