Does Breast Cancer Begin with Unhealthy Eating Practices?

You cannot change the fact that being a woman is the main risk for breast cancer. While men also get the disease, it is about 100 times more common in women than in men.

Many studies have looked for a link between what women eat and breast cancer risk. Some studies seemed to show that diet may play a role, while others claim it’s the everyday use of radiation from using microwave. But so far, there are no clear answers. Studies have looked at the amount of fat in the diet, intake of fruits and vegetables, and intake of meat.

This is not to say that there is no point in eating a healthy diet. A diet low in fat, low in red meat and processed meat, and high in fruits and vegetables is still the positive way to beat cancer. On the other hand, many studies of women in the United States have not found breast cancer risk to be linked to how much fat they ate. Researchers are still not sure how to explain this difference.

What you eat—and don’t eat—has a powerful effect on your health, including your risk of cancer. Without knowing it, you may be eating many foods that fuel cancer, while neglecting the powerful foods and nutrients that can protect you. If you change your diet and behaviors, you can minimize your risk of disease and possibly even stop cancer in its tracks.

Getting those years of all work is more than inspiring to sit and express everything worth reading for all ages. But you'll see me more often write about health, cooking and the environment. Drop me a line if you have anything you'd like to talk. I'd be more than happy to hear from you. Carolyn
