10/17: Reducing Your Risk of Breast Cancer

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Eau Claire (CHIPPEWA VALLEY WELLNESS)- October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we have been  reporting on how to help those impacted. But now, how can we reduce our risk of breast cancer with simple nutrition.

Second only to skin cancer as the most common cancer. 1 in 8 women in the US will develop invasive breast cancer in their lifetime. Almost 30% of all cancers in women are breast in the US, more women die than any other cancer. Close to 40,000 women die each year. 70-80% of all breast cancers occur in women with no prior family history.

How can you evaluate your risk of breast cancer. Oviously gender, over 55 have a greater incidence, genetics/family, synthetic hormone use, stress, diet–excess estrogen. Estrogen is the key here. We have three kinds of estrogen. Estrone is a bad cancer promoting cancer. We are missing the boat by waiting to do a mammogram until we have a macroscopic lesion formed. This could all be evaluated by a simple urine test which tell how much bad estrogen we have in our body.

We are finding out now that diet can have a great influence on your breast cancer risk. Studies have show that cruciferous/brassica vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, kale) contain phytochemicals that convert this bad estrone to a harmless byproduct that the body can get rid of. Better yet-we now have this phytochemical in pill form so if you don’t want to eat take a pill. Garlic also was chosen by Harvard researchers a top food for all cancer prevention. God gave us these foods we just need to eat them, our cure is right here.
