4 key foods that help prevent breast cancer

The results of recent medical research shows that 4 key foods if eaten on a regular basis can definitively reduce one’s breast cancer risk by as much as 40%. Aim to add these following foods to your diet daily:

1) Apples. Eating one or more apples each day can lower your chances of getting breast tumors by at least 29%. Make sure to eat the skin of the apple because that is where the most beneficial nutrients are.

2) Brussels Sprouts. Eat a half cup of brussels sprouts daily to cut your cancer risk by 40% because they are rich in indoles, which is a compound that cuts down on uncontrolled cell growth. Mix it with broccoli and cauliflower for even more cancer fighting nutrients.

3) Carrots. This tasty vegetable is rich in beta-carotene which cuts excess estrogen in the blood stream and prevents that excess estrogen from damaging cells and from causing tumor growth. Aim to consume 1 and a half servings of beta-carotene rich food daily.

4) Eggs. Eating just 2 eggs per day can reduce your breast cancer risk by 36% because eggs are rich in choline, a nutrient that boosts the health of cells in the body.
