Breast cancer? Anyone would want to avoid it. Some recent research indicates there are some foods that can prevent and reduce the risk of breast cancer.

The following are some foods that can reduce breast cancer

1. Wheat
We can take the form of wheat cereal with a glass of milk every morning. Each half-cup of wheat equivalent to 10 grams of fiber needs to be useful to reduce levels of estrogen in the body. Many argued that high levels of estrogen in the body can stimulate the growth of breast cancer cells.

2. Salmon and tuna
Based on a study in the United States, found that women who lived around the river and always eat tuna and salmon each day, has a very small risk for breast cancer. It was allegedly because of the content of omega-3 found in salmon and tuna.

3. Carrot and spinach
Women who never ate carrots and spinach was a risk of breast cancer two times higher than women who frequently eat both kinds of vegetables.

4. Yoghurt
A study using yogurt as a medium in a test trial, stated that yoghurt can slow the growth of breast cancer cells.

5. Soy milk
Substances contained in the pure soy milk appears to reduce the risk of breast cancer by 28% compared with the content of the substance contained in soybean processing.

6. Orange juice
Orange juice can slow the suspected breast cancer cell growth by 50%. However, the statement still needs further research to date.

Overcoming the red eye irritation with 'betel leaf'

Tips to overcome the red eye is the result of my own experience when at home, so if you dare try to please try it, but I am not responsible if something happens with your eyes, because the drug deal was outside the red-eye scientific testing.

ok, we started it.

when my eyes red my parents told me to pick some betel leaves on the porch beside the house. Then told me to wash it and then soaking it in hot water. All I do myself.

water that has been soaked with a few pieces of betel leaf is then I used to wash my eyes. The way that time the mother's advice is to dip my eyes to a bowl or container of water with the betel leaf. Of course, after the water is no longer really hot. Lukewarm. or cold is not a problem as well.

You know what happened? A few minutes later my red eyes began to decrease swelling. Several times I was told by the mother to repeat what I did before the red eye irritation to dip into the betel leaves water immersion. And within one day after I did the traditional treatment, is amazing I have not eyes swollen and red again.

Summary overcome red eye irritation:

Picking some betel leaves
Soak the betel leaf in hot water
Wait until the marinade rather cold or cold
Dip your eyes to the immersion
Repeat until a couple of times.

Eye is apart that very important in people life, so must to keep eye healthy rightly. At this moment i want to share any tips may be useful to us in keeping eye healthy.

I write 8 ways to keep eyes healthy as the follow

1. Check your eyes every 12 months.

Vision problems that are not treated will grow more severe, and wearing contact lenses or glasses are no longer suitable for you can cause vision problems and headaches.

2. In summer, wear glasses.

UV rays can create serious damage to eyes. Good sunglasses can prevent this. When buying sunglasses, make sure that can reflect at least 98% UV radiation.

3. Eat good nutrition for you and your eyes.

Recent studies show that vitamins and antioxidants can prevent the group, or at least slow the growth of macular degeneration and cataracts. Good nutrition for the body is also good for the eyes.

4. If you're reading or working on the computer, make sure the light is right.

Working with minimal light can cause eyestrain, but light is too bright, too bad. The light works best when using a computer is of a soft light table lamp from the side. Reduce levels of light (brightness) monitor. The color is so not too sharp, but the eye will be more comfortable.

5. Rest your eyes.

Almost all people feel their eyes are not so comfortable after sitting all day in front of a computer screen. This is due to eye blinks 25% less than normal, causing dry eyes. One thing you can do is close your eyes and count to 5 before opening it again. Another thing is to turn from the screen and focus on a distant object, as often as possible.

6. Search for contact lens with good quality.

Not all contact lenses the same. There are safe for your eyes, and there is also a risk of eye damage. To see the reference about contact lenses at: ( Know what's on offer modern contact lens industry will help to make wise choices, not simply follow what the doctor said.

7. If lenses contact treat properly.

Contact lenses are not so much trouble, but you also can not ignore it clean. Every time you use or release your contact lenses, rinse. You also have to replace the fluid, when you put in place when you sleep at night.

8. Wear contact lenses according to the recommended schedule.

There are people who save with berbiat wear contact lenses longer than intended. This is not a good thing. Although-quality lenses will not be reduced, proteins can stack your vision blurred. Another thing to consider is, the longer you wear your contact lenses, the higher your risk of eye infection.
