Special Food for Breast Cancer Patients

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.
