These 10 Foods Have All Been Associated With Reduced Breast Cancer Risk


Please Share This Page:

1) Carrots
Carrots are a rich source of beta-carotene (also found in several other vegetables and fruits). Beta-carotene was found by researchers to cause breast cancer cell death by arresting the cancer cells’ reproductive cycle (in vitro). The study concluded that carotenoids are potential agents for biological interference with cancer [2] Include a side dish of carrots, either raw, steamed or stir-fried in a little butter, to every meal.



2) Broccoli
Broccoli, a cruciferous vegetable, has been associated by studies with reduced risk of breast cancer in pre-menopausal women for several years. [3] A 2013 meta-analysis of 13 human studies indicated that high cruciferous vegetable intake was significantly associated with reduced breast cancer risk. [4] Steaming broccoli – a little on the light side – is a better way than boiling to preserve its cancer-fighting substances.
