and the Prevention of Breast Cancer
According to the
American Cancer Society, in the United States alone, a woman is diagnosed
with breast cancer every three minutes. So far, in 2006 alone, there
have been over 212,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer diagnosed,
as well as over 61,000 cases of non-invasive breast cancer. Over 40,000
women will die from breast cancer in 2006 alone.
These are astounding
numbers, and one must consider that breast cancer research is ongoing,
and has made impressive steps towards the survival rate among women
who have experienced breast cancer. But with these numbers, it is not
enough. Hence, the steps taken by many national and private associations
to make women aware of breast cancer, its causes, its treatment, and
have found is that antioxidants, which are produced naturally by the
body, aid in the prevention of breast cancer. Unfortunately, in today's
environment, the antioxidants that our bodies product isn't enough.
Coupled with the fact that as we age, our bodies produce less antioxidant,
scientists have looked into other ways that we can detoxify our bodies
for the prevention of breast cancer.
In Athens, Greece,
at the Athens Medical School, and the Harvard School of Public Health,
major studies have been conducted to determine the effect our diets
have on the risk of developing breast cancer. Women who ate a lot of
fruit cut their risk by 35 percent, and women who ate a lot of vegetables
cut their risk by 46 percent.
In Jefferson, Arkansas,
researchers at the National Center for Toxicological Research published
a study that also found that higher consumption of fruits and vegetables
helps to reduce the risk of breast cancer, and also those vegetables
that aid in detoxification help to reduce the risk even more.
Of course, these
studies just show that ingesting a higher amount of fruit and vegetables
and detoxifying the body reduces the risk. There are still other risk
factors that one must consider, but when it comes to preventing breast
cancer, any reduction of risk is worth the effort.
are natural antioxidants, and the FDA recommends two servings of green
vegetables daily. Unfortunately, most of us don't have the time or the
resources to get those two servings, but now, there is an alternative.
This is great news for anyone who wants to lower their risk for breast
cancer - as well as anyone who hates green vegetables - and many do.
can get your daily serving of green vegetables that will aid in detoxifying
the body in liquid form. Scientists have also found that our bodies
absorb liquids better than solids. This doesn't mean that you shouldn't
eat solid food - the body needs that as well. It means that when you
are trying to ingest your needed vitamins, minerals, and nutrients,
you are better off getting them in liquid form, as opposed to pill form.
