Here at TTAC, we’ve talked at great length about nutrition. From antiangiogenics, to entomophagy, to nutrients that destroy cancer stem cells. We’ve worked hard to get the truth out there, so I was excited to see a segment on a local Fox News affiliate station focused on how diet can help prevent breast cancer. A reporter interviewed Dr. Hajira Yasmin of Marshfield Clinic to discuss the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
To maintain a healthy weight would reduce your risk significantly for having breast cancer.
The segment discusses how diet and exercise are factors that you can control, unlike gender, age, or genetics. Registered Dietician Kristene Schulte talked about the importance of not only what you eat, but how you eat. The report also shared data about alcohol, and how consumption leads to an increased risk of cancer. Professionals recommend moderation if you choose to drink: 1 drink per day for women, and a maximum of 2 a day for men.
Dr. Yasmin encourages people of any age to consider lifestyle changes, reminding us that it’s never too late to take control of your health. Remember to stick to organic, non-gmo foods, and talk to a professional about an exercise regimen that works for you.
