Let’s Prevent Breast Cancer With Healthy Food
***For pink month let’s focus on INCREASING our intake of CANCER-FIGHTING FOODS instead of Pink-washed food!***
Do you know that lifestyle changes can play a huge role in breast cancer prevention? AND that 38%* of breast cancers could be prevented with lifestyle changes.
👉Increasing the intake of healthy food, such as fruits and vegetables.
👉Increasing the intake of prebiotic foods such as sprouted grains and homemade fermented vegetables.
👉Avoiding processed grain: wheat, soy, and corn products are highly subsidized by the US government, making them very cheap and widely available for the production of highly processed and refined products.*
👉Avoiding processed meat, poultry, and farmed fish, refined sugar, and replace them with a natural source such as honey, maple syrup, date syrup, and coconut sugar.
👉Check ingredient labels to be sure you’re not consuming high amounts of added sugar/sweeteners
👉Try working alternative grains like quinoa or buckwheat into some meals, rather than eating lots of bread, instant rice, pasta, cereal, etc.**
👉Avoiding refined oils and replacing them with coconut oil or olive oil
👉Get Enough Sunshine and Vitamin D.
👉Regular exercise and maintaining a healthy weight.
