It’s all about food… and it happens to be one of my favourite subjects.
Let’s face it, there is no other activity that we do more frequently in our life than eating. I don’t think that anyone has any doubts that we become what we eat.
According to the World Health Organization and many other sources, 70% of all diseases are directly related to nutrition and diet. If you want to prevent disease, and in particular breast cancer, I suggest the following simple way:
Eating low saturated fat with high fiber has been shown to be beneficial for breast health.
As you know, I’m a big proponent of the Anti-Estrogenic diet, which simply means that you avoid estrogen-promoting foods.
How to do this? Start eating foods lower on the food chain, foods like fruits, vegetables, legumes, roots, nuts, seeds, and eggs. Choose wild fish or fresh dairy, both are permissible. (you can learn more about this in my book Breast Cancer is a Preventable Disease, Chapter 2 – Nutrition)
Now, what’s not permissible? Stay away from processed grains. In fact, stay away from processed foods, period. Processed grains, sugar, overfed farm animals, refined, processed or chemically-loaded foods, these are foods that you need to stay away from. Try to eat organic whenever possible. Further, home cooking is much preferred to eating out for obvious reasons. The energy that goes into food preparation is very important and it is just impossible to attain that with commercially prepared foods.
Unfortunately, lately because of conflicting information our relationship with food has changed, where food has become the enemy. It is the exact opposite; food is the most powerful medicine you have at your disposal. Keep this in mind as you’re making your food choices.
Lastly, consider this: the foods that that you eat are important but what’s even more important are the thoughts that you have while eating! Stay tuned for more on this tomorrow!
Meanwhile, take charge of your health today, be proactive and help others to Prevent Breast Cancer NOW!
