October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Among the articles that I found and reported, you will find easy to make foods and recipes and I’ll also be reading this Kindle book for free! I hope it's still FREE by the time you get there to check on it.  This is link:  http://www.amazon.com/Fight-Now-Proactively-Against-ebook/dp/B00433U5EG



Dr. Tabor’s FIGHT NOW book provides information on lifestyle choices that might improve breast health and overall health. The purpose of Dr. Tabor’s medical research is to empower you to become proactive against breast cancer now with specific food and lifestyle choices. We can make specific food and lifestyle choices to lower the risk of getting breast cancer, risk of recurrence, and risk of dying from breast cancer. The only alternative is to be reactive after you get breast cancer or have a recurrence of breast cancer. 

The choice is clear.  Whether you are currently fighting breast cancer; are a survivor; or, simply trying to lower your risk, Dr. Tabor’s FIGHT NOW book will give you concise, critical information that you can start using today. You don’t have to read hundreds of pages, or have a medical degree to reduce your cancer risk. Spend just a few hours reading this book and you will be empowered to Fight Now.




One of the foods TO EAT are:


Yogurt

Recent studies have shown that yogurt increases levels of anti-cancer compounds in animals. Look for yogurts with live, active cultures in order to reap the cancer-fighting benefits. Remember to buy brands labeled "contains live cultures" rather than "made with live cultures."



Plus, if you think yogurt is just for breakfast, think again. This creamy staple is the base for everything from delicious Mediterranean-inspired dips to indulgent (and surprisingly healthy) desserts.

As researchers continue to wage war against cancer, many have begun to focus on what could be the most promising ammunition to date: diet.

"The easiest, least-expensive way to reduce your risk for cancer is just by eating a healthy diet," says Rachael Stolzenberg-Solomon, PhD, MPH, RD, a researcher at the National Cancer Institute.

“When it comes to a diet rich in cancer-fighting substances, most experts agree that it should consist of a predominantly plant-based diet. "If you have two-thirds of plant food on your plate, that seems to be enough to avoid excessive amounts of food high in saturated fat," says Karen Collins, RD, nutritional advisor for the American Institute for Cancer Research."


That seemingly simple advice could mean a drastic change in diet for many people.


"People who are thinking that this is like a diet, and are trying to choke this stuff down, it's never going to last," Collins tells WebMD. "You're looking at creating something for a lifetime. If it takes you awhile, but each month or so you enjoy [one more vegetable], then that's great," Collins.


You may want to start with some of the following food substances, all of which show promise as cancer-fighting agents. http://www.webmd.com/cancer/features/top-cancer-fighting-foods


If you’re like me, you are always looking for the best foods to fight illness, weight gain and other maladies.  I’m also looking for the most nutritious, affordable, and those that create a healthy lifestyle of food choices.

Thank you so much for sharing. I've lost a close person in my life due to breast cancer. I love her dearly and miss her so much.
