FOOds 4 BOoBs :)

Hey BizzyBodies!

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I'd thought I'd do some research to find out what are some foods that are good for preventing cancer in mammary glands. And GUYS pay attention! You are at risk for breast cancer as well.


Foods 4 Ur Boobs:

1. FRUITS & VEGGIES: (ex. dark-green leafy foods, tomatoes, citrus, cherries, and berries) are a rich source of phytochemicals believed to reduce cancer.


2. COLD WATER FISH: (ex. tuna, salmon, sardines, and crab) contain omega-3 fats to prevent breast cancer.


3. MONOUNSATURATED OILS: (ex. canola oil, avocado, nuts, seeds) provide multi- anti-cancer ingredients including selenium and squalene.


4. FIBER: (ex. whole grains & beans) also provide lignan which is another source of protection from breast cancer.


5. SOY: Please note organic whole food products with this ingredient (ex. tofu, soy milk, miso) is more likely to reduce than genetically-modified soy products.


SOME HABITS TO AVOID:

1. DRINKING ALCOHOL: A study has proven consuming this can increase the chance of breast cancer by 25 %.


2. EATING REFINED GRAINS: All the "white" stuff such as, white sugar, flour, rice, potato, and bread can increase your risk.


3. NO SLEEP: Studies have proven that a lack of snooze and mental stability can lead to breast cancer.


4. COUCH SITTING: This goes for pretty much anything. If you do not exercise, most of the bad stuff you consume will stay there. You always want to find healthy ways (don't overdo it now) to allow your body to keep functioning properly.


5. CONSUMING UNNECESSARY ESTROGEN: Unless you absolutely need it ladies to regulate your Aunt Flo, help with skin issues, or another specified medical reason, avoid taking the pill. The extra hormones in your body also play a major role in the development of breast cancer.


Hope this helps! Got any more tips?

DROP A BUZZ!

Oh yeh, make sure you take those supplements (Vitamin C, fish oil, etc) as well!

  1. Cool - all of these things sound pretty basic.

    Is there a such thing as a "hot-water" fish? Would that be considered crab or lobster? - Serious inquiry

    Actually dearest Tiffypoo there isn't such a thing as 'hot water' fish per say but there is a such thing as 'tropical fish'.

    Cold water fish are fish that prefer cooler water temperatures...they live longer. Crab is an example.

    Don't be fooled by lobster. Though it is a food for luxury, like other 'scavengers', they eat their own skin and result to cannibalism if they need to...

    Not an expert but I'm just sayin...lol
