Your Diet Could Cut Your Risk of Breast Cancer

A new study suggests that eating lots of vegetables and seafood uncontaminated by mercury may reduce risk of breast cancer in women.

Researchers analyzed dietary data from 357 women with breast cancer and an equal number of age-matched controls. The women who ate highest amounts of vegetables and seafood were 86 percent less likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer.

Food Consumer reports:

“Breast cancer is diagnosed in more than 175,000 women and kills about 50,000 each year in the United States, according to the National Cancer Institute. The disease is expected in one in seven women in their lifetime.”
