Women's Cancer Deaths Expected to Rise 60 Percent by 2030

A shocking report from CNN Health reveals that women’s cancer deaths worldwide are expected to increase by 60 percent by 2030, with most of the rise expected in low- and middle-income countries. The poor prognosis is being blamed for the women adopting riskier habits such as smoking and poor diets.

It’s no secret that a poor diet can contribute to cancer risk, and that eating healthy early in life may prevent cancer later, with new data asserting that young women who eat more apples, bananas, grapes, oranges and kale may reduce their risk of developing breast cancer later in life. But if you're wondering what to eat to prevent any kind of cancer, there’s no question that vegetables such as sweet potatoes, carrots, winter squash and dark-green vegetables (broccoli, green beans, spinach, turnip greens, collard greens) are more important than fruits.

Also, a foundational aspect of a good anti-cancer diet includes eating sufficient amounts of carbohydrates, fats, and protein. A good rule to go by is to eat 75 to 85 percent of your calories as healthy fat; 8 to 15 percent as carbs, with twice as many fiber carbs as non-fiber, and 7 to 10 percent of your calories as protein (from high-quality grass-fed or pastured meats and animal products).

Of course, eliminating sugars and processed foods of all kinds, including processed meats, is tops on the list for cancer prevention. When purchasing anti-cancer foods, be sure to look for nutrient density and not quantity — that’s the true value of any food.
