A new study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition examined some of the relationships between diet and breast cancer risk in African-American women. The results of their study indicated that thinner, younger African-American women who followed a "prudent" diet had a lower risk of developing breast cancer.
A "prudent" diet was defined as one rich in whole grains, vegetables, fruits, and fish while being lower in red meats, processed meats, and sweet and starchy carbohydrates. In the study, as the scores on the prudent-diet scale increased, the chances of developing breast cancer dropped.
Increasing one's breast cancer awareness is an important step in reducing one's breast cancer risk. To learn more, read my new book "Fight Now: Eat and Live Proactively Against Breast Cancer" at www.fightBCnow.com.
