Despite rapidly advancing research and treatments, breast cancer is still the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the industrialized world.
Research had shown that eating a diet high in fat and low in fruits and vegetables may contribute to a woman's risk of breast cancer. A recent study has shown that eating the following foods can reduce a woman's chance of breast cancer, whether or not she is genetically predisposed:
- Low fat dairy products
- Olive oil
- Sunflower seeds
- Foods high in Vitamin D
