Your risk of breast cancer could go up to 20% if you consume these foods.

 If you are a woman who has passed menopause and your diet consists of unhealthy, highly processed foods, potatoes, sweet drinks, and refined grains devoid of fiber and essential nutrients, you may develop breast cancer.

French researchers claim that certain lifestyle factors can raise your risk of breast cancer even if you do not genetically carry the disease's associated mutations.

The majority of people underestimate the impact of their lifestyle and diet on their health. New evidence suggests that our daily diet is a major determinant of whether we contract serious diseases such as breast cancer.

The team led by Sanama Shah, a doctoral student at Paris-Saclay University, analyzed the data of over 65,000 individuals. women aged 40 to 65 who have participated in the Etude Epidémiologique aux femmes de la Mutuelle Générale de l'Education Nationale study for more than 20 years . Nearly 4,000 individuals were registered at that time. occurrences of breast cancer. The focus of research has been on determining how plant-based diets affect this disease risk in postmenopausal women.

Researchers discovered that those with the healthiest diets were less likely to develop breast cancer. What was thought to be the optimal diet for reducing the risk of this cancer? At the most recent meeting of the American Society for Nutrition, the researchers' conclusions were presented in detail.

Researchers discovered that plant-based diets can vary substantially in terms of the nutritional value of the foods consumed, so they classified them as either healthier or less healthy.

Even if they occasionally consumed animal-based foods, women who regularly consumed a healthy, predominantly plant-based diet were 14 percent less likely to develop breast cancer. 

Women who regularly ate less healthy foods, such as desserts, fruit juices, and potatoes, on the other hand, had a 20% higher risk of developing breast cancer.

In both instances, such a diet may contain animal products, according to the author of a recent study. According to her, eating a healthy plant-based diet without giving up meat or animal products entirely and avoiding unhealthy, highly processed foods is beneficial to the body and can prevent the development of all types of breast cancer in postmenopausal women.

Colon cancer has been proven to be prevented by taking aspirin

Another advantage of aspirin, a miracle medicine that has been used for over a century, is that it can help to prevent colon cancer.

Aspirin prevents cancer cells from developing and forces them to die naturally. If some of these cells escape the process, they can develop into tumours and cancer.

The use of aspirin in this process has been demonstrated to be quite beneficial, particularly in gastric and intestinal malignancies, where it can help inhibit cancer cells from spreading.

Dr. Dominic Wooders, a public health specialist at the University of California, Berkeley, explained, "Aspirin inhibits the proliferation of cancer cells and has an effect on their birth rates and deaths." On the one hand, it increases cell death; on the other hand, it stops malignant tumours from spreading.

Another research expert, Natalia Kumarova, believes that aspirin may help prevent cancer cells from becoming sick and detrimental to the body, based on Darwin's theory of evolution. As a result, colon cancer slows down and may even prevent the cell from changing into cancer in the first place. That's why aspirin's position is so intriguing.

Many persons with genetic disorders were enlisted in this study, as they could have been diagnosed with various types of cancer as a result of Lynch syndrome. For two years, they were divided into two groups and given 600 mg of aspirin daily. It was discovered two years later that it could cut the risk of colon cancer by 63%. Other evidence and investigations support this theory.

Experts say they're still trying to figure out what's going on, but it's certainly given aspirin a new benefit.

Cancer prevention is important.

A change in diet is always one of the points of preventive for any disease. And cancer is no exception, since specific diets have been shown to lower cancer risk.

Garlic contains anti-tumor compounds, broccoli contains isothiocyanate, which can destroy cancer cells, and greens remove cancer cells from the body.

Citrus fruits, grapes, red wine, blueberries, tomatoes, and green tea have anti-carcinogenic qualities, according to studies. So include these items in your diet, but don't overdo it because you need to be correct in all you do.
