Breast Cancer - Reducing Risk

One in ten women in Canada are getting breast cancer. This illness has become a major cause of mortality in the female population. The effects of breast cancer cause a staggering amount of human suffering and can strike down a woman in her most creative and productive years.
Although the research is many times conflicting about its prevention, it does appear that simple, safe measures can be taken to reduce breast cancers’ incidence in the population.
This article suggests early implementable procedures to reduce risk. It does not advise on treatment of the established disease.
Switch your diet to a more vegetarian mode. Reduce your intake of red meat and fatty poultry. If you can’t go totally vegetarian, at least consume 3 or more vegetarian meals in your diet every week.
1. Take antioxidants.
The antioxidant group of nutrients act as rancidity traps and they reduce the production of these rancid, cancer triggering chemicals. These antioxidants can be listed as follows:
2. The use of specific oils.
These include the following:
3. The role of detoxification.
Because the breast tissue is a sink for the accumulation of fat soluble chemicals which find their way into our food chain and therefore into our bodies, it may be worthwhile in going through decontamination procedures to reduce the levels of these toxic substances.
There are various ways that this can be achieved in various ways, such as in metabolic cleaning procedures, the use of macrobiotic type diets and one effective program called "The Hubbard Method™ of Detoxification", which involves sauna, niacin and exercise. This method is fully explained in the book "Clear Body, Clear Mind", by L. Ron Hubbard.
Lowering the bio-accumulation of toxic chemicals in the body could be a major step in breast cancer prevention.
No nutritional programme, no number of antioxidants and no detoxification programme will totally prevent the occurrence of breast cancer. It is the cunning nature of "the beast" (the cancer cell), which weasels its way through the body.
But, it is my opinion that you can reduce risk, you can reduce your chances and you can be at some cause over developing breast cancer, by making simple changes to your life style, by taking certain nutrients and by reducing contaminant load in the body.
