 Nutrition for Breast Health -- Nutrition ideas to decrease cancer risk

"Are you concerned about developing breast cancer?  A lot of women are and here are some nutrition ideas to help decrease your risk of breast cancer.

Eat a lot of cruciferous sprouts.  Like Brussels sprouts, broccoli, alfalfa sprouts, cauliflower, kale, water cress and Daikon radish, mustard greens, and red clover.  Eat them raw or lightly steamed.  

These vegetables are high in Di-indolylmethane which binds estrogen in the liver and gut to help balance the estrogen levels in the body.  Too much estrogen can cause PMS and increase risk of breast cancer. 

These sprouts also contain Glucosinolates and Sulforaphane which are enzymes that increase the detoxification enzymes in the liver.  They help to detox our hormones and many other things from the body.

So eat your vegetables and sprouts and decrease your risk of breast cancer."
