Vegetarian Diet to Prevent Breast Cancer


If you want to reduce your risk of developing breast cancer , it is time to change your eating habits. And is that a new study shows that a diet rich in vegetables and fruits, reduced by 30% the chances of getting this wrong.

Researchers at the University of Colorado published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition , the results of a study involving a total of 34 000 Chinese women, aged between 35 and 74. Most of them, exercised and stayed thin.

After interviewing and analyzing their responses, the researchers found that higher consumption of vegetables, fruits and soybeans, the lower their risk of developing the disease in postmenopausal women.

The team of Dr. Lesley M. Butler conducted a questionnaire that asked participants about their diet, weight and physical activity they perform. Moreover, none of these women had a history of breast cancer.

Thus, the researchers successfully identified two dietary patterns: the unhealthy, which ate meat, starch and saturated fat, and healthy, which is consuming plenty of vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, squash and cabbage.

Following up the study, which ended interview these women in 2005, it was noted that 10 years later it developed only 629 cases of breast cancer, according to the Singapore Cancer Registry.

In presenting the results of its investigation, Butler suggested that although this study was conducted among Chinese women, the benefits of a vegetarian diet would also apply to the population of American women.
