Breast Cancer Awareness Month

How you can help!

It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month,

and with breast cancer being the most common cancer in women worldwide,

it’s imperative that we show our solidarity and support by sharing our knowledge.

 

Signs & Symptoms

Eating a healthy, balanced diet may help reduce your risk in developing numerous diseases, whilst providing you with sustained energy throughout your day.  

It’s important to understand that there is no food that can stop cancer in its tracks, or bring your risk of developing cancer to zero. Following a healthy diet can reduce your risk, but it won’t eliminate it.

Improving your diet doesn’t need to be a chore, it can be as simple as trying to eat more:

 

Fresh vegetables, fruit, and legumes

  • Berries
  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Chickpeas
  • Grapes
  • Leafy Greens
  • Oranges
  • Peas
  • Pears
  • Spinach
  • Tomatoes
  • Sweet Potatoes

Try to keep to colorful, fresh produce, rather than frozen and canned.

Whole grains

An important element in any diet, try and stick to a mix of the below;

  • Rice
  • Pasta
  • Noodles
  • Oatmeal

Protein

  • Fish
  • Lean chicken or turkey
  • Tofu
  • Lentils
  • Black or red beans
