I could talk about receptor sites of cells and their accepting Xenoestrogens provoking cancer onset, but what’s the point? The how to’s get to the point a lot faster. First and foremost a cancer precursor gene has been identified, and it’s important to prevent it from activation.
One identifier is intake of burnt food. You may think well that’s not me, but how many don’t mind the over done toast, the barbeques with the hot dogs and burgers blackened on the grill, smores with blackened marshmallows. All are best to be avoided. Another avoidance is food or drink heated in the microwave in a Styrofoam, plastic or plastic lined container. Much research has been done about the leaching of chemicals from the plastic to the food, and health problems of those who do it regularly. Time to get out your pyrex, glass and ceramic containers and put them to use. Limit intake of red meat, to no more than 3 times a week, especially with a family history of colon cancer. Yes, another reason to eat chicken, fish, or try the vegetarian lasagna.
Positive things you can do to prevent cancer is eating certain foods. This is only a partial list of some of the most researched food. Eat nuts, almost any type, I prefer walnuts, a small handful a few times a week in your cereal, oatmeal, yogurt etc. Berries, again almost any type, throw a handful into your dishes. Personally I keep a large bag of frozen blueberries, and defrost small amounts to add to my yogurts and cereals. Onions and garlic intake have shown a 56% – 88% drop in some cancers.
With a family history of breast, cervical and or ovarian cancer, the easiest thing is to make sure the females breast feed their infants for one complete year. Giving birth and not breastfeeding has a 38% correlation of increased cancer risk. Some more food for thought, yes, the less free radicals in your body, the lower your cancer risk. And anti-oxidents are a good thing to have. This is not by any means a complete list, but just some guidelines to jog your thinking. Next time in a restaurant: to choose the French Onion soup vs Chicken noodle, yes why not add onions to your burger, have food in a garlic sauce. Beg your companion’s pardon, and carry breathe mints.
