Breast cancer is the number 1 cancer killer in non-smoking women.  For the best results, evidenced-based therapy utilizing surgery, chemotherapy and radiation is the cornerstone of treatment.

Lifestyle measures can help prevent breast cancer as well as improve the success of treatment for breast cancer.

These measures include:

  • No tobacco
  • Plant-based whole foods, in particular:
    • Daily cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, kale, cabbage, brussel sprouts)
    • Daily colorful fruits and vegetables, to include berries
    • Soy is OK, and probably helpful
  • Regular physical activity, at least 30 minutes, at a moderate level, at least 5 days a week
  • Minimiza animal products and processed foods, especially dairy products
  • Minimize alcohol
