Check-out the excerpt below from Natural News concerning green vegetables and their role in fighting breast cancer.
“Eating more cruciferous vegetables has been shown once again to play an important role in the mitigation of cancer, this time in helping women with breast cancer to live longer. A Chinese study recently presented at the 103rd annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) revealed that the more cruciferous vegetables women with breast cancer eat, the more likely they are not only to survive their condition, but also to add more years onto their lives.
Based on data collected for the Shanghai Breast Cancer Survival Study, a comprehensive, large-scale study of breast cancer survivors in China, it appears as though consumption patterns of cruciferous vegetables, or vegetables from the cabbage family, are directly proportional to survival rates. The breast cancer-specific mortality rate among women who consumed the most cruciferous vegetables, for instance, was as much as 62 percent less than among those who consumed the least or no cruciferous vegetables.
At the same time, the overall mortality rate among women who consumed cruciferous vegetables on a regular basis was found to be anywhere from 27 to 62 percent less than among women who consumed little or no cruciferous vegetables. And risk of breast cancer recurrence among cruciferous-eating women was as much as 35 percent lower than among non-eating women.”
