Supplements That Prevent Breast Cancer

User Profile
Increase your consumption of vegetables, especially cruciferous family - cabbage, broccoli, brussel sprouts and kale. The main ingredient in these vegetables is indole carbinols, which promote 2 hydroxyestrone, (a protective estrogen) and counters the proliferative effect of carcinogenic 16 alphahydroxy estrone (a bad estrogen). Indole carbinols are also available in capsule form as I3C or DIM.

Consume foods such as garlic, onions, lettuce and cruciferous vegetables that promote bonding of bile to glucuronic acid which aids our body in removing bad estrogens. Calcium D-Glucaric acid is a supplement that improves estrogen metabolism. It should be taken in doses of 500mg twice daily.

Inositol hexaphoshate, known as IP-6, 1200mg daily. Derived from rice bran, IP-6 can decrease cell division; induce normal cell death and stop metastases.

A study was conducted a Harvard University a few years ago . The research based on almost 90,000 women showed that lean women of normal weight who had a D-cup at the age of 20 were significantly more likely to go on to develop the cancer than those wearing an A-cup.

There are parallels between wearing under wire bras and the incidence of fibrocystic disease and breast cancer.
Consider buy genie bras.
