It's not bad to feel like Violet Beauregarde.
Before we continue, care for a spot of tea, dear? ...
No. 2: Green Tea
Green tea is a popular drink to calm the mind, engage in good conversation with friends and can even help prevent breast cancer.
It contains cathechins, which stops the growth of cancer cells and reduces the size of cancerous tumors. Green tea also contains the antioxidant EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate), which helps the body's cells from becoming damaged and aging prematurely.
Studies have shown that survival rate for breast cancer tripled for women who drank three or more cups of tea a day. For example, one study published in Cancer Epidemiology Biomarkers and Prevention found that women who did this were 37 percent less likely to develop breast cancer compared to women who didn't drink green tea.
Studies have also found that increased consumption of green tea was correlated with decreased the recurrence of stages I and II breast cancer.
Green tea is also full of Vitamin B Complex, Vitamin C and Vitamin K and can be absorbed anytime throughout the day.
Last up, it's time for some dry oil ...
No. 1: Flaxseed
Flaxseed may not seem like an appealing food, but studies have found that the seeds reduce movement of breast cancer cells and prevent them from sticking to one another.
Flaxseed contains lignans, a plant based estrogen, and omega-3 fatty acids. When a weak estrogen-like substance takes the place of the body's natural estrogen in a breast cell's estrogen receptor, then the weak substance can act as an anti-estrogen.
Eating flaxseed can reduce the risk of getting breast cancer by 40 percent, according to a recent study out of the German Cancer Research Centre. If the seeds are ground up, your body has an easier time getting to the lignans. Flaxseeds also contain Vitamin B-1, Vitamin B-2, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and are an excellent source of fiber.
Flaxseed can be eaten in yogurt, cereal or salads. They also come in flavors.
So, go ahead, plant those seeds in your tummy.
