October is Breast Cancer Awareness month; while no food or diet can prevent you from getting breast cancer, research has shown that eating a healthy diet and getting regular exercise can help reduce your chances for getting cancer and many other chronic diseases. Make sure to practice a healthy lifestyle each day.

 

Help Reduce Your Risk of Breast Cancer with these tips from the ACS 

·      Limit your intake of saturated fats. Eat more healthy fats, like fish, nuts and olive oil

·      Fill up on fiber: Eat plenty of Fruits and vegetables; strive for more than 5 cups per day. 

·      Watch your alcohol intake. Limit to no more than one drink per day for women. 

·      Eat foods high in omega-3 fatty acids such as fish, walnuts and flaxseed. 

·      Avoid trans fats, processed meats, and charred or smoked foods. 

·      Keep your body weight in a healthy range for your height and frame.

·      Exercise for at least 30 minutes, five times a week

·      If you are at or above the age of 40, be sure to have a mammogram one time per year and breast self-exam monthly. Prevention is the best medicine! 

 

A healthy weight also significantly contributes to health status. Seek a Registered Dietitian for a nutrition screening and assessment if you are at risk. For more information on cancer prevention and to learn about raising awareness, contact the American Cancer Society.
