My Top 10 Breast Cancer Prevention Superfoods (Part 1)

Note: There is now a Breast Cancer Prevention Superfoods (Part 2), they are the result of additional research and dietary additions over the past couple of years……

…also, remember these are not "magic bullets", in that, it is not about eating a handful of berries and healing cancer. It more about having as many "foot soldiers" as possible in your daily nutrition that your allow your body's immune system to prevent Breast Cancer.

A good approach is adding as many as possible to salads and/or daily smoothies

 

……..AVOID CONVENTIONAL DAIRY, if doing milk, cheese and the rest, go for GRASS FED, cheese, and other dairy. There "seems" to be some link to whatever is in the composition of commercial dairy, and breast cancer. Also I would beware of the dangers of soy.

Just wanted to drop a note thanking you for posting such great information.  I am almost up to a daily smoothie and have a couple boys who beg for smoothies as well.  I've started adding additional ingredients to make them healthier, all because of your blog and info that you have posted.  I also love all the images that you post on here too – great motivation!  Thank you!  You are one of my favorite blogs to read.  I found your blog because the picture of the fruit plate that made the picture of the palm tree and beach (banana, kiwi and madarins) came across my pinterest feed and I recreated it for my boys and they loved it.

Wow!!!! Thanks Jenny. I don’t blog for money, compliments like this are my payment. I try to put my heart and soul into my blog, and was hoping it could be a visually appealing place to stop for 60 seconds, and maybe the reader might learn something. I take my photos seriously and sometimes can’t even post an article until I find the right picture. For the breast cancer article, I had to find a “modern, earthy” woman that looked like she was on the beach. Pretty anal huh? I’m pretty passionate about breast cancer because my mother and all 7 of her sisters got it, and I remember praying if I ever got old enough, to be able to help with the solution. I think my mom and sisters got exposed to DEET (or DDT) however, since they were poor growing up and sprayed it in the bed every night to combat bedbugs. So far as smoothies, everybody has their own flow, but here are some pointers (once you get that thing tasting delicious, you’ll be hooked forever).
1) If you get into Bananas, dice them up and throw in freezer, and throw them into smoothie, it makes that thing like a milkshake.
2) Papaya works well diced and frozen, and is an incredible superfood that doesn’t get it’s just due
3)Reishi mushrooms in powder, and awesome superfood
4)Ceylon Cinnamon as opposed to more common cinnamon with quality honey causes a chemical reaction that can supposedly cure any disease.
5)Boil green tea, and then put it in glass container in fridge as all or part of your liquid for smoothies Green tea combined with papaya is a breast cancer fighter
6)Chlorella is an incredible superfood that I take everyday in my smoothies
7)frozen fruits of choice make a smoothie delicious
8)If you are trying to adapt to the taste of veggies in a smoothie like broccoli, a great protein powder called seques/vega has a great berry taste and can “mask” the taste of veggies, if you are trying to get that smoothie fruity and milkshake tasting http://www.amazon.com/Vega-Performance-PROTEIN–Berry-Flavour/dp/B0034LEY8Q/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1368646246&sr=8-2&keywords=vega+sport+performance+protein+berry
9)Blueberries, blackberries, and black raspberries are cancer fighters, but also they make the smoothie a nice purple color (I’m not feeling those green, mud colored smoothies, maybe that’s my thing
10) Save the apple cores, freeze them, and throw them in the smoothie. Apple seeds are cancer fighters (along with apricot seeds), and the apple core will help give the smoothie a deeper fruit taste

Smoothies ebb and flow and evolve so they will change as you learn more. Here is my personal smoothie recipe in case you haven’t seen it on the blog, although I have added a fed things to it. https://www.gaiahealthblog.com/2011/12/23/dougssmoothie/ .

Thanks for the comment, that lady is one of my coolest pictures in my eye, it made my day that someone acknowledged it, and is my motivation to keep putting practical information out there. Enjoy those smoothies!!!!

The two most important things to can consume to prevent breast cancer are;

1.  Nascent iodine.

2.  vitamin d3

11.26.14

My list is focused on whole food sources, which I think one should try before going to supplements (vitamin D supplements wreaked havoc on my sleep and so forth, though one of my friend says he loves them). The wild caught salmon on my “Part 2” list is enough to keep my Vitamin D levels in the 40’s, and on my list, I mention salmon as a good source of vitamin D. Though some sources say V-D levels need to be higher, like in the 80’s or 90’s, one researcher said the Massai tribe in Kenya had the highest vitamin D levels of all the tribes he measured, at 44.5. 

The Nascent Iodine, I absolutely had never heard of before, after a preliminary half hour’s resrch on that, I think it worth me writing a separate article on that, because it seems like important information to pass on.

"Save the apple cores, freeze them, and throw them in the smoothie. Apple seeds are cancer fighters"

Thanks for the great tips but I'm surprised as apple seeds are to contain some amount of cyanide and if lots of is cosumed can kill!

Hi NAdine,

You have to look at from the point of view of most herbs and superfoods. Most if not all have a level of toxicity, in that if you consume too many of them, they become toxic. With apple seeds, as I understand it, we’re talking about 1 or two cups of apple seeds, which is basically hundreds of seeds as opposed to the 10 or so that are found in an apple. To eat 1 or two cups of apple seeds, you would have to eat perhaps 100 apple cores, which nobody is gonna do in one sitting.

I’m not so sure if its the cyanide that kills at toxic levels, bit the overall processing of those 2 cups of seeds can be toxic. Once again this all all from my basic research, but I have a bag of apple cores in the freezer right now and I throw one in my smoothie almost every day, been doing it for 7 years, and never felt better.
