This Tea Is Linked To Decreased Breast Cancer Risk

Green Tea (Camellia sinensis) leaves, which have not gone through an oxidation process, have the richest nutrient profile among all varieties of tea. Research shows that people who drink four or more cups of green tea each day have a lower overall risk of cancer and women who frequently drink green tea have a lower overall risk (or "lower overall incidence") for breast cancer.

Green tea contains phytonutrients called polyphenols, and in particular EGCG or epigallocatechin-3-gallate, which is a compound that protects against cancer. Lab tests and animal studies have shown  that EGCG works by inhibiting an enzyme that catalyzes cancer cell growth. EGCG also helps prevent cancer development by acting as a powerful antioxidant, which…

Eat This Vegetable For Breast Health

The first time I shopped for lettuce, I came home with cabbage.  Okay, you can stop laughing now. In my defense, they do look very similar.  But unlike lettuce, cabbage is classified as a cruciferous vegetable. It is related to other cruciferous vegetables like kale and broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts.  Cabbage has many nutrients and benefits, but this article will focus on its cancer fighting properties.

Cabbage contains 30 different antioxidant compounds.  Antioxidants neutralize chemicals in the body called free radicals.  Free radicals damage body cells, which increases the risk of developing cancer.  It is the job of the immune system to get rid of damaged cells and cancer cells. Antioxidants prevent cell damage,…

Breast Thermography For Detecting Breast Cancer

Most women have heard of mammograms as a tool for detecting breast cancer, but few know about breast thermography.  When it comes to breast cancer it is good to utilize as many diagnostic tools as possible. Every year in the U.S., It is predicted that one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,000 will die from the disease each year in the U.S.A.. One way to alter that prediction is to routinely get checked for breast health.

Early detection is key to surviving breast cancer.  The worst thing that can happen, is that you have a diagnostic exam done and the breast cancer is missed.  I recommend that women do self breast exams, have a breast exam done by a professional, blood tests that measure breast…

‚ÄčHerbs are usually great for improving health.  But there are times when herbs can be harmful.  Some can interact with certain medications and drugs.  Others are not safe to take when pregnant, breastfeeding, or in the process of conceiving.

Plants contain phytochemicals (plant chemicals) and phytosterols (plant hormones), which can affect the uterus and developing baby.  They can also affect a nursing newborn.  They may cause the uterus to contract.  Some constituents of the herbs can pass into the breast milk as well.

The following is a list of herbs deemed not safe to use during pregnancy.  This list is not comprehensive.  There are other herbs that are not safe, but the ones listed here are the more commonly used ones.
