How To Optimize Your Breast Cancer Diet - Food for Breast Cancer

I find this article with links very helpful. I don't know how much there is to all the diet changes one should make to prevent, suppress or manage cancer and cancer treatments but, nonetheless, I think there's something to it and it certainly is good for anyone to eat more nutritiously and to give one's immune system the best possible chance to fight bad cells and other illnesses. This article provides simple lists of food to include and exclude from one's diet tailored to the specific sub-type of breast cancer one's dealing with. While it isn't a cure ... it makes me feel like I'm doing something to help myself. The explanations provided are interesting, too.
How To Optimize Your Breast Cancer Diet - Food for Breast Cancer: "While a diet emphasizing vegetables and fruit and de-emphasizing alcohol, red meat and omega-3 fats may reduce the likelihood of breast cancer or recurrence compared to the typical U.S. diet, simply following these rules will not maximize the chemopreventive potential of your diet. Tailoring your diet to your individual circumstances and breast cancer subtype will increase the diet's potential benefits. This web page is designed to enable you to customize your diet using the information in the Food for Breast Cancer web site. The overall goal is to bathe your normal cells with nutrients that promote healthy growth and cell division. Any new breast cancer cells that do arise are to find themselves in an environment that promotes their death and inhibits their proliferation and migration."
