Free Breast Cancer Book Details Top Ten Foods to Reduce Risk
Aaron Tabor, MD and Lillie Shockney, RN Recommend Top Foods and Lifestyle Changes to Lower Cancer Risk in FIGHT NOW: Eat & Live Proactively Against Breast Cancer
WINSTON-SALEM, NC, September 2010 – Tragically, over 40,000 women will die with breast cancer this year in America as part of over 200,000 new diagnoses. Current anti-breast cancer medical efforts are aimed at critical early detection with mammograms. Early detection allows doctors to treat the cancer while it is still small and confined to the breasts. However, new medical research strongly suggests that women can eat and live proactively to prevent breast cancer before it strikes. Aaron Tabor, M.D., along with Lillie Shockney, RN, have written FIGHT NOW for women who want to reduce breast cancer risk, or risk of cancer recurrence, with proper eating and lifestyle choices. FIGHT NOW is available for free download.
“New medical research documents that many controllable choices can decrease risk of breast cancer. Women shouldn’t wait around to simply become another random breast cancer victim. Whether you are currently a breast cancer patient, a survivor, or at high-risk for breast cancer, you can choose to fight now using the latest eating and lifestyle research. Prevention is the best cure,” said Dr. Tabor.
Dr. Tabor’s top ten food items to fight breast cancer include easy-to-enjoy carrots, apples, and green tea. According to Dr. Tabor, “Carrots and other foods rich in beta-carotene may lower your breast cancer relative risk by up to 221%, and lower the risk of invasive cancer. A natural substance in raw carrots named ‘falcarinol’ can slow the growth of cancer cells. Falcarinol is inactivated by heat or cooking, so it is critical to eat raw carrots, too.”
“A few apples a day may truly keep the breast cancer surgeon away. Six medical studies, published in the past year by Cornell researchers, report that apple extracts can prevent breast cancer by multiple mechanisms. Specifically, the studies show that natural substances found in apples decrease the number of tumors, size of tumors, and tumor growth rates in animal models. The more apple extract the animals were fed, the greater the reduction in cancer. Remarkably, the researchers found that the most deadly ‘adenocarcinoma’ form of breast cancer was found in 81% of animals not fed the apple extract, but in only 23% of the animals fed the highest dose of the apple extract. The same researchers found new substances in apple skins that also have anti-cancer activities,” said Dr. Tabor.
“Green tea consumption may reduce your breast cancer relative risk by over 50%. Green tea is rich in potent ‘polyphenol’ antioxidants that protect your DNA from damage and shortening, reduce inflammation, reduce estrogen, and reduce breast tissue density. The recommended amount to consume is 2 to 4 cups per day, or you can take a green tea supplement,” added Dr. Tabor.
While carrots, apples, and green tea are three easy anti-breast cancer food items, FIGHT NOW contains a full listing of even more powerful foods to enjoy or to eliminate to lower risk. High consumption of one particular group of foods may increase relative risk of breast cancer by up to 253%.
Internationally-recognized breast cancer nurse Lillie Shockney, RN, BS, MAS, who has survived breast cancer twice, emphasizes, “We have control over how we nourish our bodies. This means that we may be able to reduce our breast cancer risk by making smarter choices. The same applies for our families. We want to reduce the risk of our daughters ever hearing the words, ‘You have breast cancer.’”
Developed during the past two years with new medical research reviewed from leading hospitals around the world, FIGHT NOW helps readers take immediate action to start lowering breast cancer risk with:
• The top ten foods that may reduce risk of breast cancer
• A simple anti-breast cancer vitamin lab test to reduce risk by up to 70%
• The foods to eliminate that may increase relative risk by up to 253%
• A juicy fruit bursting with antioxidants that could lower risk by up to 87%
• An easy, clinically tested way to lose weight and belly fat, while reducing hunger, that could lower relative risk by up to 300%
• A healthy oil that could lower relative risk by up to 94%
• A simple lifestyle change that could lower risk of recurrence and risk of dying from breast cancer by up to 50%
• Common breast cancer “myths” exposed including answers on cosmetics, breast implants, tight-fitting bras, and coffee in relation to breast cancer risk
• A “7-Day Prescription for Healthier Breasts”
“I am a breast cancer survivor who just finished chemotherapy, but now I know how important my diet and lifestyle is to my recovery and saving my life after reading FIGHT NOW,” commented Patti R..
During the past 100 years, doctors have focused primarily on drugs, surgery, and medical tests to fight disease. This has undoubtedly extended the average life span. In fact, modern medicine has nearly doubled the average lifespan since the early 1900’s.
“We should have also included vigorous research into the power of foods and lifestyle changes to prevent and cure disease. The purpose of our medical research is to empower women to become proactive against breast cancer now with specific food and lifestyle choices. A woman’s only alternative is to be reactive after a breast cancer diagnosis, or breast cancer recurrence. The choice is clear. We can fight now to change our future,” said Dr. Tabor. Lillie Shockney, RN, adds, “I look forward to the day when breast cancer appears in medical books under the chapter titled, ‘Cured Diseases.’ Until then, let’s take proactive steps to reduce risk where we can to save more lives (and breasts).”
