2. Broccoli sprouts (broccoli sprouts)

5. Walnuts

Preliminary data indicate that snacking approximately 60 grams of walnuts each day, the progression of breast tumors to stop.Researchers from West Virginia, Marshall University School of Medicine suggests that omega-3, antioxidants and phytosterols in walnuts as an actor to inhibit cancer cell growth.

6. Blueberries

Research shows that pterostilbene, a phytonutrients in blueberries may stop tumor growth of breast cancer by causing cancer cells to self-destruct (a process called apoptosis).

7. Spinach

Premenopausal women with a high intake of folate (the best source is the spinach) had a 40 percent lower risk of breast cancer, according to a study by the American Journal of Epidemiology in 2011.

8. Eggs

Choline, an essential nutrient found abundantly in eggs, the risk of women with breast cancer sebesr 24 percent, according to a U.S. study involving over 3,000 respondents. These essential nutrients found in egg yolks. U. S. Institute of Medicine recommends that women have to meet about 425 milligrams of choline per day. Some other sources of choline include fish, poultry, beef, broccoli and wheat.

9. Salmon

Salmon is one of the few foods that contain vitamin D in large numbers. Researchers at Toronto’s Mount Sinai Hospital said that increased vitamin D from sunlight is associated with a decreased risk of breast cancer by 24 percent.
Vitamin D can prevent cancer cells. Consumption of fresh salmon or canned, in which the rich content of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), omega-3 breast cancer may help kill and prevent the spread of the disease to other parts of the body.

10. Rye bread

“The period of puberty is very important, because that is when the basic framework is made for the development of mammary glands,” said Sandra Haslam Professor of physiology, director of the Breast Cancer Center and Research Environmental MSU. He added: “What we see Preliminary research in animals is that the high-fat diet during puberty may trigger the inflammatory response that can stimulate the growth of cancer in adulthood.”

In previous studies, researchers found that the hormone progesterone to activate certain genes that trigger an inflammatory response in the mammary glands. This process may play an important role in the development of breast cancer. In this study, high-fat diet during puberty are known to have effects similar to progesterone, says Sandra Haslam.

Further research is still needed. Meanwhile, that young people should see the results of this study very seriously. Never too young to keep your diet to stay healthy and balanced. French fries, pizza, ice cream, sausages, cheese, soup, brisket and lamb satay is delicious food, but reduce the portions and frequency. Eat more vegetables, fruits, poultry and fish.

9. The use of estrogen and progestin hormone
If you receive hormonal replacement therapy of estrogen alone or estrogen plus progestin for five years or more after menopause, which has a higher risk of developing breast cancer. Besides the risk of breast cancer, estrogen plus progestin increases the risk of heart disease, stroke, dementia and blood clots.

In addition to the above smoking factor, (passive or active) and eating habits also have an impact on the risk of developing breast cancer.
