Take A Proactive Stance Against Cancer
(NAPSA) - A leading nutritionist is encouraging women to be more proactive in fighting breast cancer rather than waiting until after cancer forms to change their lifestyles.
"Regular screenings are just one step in fighting cancer," says nutritionist Dana Reed. "But healthy eating and regular exercise are also important because they keep the body strong and may work to reduce the risk of cancer."
Cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli contain plant compounds that have been shown to modulate cancer cell growth and development. Studies show that when cabbage is fermented into sauerkraut, these cancer-fighting benefits may be enhanced.
