Skin cancer is a woman's most prevalent cancer diagnosis in the U.S. (though breast cancer can affect all people regardless of gender).
While that's reason enough to have frequent breast cancer screenings, you may also wish to adopt a healthy diet.
Researchers studied over 1,600 persons to find a link between n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids and breast cancer.
The study indicated that n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, especially from marine sources, lower breast cancer risk.
This study shows how lifestyle choices and polyunsaturated fatty acid intake affect breast cancer risk. Lifestyle (or food) can increase breast cancer risk by one-third.
Women can reduce their breast cancer risk by eating fruits, vegetables, fibre, and whole grains and avoiding high-fat animal and dairy products.
Omega-3s are double-bonded polyunsaturated fatty acids. N-3 PUFAs have several advantages.
Omega-3s are renowned for their anti-inflammatory properties and may lower breast cancer risk. Inflammation reduces the risk of some malignancies.
Flax seeds, chia seeds, walnuts, and "low-mercury fatty SMASH fish" are good sources of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids.
To obtain enough n-3 PUFAs. Choose food sources before supplements. If a supplement is needed, ensure sure it's third-party mercury-tested.
