Eat your vegetables

A new study shows that African-American women who ate more vegetables--especially broccoli, mustard and collard greens and cabbage--were less likely to develop double-negative breast cancer than African-American women who ate fewer vegetables. Carrots, too, were helpful.

African American women are more likely than white women to be diagnosed with estrogen receptor-negative tumors, which have a poorer prognosis than estrogen receptor-positive tumors, according to Science Daily.

The study was based on the Black Women's Health Study, which followed 59,000 African-American women, starting in 1985. Investigators from the Boston University School of Medicine reported: The incidence of ER-/PR- [estrogen-negative/progesterone-negative]breast cancer was 43 percent lower among women consuming at least two vegetables per day compared with women who ate fewer than four vegetables per week

Not quite on this topic, just a reminder. Today is National Metstatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day.

I am pretty sure it's not a parking holiday, however.

It should be a parking holiday and tax holiday.

I think that adding more veggies to all of our diets would be a great idea. I know I have started adding more greens. I read that it helps lower the acidic levels in our blood. And higher acidic levels are an ideal environment for cancer, so the lower the better. Any ideas on how to make vegetables taste good :) ?

I love certain vegetables, mostly the kohl family: broccoli, cabbage, kale, brussels sprouts. Do not like the squash family or eggplant. Breast Cancer, do you like roasted vegetables? The veg's natural sweetness comes thru. Try roasting onions, carrots and parsnips. YOu can also make kale chips, which are great. You rinse and dry them well, cut in small pieces, stir in a bowl w/ olive oil and kosher salt, then put in a pan at 200 degrees or so. you have to watch them. Move em around the pan so they don't burn. Eventually you have great crisps.

Hi C.B. :)

I'd like to share my article with you and see what you think. This is the rated G version. My original version was a little more heated with my frustration about preventative discoveries not being widely shared. I am also the formulator of Action Whey. I'd love the chance to teach you more about glutathione/cysteine. I can also send you the actual study.
