Some Foods can Block Breast Cancer Metastasis

More than 40 plant-based compounds,  that block or slow down breast and some other types of cancer metastasis, were  identified in a study published on line last month. Some of these protective foods include: amino acids; vitamin D3;  ginseng extract; lycopene, found in tomatoes; curcumin, found in tumeric; pomegranate juice and fish oil.

The study, by  pharmacology professor Gary Meadows, published in Cancer and Metastasis, was surprisingly , the first to focus on metastatic-blocking foods and supplements.

“Earlier studies by dozens of researchers have clearly identified many of these same foods as helping stop breast cancer before it can begin,” said Susan Wadia-Ells, author of the forthcoming book, Busting Breast Cancer: 7 Simple Steps to protect our daughters from this unnecessary disease, and founding director of the National Breast Cancer Prevention Project/Busting Breast Cancer.

“It’s comforting to know that women can enjoy both preventative and critical life-saving benefits from eating these healthy and inexpensive foods and supplements,” said Wadia-Ells.
