Prevent Breast Cancer With What You Eat…New Evidence

Women often gain weight near and after menopause. And that’s when most breast cancer begins.

It’s not a coincidence, and new research shows both can be prevented.

Women with higher BMI have twice as high circulating estrogen as women of normal weight.

A Harvard study of 49514 women for 24 years shows that a weight gain of 10kg (22 pounds) since menopause put postmenopausal women at increased risk for invasive breast cancer.

A weight loss of 10kg (22 pounds) or more since menopause decreased breast cancer risk, especially among women who never used post-menopausal hormones.

Women who maintained their weight loss also kept their risk low, relative to women who re-gained their weight.
