This October, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, take some time to educate yourself on what you can do to reduce the risk of developing breast cancer and what you can do to help others fighting the disease. According to the American Cancer Society, about one in eight U.S. women will develop breast cancer at some point in their life.
Eating a diet rich in a variety of fruits and vegetables every day, while limiting processed and high-fat foods is a good way to avoid an increased chance of developing cancer. It is recommended to skip red meat as part of an anti-cancer diet and replace that with fish high in omega-3 fatty acids.
This awesome salmon dish is a perfect meal to make if you are trying to reduce your risk of cancer or support a loved one fighting the disease. Omega-3 fatty acids are healthy fats that help to reduce inflammation that may contribute to breast cancer.
