There are a number of
lifestyle changes which a person can adopt if they wish to lower their chances
of developing breast cancer.
According to Dr Marilyn Glenville, a leading nutritionist specialising in
women's health and founder of marilynglenville.com, vegetables such as
broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower contain a powerful anti–cancer substance.
She explained that eating 1.5 cups of the vegetables each day will give the
body enough indole-3-carbinol to detoxify any excess oestrogen and subsequently
reduce the risk of developing breast cancer by up to 25 per cent.
Other simple changes could also be implemented as Dr Glenvile stated that
regular exercise can be beneficial.
"Walking for just half an hour a day has been shown to halve the risk
of developing breast cancer," she added.
According to Cancer Research UK, breast cancer
accounts for 16 per cent of all diagnoses of the disease - a figure which
equated to 48,034 new incidences in 2008.
