While there was no difinitive confirmation in that statement, there is some excellent news. Scientists studying natural compounds in plants are finding plenty of may offer some level of protection against breast cancer. That means ladies can start taking control of their breast cancer risk by being attentive to what they eat & drink.
In detailed research published in BioMed Central's open access journal Breast Cancer Research, scientists from Sweden's prestigious Karolinska Institute present compelling proof that something in coffee slashes the risk of breast cancer.
Breast cancer is a serious concern for ladies. According to the National Cancer Institute, the disease took about 50,000 lives last year in the U.S. alone. But the mainstream media, as well as mainstream medicine, often treat breast cancer as something that strikes out of the blue -- giving ladies no choice but to hope they are not of the "unlucky" ones to get breast cancer. Simultaneously this subjects ladies to to mammography so a malignancy can be spotted early, despite the fact the actual radiation exposure associated with mammograms is known to raise the risk of breast cancer in some ladies.
The new study concludes that drinking coffee specifically reduces the risk of what researchers call anti-estrogen-resistant estrogen-receptor (ER) negative breast cancer, dubbed ER-negative breast cancer for short.
The Sweden research team compared lifestyle factors & coffee consumption between ladies with breast cancer & ladies the same age that did not have any breast malignancies. It turns out that coffee drinkers had a far lower incidence of breast cancer overall than ladies who seldom drank coffee.
Delving further in to the impact of coffee, the scientists looked at several lifestyle factors that affect breast cancer rates, including age at menopause, exercise, weight, schooling, as well as a relatives history of breast cancer. One time they had adjusted their information to account for all of these factors, they found that the protective effect of coffee on breast cancer zeroed on type of the disease -- the ER-negative breast cancer.
Although the proof appears strong that coffee has beneficial effects in defending ladies from ER-negative breast cancer, it is not clear what the mechanism & compounds involved are. The researchers noted in a statement to the media that the protection from coffee may be due to way the coffee is prepared, or perhaps the type of coffee bean used.
For example, in a study published in the journal Crop Science, Colorado State University scientists studied the anti-cancer activity of six kinds of dry legumes & found consumption of every kind of bean reduced the incidence of cancer & tumors in animal models.
Bottom line: as NaturalNews has reported historicallyin the past, the new coffee study is the latest in a growing body of scientific information showing that natural substances are formidable weapons to both prevent various types of breast cancer & even halt cancerous growth one time cells are malignant.
In addition, Elaine Hardman, PhD, associate professor of medicine at Marshall University School of Medicine, gives this advice to ladies based on her cancer research: eat more walnuts. Her research strongly suggests those nuts can substantially reduce the risk of breast cancer.
