Mediterranean diet can help lower odds of aggressive breast cancer by as much as 40 percent

A new new study finds that eating a Mediterranean diet–rich in fruit, vegetables, nuts, whole grains and olive oil– can help reduce the risk of one of the worst types of breast cancer by 40 percent.  The research, described here, tracked more than 60,000 women over two decades.

“I now eat far more veggies, and look at packaging, cutting processed foods, and working on cutting out sugar.”
“I don’t look at meat as the main part of my meal.  I eat less meat and more fruits and vegetables.  I seek out plant-based recipes.  Lastly, I try and will continue to try to eat foods I have not eaten before, e.g. eggplant and kale. (Still not fond of kale, but at least I tried it.)"
