Going Vegan, that is, trying out greens and grains, is more helpful than fat stuffed non-vegetarian food items.They reduce the chances of formation of cancerous cells in your breast along with reducing the fatal risk that comes along.
A study conducted on postmenopausal women who followed a low-fat diet for eight years as compared to women who didn’t; gave us the following conclusions :
Women who were careful with their diet had reduced risk of cancer invasion
Their survival rate increased by 82%
They also showed lower rates of heart disease mortality risk.
On the contrary, women who didn’t follow a particular diet routine were at 78% survival risks.
However, the two groups of women had similar breast cancer characteristics. No changes were seen in size, nodal status, and distribution of poor prognosis, triple- negative cancer, and HER2 positive cancers.
So postmenopausal jittery women! If you are nervous that a cancerous lump may soon swell in your breasts, Go Vegan!
