    There are many food that help prevent Breast cancer  like Vegetables such as spinach, broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage are good as well. And also known to us a green leafy vegetable best prevention for breast cancer.Omega-3 fatty acids is also best for this it found in fish like tuna and salmon .Foods which are antioxidant-rich include: blueberries, squash and especially tomatoes that what i have know so far.

    As a consumer, and not as a chef/manager etc, I know that for a Breast Cancer benefit, I would be really appreciative to see cancer-fighting foods on the menu. Not only are you raising money for Breast Cancer, but raising awareness of really positive eating too.

    Yeah thats the first thing we must learn , being aware of what we eat. prevention is better than cure. We must be clever of this because it start usually there.
