Dr Oz: Breast Cancer Foods
In this segment, Dr Oz introduced Rachel, a registered dietician and nutritional consultant to the American Cancer Society, to give you the 3 food groups that are critical in keeping breasts healthy.
Dr Oz: Sulforaphane Foods
A small bit of broccoli sprouts has as much sulforaphane as a pound of adult broccoli. Dr Oz had an audience member taste it, and of course, she said it was good. (Do you believe her? Try it for yourself and let us know in the comments section below.)
Dr Oz: Folate Foods
Folate rich foods help to prevent DNA damage. Women with high levels of folic acid have a 44 percent less chance of getting breast cancer. Sprouted green lentils only take 5 minutes to cook and cost only about .55 cents per serving. You can purchase sprouted green lentils at a health food store. The little leafy greens are also very easy to digest so you’ll have less gas. Dr Oz gave the lentils to (non-gassy) audience members and, of course, they liked it—and an added bonus, it didn’t give them gas either. While the lentils are still hot, add tomatoes for a little extra lycopene, which is also a cancer preventing food.
Dr Oz: Fiber Foods
Doctor Oz said that Fiber-Rich Foods are one of the best for fighting off Breast Cancer.
– Whole grains
– Wheat toast
Sprinkle white chia seeds, Ceylon cinnamon, and granulated orange peels onto your oatmeal to take your breakfast from 4 grams of fiber to 9 grams of fiber. According to Rachel, you want 30-35 grams of fiber per day. Dr Oz passed this concoction around to audience members and they loved it.
