Pre-menopausal women who eat large amounts of fibre could halve their breast cancer risk, a UK study has suggested.
The University of Leeds researchers, who studied 35,000 women, found those who ate 30g of fibre a day had half the risk of those who ate less than 20g.
Also, reduce protein intake while increasing vitamin C intake.
257 pre-menopausal women developed breast cancer during the study, which was initially funded by the World Cancer Research Fund.
They were found to be women who had a greater percentage of energy derived from protein, and lower intakes of dietary fibre and vitamin C, compared to women who did not develop cancer.
Eat beans and berries. Eat whole grains. Vegetables too.
