A recent research says, that mango is a potent preventive and cure for breast cancer.
Laboratory tests conducted, revealed that the fruit is loaded with polyphenols. Polyphenols are anti-oxidants that are free radical scavengers and destroyers and promote health.
The efficacy of these polyphenols was assessed in patients suffering from breast cancer. Results of the clinical trial demonstrated that the polyphenols showed noteworthy and significant beneficial effects on breast cancers.
Susanne Talcott and her husband Steve conducted the clinical trials and investigations.
Management of breast cancer
The preliminary step towards the management of breast cancer is to understand the causative and risk factors and steadily avoiding them. A family history of breast cancer, dietary errors, obesity, poor or no physical activity are strong contributing factors leading to the development of breast tumors.
The next vital step, is a dietary and lifestyle overhaul. Eliminating certain foods from the diet such as trans fats, animal fats, saturated fats, refined and processed foods, and alcohol, has a significant prophylactic effect. Also, as much as possible, limit your exposure to environmental carcinogens like second hand cigarette smoke, pollutants, and pesticides.
Augment your intake of foods that are nutrient dense and packed with anti-oxidants. Anti-oxidants are free radical hunters and destroyers. They counteract the lethal effects of free radicals and stave off the development of cancers, by preventing damage to the DNA.
The early detection of carcinoma breast is the key to the management. The American cancer society makes certain recommendations for the early detection of breast cancer for women in the age group of 20 to 39, and for women who are over 40 years.
