As you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is a very painful time of the year for many among us, as most have been touched by breast cancer or another form of cancer in our lifetime. Whether it be yourself, a sister, mother, daughter, father, or friend, the pain of all cancer is inescapable in our modern world. There are millions fighting breast cancer as we speak and many more whose memory is cherished and honored by those who are left behind.
The clients I have worked with who have been afflicted with breast cancer or another form of cancer have always made it very clear to me: exercise and eating healthfully literally saves their lives on a physical and emotional level. I have known far too many who have suffered, and this subject is very close to my heart. I have learned everything I can to help both on the fitness and on the nutrition fronts in the ongoing fight against cancer.
There many foods that we know help in this battle. Some you may already know of, and some may surprise you with their cancer-fighting properties. Most are foods I already recommend to my clients for health, wellness, energy, and fat-burning benefits. My findings are based on many peer-reviewed studies and years of research, but, as always, please consult with your doctor before making any dramatic changes to your diet or lifestyle.
