Breast cancer increases throughout the world is a huge concern. I am no doctor but I am learning more and more what I eat has profound ramifications to the cells in my body. I remember mom always saying to “eat your vegetables” when I was growing up but never really understood why. Not until dad provided me an awesome book to read two years ago called “How Not To Die” by Michael Greger, MD. You can find his book on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/How-Not-Die-Discover-Scientifically-ebook/dp/B00Y7USB14/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1509393080&sr=8-1&dpID=51jQeMnrnuL&preST=_SY445_QL70_&dpSrc=detail. This book really has helped me.
Instead of taking medications to “bandage” my challenges I am using food as the better medications. I still have room to work on this but I am seeing how important now fruits, vegetables and the correct proteins to eat are beneficial to me.

Anderson has spent the years since coming up with pragmatic solutions for low- and middle-income countries, where women are traditionally diagnosed at much later stages and misguided good intentions often result in squandered resources.
