First, do no harm

There’s a lot of ‘studies’ and people, including with and without RN, MD, etc. after their names, as well as companies, industries, etc. all with conflicting information.

If you’re like me, you want to know what you eat, first does no harm  (ironically, the hippocratic oath ).  Then, what can detain tumor development.

The three largest controversial topics are soy and flaxseed and green tea.

From everything I’ve read and researched, it is clear (at least to me) that processed soy products, powders, supplements and extracts are NOT beneficial and can in fact be harmful to women who have had breast cancer and is ER+.  However, it is unclear whether fermented soy, such as tempeh, miso, and natto are beneficial, and in what quantity.

When it comes to flaxseed, I’ve read very conflicting information. Until I gain some clarity, flaxseed oil may be ok, but not flaxseed… the jury is still out.

Green tea for the most part appears to have the thumbs up, but inconclusive….at worst, it does nothing to improve the situation and just enjoy the tea for what it is.

I already have an article from the book Anti-Cancer, a New Way of Life on the site, but let me expand upon that.  Other articles support the fact that foods with omega-3 (salmon, sablefish, mackeral, sardines, trout, etc. and pumpkin seeds) help your body to combat cancerous cell growth.

Vegetables (organic recommended in most cases) such as carrots, mango, sweet potato, winter squash, cantelope, spinach, broccoli, kale, cauliflower, cabbage (short-cooked), brussel sprouts, bok choy, radishes, mushrooms, watercress are beneficial to fight tumor growth.

There’s lots of suggested do’s and don’ts…. and its all your decision.  So I’m going to give you the benefit of my research in the following listed articles below:
