Top 9 Foods that Promote Breast Health Recognized by Public

Dietary adjustments could reduce the danger of breast disease by around one third, according to experts in the field.

1. Soybean
Soybean contains isoflavone which, by lowering circulating levels of estrogen inhibits breast cell proliferation. Including soybean – whether as tofu or soy milk – with two meals daily is hence highly recommended for good breast health.

2. Edible Fungus
Black and white fungus, Chinese and monkey head mushrooms and tuckahoe are all natural biological response modifiers which promote the immune system and so ward off cancer.

3. Seaweed
In addition to its skin and hair care properties, edible seaweed is also an effective treatment for mammary gland hyperplasia. Research shows that the iodine in seaweed also impels luteinization of ovarian follicles and balances internal secretions. 
4. Nuts and Seeds
Peanuts contain lecithin, and almonds, walnuts and sesame seeds are rich in protein. All are antioxidants that safeguard against cancer. Nuts and seeds also help the body absorb vitamin E which makes breast tissue more elastic.

5. Fish and Seafood
Yellow-fin tuna, green turtle, mud fish, octopus, cuttlefish, sea cucumber, oysters and seaweed are all rich in aporphine alkaloids, which are vital for physical health, and particularly beneficial to the mammary glands.

6. Milk and Dairy Produce
The high calcium content of milk and dairy products promotes breast health.

7. Fruits
The multi-vitamins in grapes, kiwi fruit, lemons, strawberries, tangerines and figs also also reduce the likelihood of breast cancer.

8. Vegetables
Appropriate combinations of vegetables and protein help to maintain good physical health generally. Servings of tomatoes, carrots, cauliflower, pumpkin, onion, asparagus, cucumber, towel gourd, and green leafy vegetables, flavored with garlic, are particularly beneficial to breast heath.

9. Cereals
Wheat is high in soluble and insoluble cellulose acetate, which lower cholesterol levels and guard against cancer. Dietary experts also consider maize as a natural breast enhancer.
