Breast/Prostate Cancer Prevention Plan

22 Apr

This post is for anyone who wants to prevent cancer before it strikes, and who wants to do everything that they can to keep it from reaching themselves and their family members.  This isn’t a diet, but rather some ideas for meals and foods that will help to lower your risk of these types of cancers – these ideas are meant for adult males and females, and not necessarily children, (although eating nutritious is always good for kids too.) 🙂  (Disclaimer – I am not a doctor or nutritionist, but rather, a health conscious, stay at home Mom who wants to keep her family healthy.)  🙂

I hope that you enjoy the list, (which was compiled after researching about 20 different health-related websites to find the most common cancer fighting foods that showed up.)  🙂
