That includes lots of fruits and vegetables, and as a teenager can be a tool for women to eat a high-fiber diet, the lower their risk for breast cancer to help.
More than 44,000 women, diet and health, a new study looking at the data, during high school, about 28 grams of fiber a day, those who report spending more money, than those who said breast cancer before menopause had a significantly lower risk found that they ate less than 15 grams a day.
Harvard University T.H. The study appears in the journal Pediatrics, researchers from the Chan School of Public Health, focusing on factors that affect women's health nurses, a large, ongoing, analyzed data from a national study.
"The results of this research to prevent breast cancer later in life, a high-fiber diet on the role of early life stress. Such fruits, vegetables and whole grains early in life as food rich in fiber High consumption of foods can help reduce breast cancer incidence, "said lead author Mary Farvid, a visiting scientist at Harvard, told CBS News.
Results Breast cancer risk is 12 depending on how much they ate, eating more dietary fiber in these young women showed that 19 per cent lower. Eating more fiber during puberty overall 16 percent lower risk of breast cancer associated with, and breast cancer was 24 percent lower risk before menopause.
Farvid day increase in fiber intake during adolescence results every additional 10 grams by 14 percent lower risk of breast cancer shows that the.
"With 30 percent and higher fiber intake, possibly even more than that would reduce the risk by 25 to 30 grams of daily fiber is recommended," Farvid said. "He later in life rather than increase the amount of dietary fiber intake, women in the prevention of breast cancer are themselves a huge favor."
Eating more fruits and vegetables were particularly beneficial, the researchers said.
Healthy, high-fiber food choices apples, pears, raspberries and, artichokes, green peas, broccoli, split peas, lentils, beans, whole wheat pasta, whole grain bread, brown rice, bran flakes, and included oatmeal.
Why these foods will have its effect?
In an accompanying editorial, Dr. Kimberly Blackwell of Duke University Medical Center through a change in dietary fiber gut microbiome could cut down on circulating estrogen levels, there is evidence that long-term, he said.
More recent evidence that dietary fiber and more fiber foods are a convenient way to reduce the risk, and the risk of breast cancer that has come to light that suggests a relationship between.
The study identified a weakness in women in their 30s and 40s, when his teenage diet were asked to recall the details. Nevertheless, Blackwell "encourage pediatricians and potential benefits of a high fiber diet as a reduction in breast cancer risk, it is appropriate to add.", He said
Dr. Stephanie Bernik, Lenox Hill Hospital, Chief of Surgical Oncology, New York, "the first to start healthy habits to encourage people to support it gives to the fact.", CB S told the news
Dr. Deanna Attai, University of California Los Angeles David Geffen School of Medicine, assistant clinical professor of surgery, an observational study, while a medical intervention, diet and health is a big point, he said, .
"Sexy headline eat it and you will have a lower risk of breast cancer, but, it is better to focus on the move, because eating more fiber and you'll be a healthy person and you will be less likely to be obese and chronic inflammation and the risk of heart disease and cancer will be lower that the other things, "said Attai.
He said, "the message as far as increasing fiber is a good, but it also has to be put into perspective. This, by which we can reduce the risk of further study guarantee is only a method. "
