A WORD FROM THE WRIGHT BALANCE

Reducing Your Risk of Cancer
It’s National Breast Cancer Awareness Month! The statistics can be frightening and in our modern world disease is on the increase. A major study published in The BMJ earlier this year showed that people who integrate a lot of ultra-processed foods into their diet have a higher risk of cancer.
This new study not only suggests that eating a lot of fruits and vegetables can lower breast cancer risk — and the risk of developing aggressive tumors, no less — but it also explains how much fruits and vegetables someone should ideally eat per day in order to offset risk.
Getting all the important nutrients can be difficult and it much easier to drive through to get your food during your busy life. Here are 10 suggestions on how to get more plants into your diet.
1. Find family and friends who want to join you on this healthier, cruelty-free journey.
2. Set realistic expectations and take it one day at a time, then a week at a time, then a month at a time...
3. Build meals around organically, locally grown whole foods.
4. Seek out plant-based versions of your favorite foods.
5. Diversify your diet, try new recipes, and enjoy your food.
6. Plan and prepare your meals ahead of time.
7. Explore different restaurants that have vegan options or options you can make vegan.
8. Watch documentaries like Forks Over Knives, Food, Inc., Cowspiracy, Earthlings, What the Health, and Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead – they will educate you and inspire you to keep going.
9. Keep a food journal and compare how you feel after you’ve eaten vegan meals compared with meat, dairy, and egg meals.
10. Recognize your progress and congratulate yourself for adopting a new lifestyle.
The researchers' analysis suggested that women who ate more than five and a half servings of fruits and vegetables daily had an 11 percent reduced risk of developing breast cancer, compared with women who ate two and half servings or under of fruits and vegetables.
Specifically, one serving consisted of one cup of raw leafy vegetables, half a cup of either raw or cooked vegetables, or half a cup of raw or cooked fruit.
So what does this mean? According to the researchers, this suggests that fruits and vegetables contain other nutrients, such as antioxidants, that may contribute to offsetting cancer risk.
A diet with lots of fruits and vegetables is associated with many other health benefits. What have you got to lose? Make small changes this month to incorporate more fruit and veggies into your day. Your body will benefit greatly!
