8 Foods That Will Help You Fight Breast Cancer

Use your diet to help you take control in the fight against breast cancer

Here's a list of foods you should consider adding to your shopping list.

When people are diagnosed with breast cancer they can feel as if they’ve lost all control — of their life, their health, and their happiness. As the diagnosis sets in and treatments begin, patients devote themselves to cancer-healing regimens and their bodies may feel the effects along the way. Recently, The Daily Meal reviewed a cookbook that educates readers on the effects one's diet can have on the body when battling cancer.

Co-author and cancer survivor Kendall Scott feels very strongly about the message of her book, especially during October. Breast Cancer Awareness Month is about more than just the "boobs and tatas" that so many campaigns and catchy slogans focus on, she says, but it’s about the person behind the breasts who is suffering from cancer. Nutrition is Scott's answer to that; feeding the body and making it strong enough to stave off cancer. Nothing is more important to us at The Daily Meal than supporting the fight against breast cancer through food, so we asked Scott to work with us to come up with a list of foods that will help women (and men for that matter) fight cancer before, during, and after diagnosis. While there are many things that may cause breast cancer, Scott told us that diet is closely linked, and fortunately enough, it's one thing we have control of. Educate yourself on these breast-cancer fighting foods and add them to your shopping list right away.
