Here’s a Bunny Way to Keep Breast Cancer Away! Eat Carrots

Breast cancer affects thousands of women around the world and one of the deadliest of it is estrogen triggered breast cancer.

So far, there are not many specific treatments for this hormone-induced breast cancer. Now a new study has found that consuming lots of carotene-rich foods such as carrots, mangoes can help prevent this disease.

The study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition was conducted by researchers at the University Medical Center, Utrecht, the Netherlands. The experiment was carried out among 3,000 women. Half of the women had breast cancer while another half was healthy individuals. All of them were given a diet rich in carotene foods.

Researchers found that women who ate loads of these foods had a 40-60 percent lesser risk of developing non-hormone sensitive breast cancers. But unfortunately, carotene-rich foods did not reduce the risk of estrogen-induced breast cancer.

Two subtypes of carotenes are alpha and beta carotene and the study found that alpha-carotene showed greater breast cancer reduction. Therefore, the study suggests consuming lots of carotene foods to reduce the risk of breast cancer.
