Hi, this is Rachael Richardson, with Nutrolution, in South Beach, Miami, Florida. In this clip, we're going to talk about how you can eat to prevent breast cancer. Now, breast cancer is one of those hormonal diseases, and one of the most important things that you can do to protect your hormone levels, and eliminate excess estrogens that can contribute to breast cancer is to reduce your sugars. So actually, when you eat sugar your body secretes insulin, and when your body secretes insulin it also changes your estrogen balance; actually raises it and makes you more prone to breast cancer and other hormonal cancers. So reducing sugar should be your number one priority if you're looking to prevent, which we all are, breast cancer. Other things that you can do are consider drinking up to actually eight cups of green tea a day. Japanese studies have shown us that this is the level that really makes a significant impact on breast cancer levels, so good ways to do that are to make a big pot, and to drink it cold throughout the day, or you can even get it from Starbucks and get your refills every day. This is Rachael Richardson, and this has been how to eat to prevent breast cancer.
