Fiber Reduces the Risk for Aggressive Breast Cancer

A study involving 185,000 women (average age 62) has shown that higher fiber intake1 confers direct protection against breast cancer. This is especially the case for the most aggressive forms of hormone-negative breast cancer.
The researchers found that the group with the highest fiber intake compared to the lowest had a 44% less risk for developing the most difficult to treat form of breast cancer.
Fiber is known to favorably influence the metabolism of calories, help prevent leptin problems, help prevent insulin resistance, and in so doing help IGF-1 work normally to repair and rejuvenate your body instead of allowing IGF-1 to fuel cancer growth in a metabolically confused environment.
Now that we know Tamoxifen actually causes this aggressive form of breast cancer, maybe women should switch to fiber and get at least 40 grams of total fiber per day.
