Food choices play a significant role in the health issues that affect both men and women. For women, improper or lacking nutrition can have effects on menstruation and menopause, pregnancy and breastfeeding, and increase or pose a risk for certain types of cancer. The most common form of cancer for women is breast cancer, followed by skin cancer. According to recent studies, the risk for developing either of these cancers can be greatly reduced by eating a healthy diet and ensuring you are providing your body with the nutrients it needs to stay healthy.
To be more specific, it was found that limiting alcohol intake, eating mostly plant-based foods, and maintaining a healthy body weight was associated with a 64% lower risk in developing breast cancer. Remarkably, it has been shown that in as little as two weeks, transitioning to a plant-based diet along with walking every day can significantly improve our body’s defenses against cancer and other mutating cells. Sticking to a healthier diet not only lowers the risk of cancers in women but can also help treat other conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome.
