We always knew eating our greens was good – but apparently it may be really good for you if you have breast cancer.
Eating specific green vegetables might have a positive impact on survival in breast cancer patients, according to the results of a new study. The Shanghai Breast Cancer Survival Study showed that eating cruciferous vegetables after a diagnosis of breast cancer was associated with improved survival. They had a reduced risk for total mortality, breast-cancer-specific mortality and recurrence.
So it’s not just the kids who need to eat all their greens!
