Vitamins & Calcium Protect Against Breast Cancer!
Vitamins and Breast Cancer: A Preventative Approach
A recent study originating in Puerto Rico, found that women who regularly supplement with vitamins had a 30% lower risk of breast cancer than those who did not.
They also found that women who also supplemented with calcium had a 40% less risk of the dreaded disease.
The Study's Findings...
The study compared hundreds of women who had breast cancer to hundreds of healthy women who did not, and the findings were significant.
Dr. Jaime Matta, of the Ponce School of Medicine, Puerto Rico, who conducted the study said, "You don't take a vitamin today and your breast cancer risk is reduced tomorrow. However, we did see a long term effect in breast cancer reduction."
Madam Aphrodite™ Speaks
Cancer does not appear in the body overnight; it takes time to develop. In the same way, the effects of vitamins on the body take time to be of maximum benefit.
So if you are a woman who is not supplementing with vitamins, maybe you should take a second look. As far as calcium is concerned? We know it's great for our bones, but now we know it also promotes and benefits good breast health. NOTE: Calcium citrate is the best absorbed of all calcium supplements.
