Help reduce breast cancer risk

Rapidly reproducing breast-tissue cells create lesions, called proliferative benign breast disease (PBD), which can raise chances for breast cancer. In one study, researchers measured the diets of 29,480 high school women and followed up for four years. Women who consumed the most fiber as adolescents were 25 percent less likely to have PBD compared to those who got the least fiber, and those who ate two or more servings of nuts per week were 36 percent less likely than women who ate less than one serving of nuts per month.
