Ladies, if you're looking for a tasty treat that COULD help in the prevention of breast cancer? Try munching on walnuts! According to new research, Walnuts provide women with Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Antioxidants and Phytosterols which combined, could help in reducing breast cancer!
While we're on the topic of health and women, another new study has found that the longer a woman breast feeds her baby, the lower her risk for having a heart attack or stroke. Great news, considering much of what we hear in regards to breast feeding has to do with the benefits for baby!
Researchers looked at thousands of post-menopausal women and found that those who breast fed for at least a month had lower rates of diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol......all risks for heart disease. Women who breast fed their babies for more than a year, were 10% less likely to have had a heart attack, stroke or developed heart disease than women who'd never breast fed.
Here's to health benefits for Mama!
Have a great week.
