Breast cancer and diet

This month, October, is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Much of the information provided by the media surrounded prevention (self breast exams, mammograms, annual physical check-ups) and treatment. However, little is said about the correlation of diet and the rate of breast cancer. Since the results of the China Project, directed by Dr. T. Colin Campbell, were released causing great surprise in the medical field, many more studies have followed. There is evidence that high dietary fat intake, particularly animal fat, is linked to breast cancer, among others.

Women in countries where people mostly consume a plant-based diet have a lower rate of breast cancer than women in other countries in which the intake of animal products is high, such as in the US.

It should be no surprise to Christians that the best diet for us is the one God prescribed to everyone in the Garden of Eden and the one that will be reinstated in the coming Peaceable Kingdom. A balanced plant-based diet is the healthiest one for our bodies, temples of the Holy Spirit. It honors God and all of God’s creation.
