Breast cancer is currently the most common form of cancer in women. This is not to say that men don't get breast cancer, but there are far fewer male patient diagnoses each year. Knowing enough to catch breast cancer in its early stages, staying healthy, and getting regular screenings can go a long way toward a good prognosis and treatability.

1. Eat mostly Plants

A recent Harvard study showed eating a diet rich in vegetables and fruits can reduce your risk of developing breast cancer. If you must eat meat, stay away from grilled meat, as the carcinogens from open-flame grilling can increase your cancer risk. The best vegetables to eat are leafy greens, carrots, tomatoes, and red peppers. These all contain high levels of carotenoids, antioxidants shown to reduce cancer risk by up to 20%.
