"Extra" Lifechanger and breast cancer specialist Dr. Kristi Funk is going to the grocery store to show you the best foods to fight breast cancer.
For your morning caffeine fix, Dr. Funk suggests trading your cup of joe for green tea. Coffee doesn't increase your risk of getting cancer, but Kristi explains, "three cups of green tea a day decreases breast cancer risk by half."
Specifically, Matcha green tea is best. Rachel Beller, a nutritional oncology specialist, reveals that Matcha "has ten to fifteen times the antioxidant power as regular green tea that comes in a bag." A splash of citrus can boost the antioxidant levels in your tea as well. "Adding lemon juice to the green tea will enhance the antioxidant power by four times." Ginger, too, is an anti-cancer heavyweight.
Spices like turmeric and oregano spruce up bland dishes while they fight-off cancer. "Population studies show that individuals who ingest turmeric on a regular basis have a lower incidence of breast cancer," Beller says, adding that oregano is perfect "sprinkled on roasted vegetables."
