The best part of Nov. 1 isn’t all the leftover Halloween candy.
It’s that another misguided “Breast Cancer Awareness Month” has mercifully come to an end!
For a solid month now, we’ve had to sit through the Pink Ribbon Mafia pushing the mammograms proven to hurt as many as 10 women for every one they’re supposed to “save” down our throats
For a solid month now, we’ve had to listen to them BEG for money — and if you don’t open your wallet, they’ll treat you like some kind of monster.
And for a solid month now, we’ve had to sit by as those nitwits IGNORE the common-sense solutions truly proven to beat breast cancer — including one simple solution that can make the difference between life and death for women who have this disease.
It’s not another screening… it’s not surgery… it’s not a drug… and it’s not even a supplement.
It’s plain old tuna fish!
One recent study tracked some 1,400 women with breast cancer for nearly 15 years. In that time, nearly a third of them died — some from breast cancer, some from other causes.
Many of those who lived had something very important in common: They ate plenty of tuna!
And if you’ve been diagnosed with breast cancer yourself, eating more tuna could cut your own risk of death by 29 percent, according to the study in the journal Cancer.
The biggest benefit goes to women who eat FRESH tuna, not those cans that have been piling up in the back of your cupboard since the Reagan years — so if you want to arm yourself against cancer, enjoy a tuna steak or maybe even some sushi.
Other fish can also help fight off breast cancer, and while the benefit isn’t quite as big, it’s still pretty darned good. Eating other types of baked fish, for example, can slash your risk of death by 25 percent.
The key, of course, is in the omega-3 fatty acids found in tuna and other fish. In fact, the study finds women with the highest EPA and DHA intakes have between a 25 percent and 29 percent lower risk of death.
So if you’re not a fish fan be sure to take a daily fish oil supplement.
