A healthy lifestyle which includes exercise and a nutrient-dense diet may help reduce the risk of cancer.

Rohit Shelatkar, VP at Vitabiotics, Fitness & Nutrition Expert lists down some superfoods to add to one’s diet to reduce the risk of breast cancer.

Walnuts

Walnuts are packed with Omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and phytosterols which help regulate estrogen levels and slow the growth of breast cancer cells.
