Having the right nutrients and phytochemicals (from vegetables, fruits, seeds, nuts, legumes and grains) in the body can ensure that the body defends against these mutated cells and prevent a cancer from growing and spreading. These same nutrients can prevent cancer recurrence.
This is not a far-fetched claim. There is indisputable proof that in populations with higher intake of certain types of foods and nutrients, there is less cancer (and other diseases too). There is also some pretty strong science showing how actual foods prevent the growth and spread of cancer in general, and more specifically breast cancer.
Here is my top 10 list of foods that fight breast cancer.

2. Broccoli Sprouts
3. Cruciferous Vegetables (bok choy, broccoli, kale, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, etc.)
6. Garlic & the Allium Family
7. Green Tea
Soy is a controversial one...I will talk more about the reason it's controversial, and why I recommend eating it in some forms and not others.
ALSO - did you know that there maybe a virus that causes breast cancer? Bovine Leukemia Virus is found in 100% of farms with over 500 cows. The virus causes cancer in bovines, and there is preliminary evidence connecting it to human breast cancer too. It is most likely transmitted via unpasteurized milk and undercooked beef. Of course, I recommend following a whole foods plant based diet, which eliminates these foods. If you do continue to consume dairy and beef, please take precautions and cook your meat thoroughly!
