Your Girls Love Carrots!

The more carotenoids you have circulating in your bloodstream, the lower your risk of breast cancer, finds a new study from Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School.

You'll find carotenoids -  plant-based antioxidants - in carrots, sweet potatoes, spinach, kale, bell peppers, tomatoes, papaya, and other orange or dark green vegetables and fruit.  Research indicates that these antioxidants stifle tumor growth and reduce the spread of estrogen-positive and estrogen-negative breast cancers.
