healthy body, mind, and spirit. New research suggests
women looking to prevent breast cancer after meno- pause may want to consider dietary changes, including adopting Mediterranean eating habits, to reduce their risk.
healthy body, mind, and spirit. Mediterranean Diet May Help Fight
According to information published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutri- tion, Greek post-menopausal women who rated highly in terms of researching scores in their consumption of foods that fit with a Mediterranean diet were 22 percent less likely to develop breast can- cer during the study than oth- ers. Although the diet is not a cure-all for breast cancer, researchers estimate that if all women in their study population had closely adhered to a traditional Mediterranean diet, about 10 percent of the 127 postmenopausal breast cancers in the group would have been avoided. It has long been believed that a Mediterranean diet has
many positive effects on personal health. Although stud- ies have only been conducted on breast cancer thus far, there is also hopeful evidence that the diet may reduce the risk for other cancers, including colon and stomach cancer, as well as reduce the chances for heart disease.
What Is a Mediterranean Diet? Nations in the Mediterranean region, including Italy, Greece, Turkey, and Spain, have historically had lower rates of heart disease and some cancers, including breast cancer, compared with other European countries and the United States. Researchers believe there is a correlation between the foods Mediterranean people eat and the rates of cancer and other illnesses. A traditional Mediterranean diet is rich in seafood, heart-healthy fish, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, and olive oil. It is relatively low in dairy and red meat products. According to the Mayo Clinic, most if not all major scientific organizations encourage healthy adults to adopt a diet similar to the Mediterranean diet to prevent major chronic diseases. Those who want to follow a Mediterranean diet can consider the following guidelines. * Base every meal on the consumption of fruits, veg- etables, grains, olive oil, beans, nuts, legumes, seeds, herbs, and spices.
* Consume fish and seafood often, at least two times per week. * Enjoy moderate portions of poultry, eggs, cheese, and yogurt daily to weekly.
* Reduce and limit consumption of meats and sweets. Experts say that if the Mediterranean diet does have
a preventative nature toward breast cancer and other illnesses, it is likely due to the antioxidant components of the diet. The Mediterranean diet is rich in antioxi- dants, which protect cells from damage that may lead to diseases. The diet also helps to promote a health body
weight, which is instrumental in keeping the body in top form and helping with immune system function. To get started on the path of healthy Mediterranean eating, enjoy this recipe for Eggplant Dip.
Eggplant Dip 1
medium eggplant tablespoons lemon juice
cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
cup plain Greek yogurt
small red bell pepper, finely chopped
small chile pepper, such as jalapeno, seeded and minced (optional) tablespoons chopped fresh basil
tablespoon finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste teaspoon salt
Position oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source; preheat broiler.
Line a baking pan with foil. Place eggplant in the pan and poke a few holes all over it to vent steam. Broil the eggplant, turning with tongs every 5 minutes, until the skin is charred and a knife inserted into the dense flesh near the stem goes in easily, 14 to 18 minutes. Cool on a cutting board until ready to handle. Put lemon juice in a medium bowl. Cut the eggplant in half lengthwise and scrape the flesh into the bowl, toss- ing with the lemon juice to help prevent discoloring. Add oil and stir with a fork until the oil is absorbed. (It should be a little chunky.) Stir in yogurt, onion, bell pepper, chile pepper (if using), basil, parsley, cayenne and salt. If the eggplant has a lot of seeds it may be bitter. Add a dash of salt to sweeten the dip. Serve with whole-wheat crackers, wedges of toasted pita, or fresh vegetable slices.

countries, including Canada and European nations. Some say the American system is better, while others think better care is received through a universal or government-sponsored system. In terms of cancer diagnosis and survival, the U.S. may have the advantage. According to data published by the National Center for Policy Analysis, Americans have better survival rates for common cancers. Breast cancer mortality is 52 percent higher in Germany and 88 percent higher in the U.K. than in the U.S. Breast cancer mortality is also 9 per- cent higher in Canada than in the U.S. This could be because American women have better access to preventive screening methods than Canadians and others. Eighty-nine percent of middle-aged American women have had a mammogram, compared to 72 percent of Canadians.
