Anti-Ovarian Cancer Diet

branzino/sea bass
Another post on Dr. Mehmet Oz's website, reported through an article written by Dr. William W. Li, MD, outlining an anti-ovarian cancer diet.  Li purports that onion (especially red onion, uncooked), endive (uncooked, 1/2 cup 2x a week), fish (6 oz, 3x week), especially branzino type sea bass, but primarily keeping an eye on Omega-3's (salmon is an excellent choice too) as well as fresh tomatoes, are deterrents to ovarian cancer.  Here is a simple guide from an online article written by Joanne Eglash, Diets Examiner, of The, if you are interested, for further information.  

While this might seem a bit extreme, if we at least begin to smatter our diets with these healthy foods may be helpful.  

Keep in mind, however, especially regarding fish, to keep an eye on sustainability and health.  Monterey Bay Aquarium regularly updates regional seafood guides.  Follow the guide and click on your local region for more information on safety and sustainability.

Lastly, consult your medical professional before starting any new diet.
