(All proceeds Dr. Greger receives from the sales of his books, DVDs, and speaking engagements go to support the 501c3 nonprofit that runs NutritionFacts.org.) DESCRIPTION: Cholesterol appears to stimulate the growth of human breast cancer cells, which may explain why phytosterol-rich foods such as pumpkin seeds are associated with reduced breast cancer risk. If cholesterol increases breast cancer risk, what about the use of cholesterol-lowering drugs? That’s the subject of my next video, Statin Cholesterol Drugs and Invasive Breast Cancer (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/statin-cholesterol-drugs-and-invasive-breast-cancer/). Other foods I mentioned protective against breast cancer include: • Broccoli (Broccoli vs. Breast Cancer Stem Cells http://nutritionfacts.org/video/broccoli-versus-breast-cancer-stem-cells/ and Breast Cancer Survival Vegetable http://nutritionfacts.org/video/breast-cancer-survival-vegetable/) • Soy (Breast Cancer Survival http://nutritionfacts.org/video/breast-cancer-survival-and-soy/ and Soy and BRCA Breast Cancer Genes and Soy http://nutritionfacts.org/video/brca-breast-cancer-genes-and-soy/) • Flax seeds (Flaxseeds & Breast Cancer Prevention http://nutritionfacts.org/video/flaxseeds-breast-cancer-prevention/) Some I didn’t mention include: • Nuts (Tree Nuts or Peanuts for Breast Cancer Prevention? http://nutritionfacts.org/video/tree-nuts-or-peanuts-for-breast-cancer-prevention/) • Greens (Preventing Breast Cancer by Any Greens Necessary http://nutritionfacts.org/video/preventing-breast-cancer-by-any-greens-necessary/) • Mushrooms (Breast Cancer vs. Mushrooms http://nutritionfacts.org/video/breast-cancer-vs-mushrooms/) • Sea vegetables (Which Seaweed Is Most Protective Against Breast Cancer? http://nutritionfacts.org/video/which-seaweed-is-most-protective-against-breast-cancer/) More on phytosterols and there they’re found in: • How Phytosterols Lower Cholesterol (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-phytosterols-lower-cholesterol/) • Optimal Phytosterol Dose (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/optimal-phytosterol-dose/) • Optimal Phytosterol Source (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/optimal-phytosterol-source/) Have a question for Dr. Greger about this video?
