We have been asked many times this question: Are there cancer-fighting foods? Can healthy food protect you from breast cancer?

Well, no, not directly anyway. You cannot prevent yourself from having breast cancer directly with eating healthy food. Unfortunately, there is no such thing as anti cancer food or a magical formula that prevents us from having any type of cancer. That would have been a medical revolution.

However, with a healthy lifestyle and a strong immune system, you can definitely lower your chances of developing breast cancer or any type of cancer.  There are few common and easy ways by which you can directly influence the strength of your immune system.

We all know that eating healthier food is something we should all be doing. 

if you can't read it, don't eat it!

The first step is knowing what you’re consuming. But what about the nutritional information- the long list of ingredients on the packages which are written in tiny letters? You need to have a degree in chemistry to understand the substances!  Also, many products that declare themselves as “healthy” include artificial preservatives or the food is processed in such a way that there are no essential vitamins left. A basic rule of thumb- simpler is better.

Pay attention to what you give to your body. Eating healthy food, exercise and routine checks are essential for a woman’s health.

Our aim is to introduce the residents of the UAE to a healthy breakfast and give them the opportunity to make their own decisions about what they have in their muesli.

In observance of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we are supporting medical research by donating 5% to the Al Jalila Foundation for every pack of muesli bought until the end of October 2016. Al Jalila Foundation is a not-for-profit organization established by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, in November 2012 to support medical education and research.

Go pink, support science and eat healthy.
