Help End Breast Cancer while you eat!

On Sunday October 3rd, 2010 thousands of united hearts will walk side by side, connected by the common goal of ending breast cancer and improving those affected by the disease worldwide.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among Canadian women and although its causes are still unknown
the National Cancer Institute estimates that roughly one-third of all cancer deaths may be diet related.
Emerging new research clearly shows us that food and lifestyle choices can make an incredible difference in lowering a person’s risk of breast cancer. This means that now, perhaps more than ever, we can each choose to proactively fight now against breast cancer.

Here are three must-have anti cancer recipes that just happen to be tasty as well.
