A review published in the Journal of the American Medical Association has shown that one of the most important vitamins a woman’s body needs to prevent breast cancer is folate. The study showed that the more folate a woman consumed, the less chance she had to develop breast cancer. This is especially true for women who drink a moderate amount of alcohol – too much of which seems to block folate’s beneficial effects.
As always, before beginning any treatment talk to your doctor. He or she can tell you how much folate you should take per day.
