The Doctors welcome breast specialist Dr. Kristi Funk, who has dedicated her entire career to preventing and treating breast cancer, to share 2 breakfast foods that may help to fight and prevent breast cancer -- plus they're tasty and healthy!
The "Breasts: The Owners Manual" author shares her personal recipe for the "Breasturrito." She explains the ingredients pack a powerful anti-cancer punch, with immunity-boosting antioxidants, cancer-fighting soy in the form of tofu, and the turmeric and black pepper, which contains anti-inflammatory spice curcumin. Dr. Funk's breakfast burrito is also packed with cruciferous vegetables (spinach), which she says can seek out and destroy cancer cells and also help the body excrete excess estrogen in your urine.
Another cancer-fighting food that is great in the morning -- or any time of the day -- is Dr. Funk's smoothie, which contains soy milk (which she says can decrease "bad" estrogen), leafy greens, berries (which she says can fight free radicals in the body), amla - the powdered form of the Indian Gooseberry, curcumin or turmeric, pepper, flaxseeds, dates (which Dr. Funk says contains healthy fiber), bananas, cinnamon, aloe vera gel, and green tea or matcha powder.
Plus in the video below, Dr. Funk shares even more cancer-fighting food knowledge with The Doctors explaining how cooking tomatoes for 15 minutes helps release the cancer-fighter lycopene.
