Let’s talk about the top things that decrease the risk of breast cancer.

There are many different genetic issues that can cause someone to be at risk for breast cancer. Mutations to the genes: BRCA1 and BRCA2 create the most significant risk of breast cancer.

One thing you need to know is that your genes don’t cause cancer. What can lead to cancer are epigenetic factors. These are lifestyle choices that control whether certain genes are turned on or off.

Things that can potentially increase your risk of breast cancer:
• Smoking
• Alcohol
• Pollution
• Toxins in the environment
• Heavy metals
• Nitrates in processed foods
• Birth control pills
• Hormone therapy
• Refined carbohydrates
• Stress

Ways to potentially decrease the risk of breast cancer:
1. Consume cruciferous vegetables
2. Consume sprouts and microgreens
3. Take DIM
4. Have a positive mindset
5. Exercise regularly
6. Do intermittent and prolonged fasting
7. Get on a low-carb diet
8. Consume organic foods
9. Reduce your stress

    • Kathy on April 8, 2023 at 10:41 am

      Most important thing is knowing where you are going when this life is over. Heaven or hell? God loves you! Repent for sin in your life…and ask Jesus to be your Lord! Today…Read the Bible

    • Vera Jones on April 8, 2023 at 2:03 pm

    I don’t have it, but I’ve seen my uncle’s wife dying with it, and now her daughters at risk. Thanks for the info Dr Berg 🌸

    Unfortunately this hits too close to home. Genetic testing shows I don’t have the gene even though a sibling has the BRCII. Yeah men can have it too. She had a double mastectomy at 44 and is in her mid 50’s now. Another sister(don’t know if she had the gene) passed at 51 from a different cancer that due to her poverty level wasn’t treated very well. Her lifestyle and attitude didn’t help matters much. An older brother passed of lung cancer this past year and two other older brothers died from alcohol/ drug related tolls on the body. Both of them in their 40’s. Father was 54 with his throat cancer death. My maternal grandmother and her sister both passed from breast cancer. They never smoked or drank except maybe a beer during lunch when baling hay in the summers.
    I’ll pass this link and info along to the 5 sisters and brother I have left and my nieces that are nearing the ages that started affecting us but most of them might be set in their ways.

    My mom and 2 aunts had breast cancer twice. My mom died from vaginal cancer last year. So definitely runs in my family on both sides. And I was on birth control and many different hormone therapies for years unfortunately.

    • Sarah Perine on April 8, 2023 at 1:57 pm

      Sending you health💚

    • Mel Breazeale on April 8, 2023 at 4:57 pm

      Have you been tested? Breast and ovarian ran on our paternal side. I never met my grandmother due to ovarian cancer.
      I tested positive for BRCA at 38 and went ahead and got a double mastectomy and full hysterectomy. I was thankful that I had the opportunity to be preventive where the other women in our family didn’t. 🤍

    My dad is almost 80 and a smoker since 19, he has always smoked outside and each night does a phlegm and sinus cleanse in the shower 😊must have helped him… also eats onions and garlic liberally 😂

    • Maksim B on April 8, 2023 at 1:17 pm

      That onion and garlic really helps when eaten raw.. same with my grandma she survived a stroke and they said she wouldn’t make it she got out of the paralysis and now she’s walking around still eating raw onion and garlic

    • fidel catsro on April 8, 2023 at 1:24 pm

      how many sticks per day? 🐱🚬

  7. Hala Havez on April 8, 2023 at 11:23 am

    Well done Dr Berg for talking to the plants👍😊 As a true empath, you realise that everything around you has a soul, same thing I do with an injured dove nearby my window, which was constantly being attacked and pecked by other birds. When I started to talk to it on daily bases the dove started to heal and eventually learned how to defend itself against attackers. Same with narcs who attack or bully us on daily bases. That’s why people in stressful environments are more likely to develop cancer and other serious diseases, and we should keep a positive mindset no matter how negative our environments are.

  8. Mrs. Damon James Hendley on April 8, 2023 at 11:33 am

    My mom died from cancer that started in her breastplate. The lil pill they gave her to stop it; excellerated it. Once it was all over her body, she was given months. With morphine to mask the pain, she only had 6 weeks. She thought she had to smash her breasts to stay on top of cancer, but she actually set it into motion. She could have changed her diet and stopped smoking to help but she was addicted to caffeine free diet Pepsi which has aspartame. She drank it daily. What we put in our bodies definitely impacts our lives. I love Dr. Berg and all of his videos. I wish he would make one on extra fat on one thigh versus the other.

    • Tanya Sharadamba on April 8, 2023 at 1:35 pm

      Deepest peace to your mother 🙏🏼.
      Powerful comment, I hope he reads it & makes an uneven thigh fat video too.

    • NC Bluegrass Events on April 8, 2023 at 2:51 pm

      One leg being bigger than the other could be ovarian cancer… i think it is upper leg in the front view though.

    • Mrs. Damon James Hendley on April 8, 2023 at 3:10 pm

      @Tanya Sharadamba thx

  9. Jay Aye on April 8, 2023 at 12:00 pm

    I saw that plant experiment in a school to teach the students about bullying. It was a powerful lesson for all of us.

  10. Joie DeVivre on April 8, 2023 at 12:44 pm

    I have BRCA & had a terrible mindset despite healthy eating & exercise. Dx aggressive breast cancer at age 41 w 4 young kids ages 3 thru 11. Now a new lease on life…changed attitude, trying to find joy, keto, fasting. I’m almost 10 years out! Hoping for a long, fulfilling life! Trying to work on the alcohol that got away from me during COVID.

    • Sarah Perine on April 8, 2023 at 2:01 pm

      It’s really hard. Just starting my journey. I’m so glad you’re out of it and sending positive thoughts as I work on mine💚

  11. flamingpie herman on April 8, 2023 at 12:47 pm

    My mom always said that breast cancer reduces when you breastfeed a baby…of course that was in the 70’s. Now we have processed foods, etc that hurt our DNA as well as toxins.

  12. Anonymous Source on April 8, 2023 at 1:13 pm

    Great informative episode. Can you also do an episode on ‘dense breast tissue’ and whether that increases the chance of breast cancer?

    • JillyBean860 on April 8, 2023 at 2:12 pm

      After my first ever mammogram this year, I was told that I have dense breast tissue, so I’d like to know this as well.

      @JillyBean860 I’m also curious to find out if diet/nutrition plays a role in dense breast tissue. I have not found any studies or info on it yet.

  13. Klg2knwme Klg2knwme on April 8, 2023 at 1:25 pm

    Thank you for the life-changing information, Dr. Breg.

    • Dr. Eric Berg DC on April 8, 2023 at 1:58 pm

      That’s nothing. Glad to share information that can help you

  14. Esther's Daughter! Long on April 8, 2023 at 1:42 pm

    Thank you Dr Berg.
    My sister had two different breast cancers. She went through chemo and radiation and it’s gone.
    I don’t think I would choose chemo though.

  15. Sarah Perine on April 8, 2023 at 1:54 pm

    Dr. Berg, I’m waiting on my BRCA results. My sister tested negative 4.5 years ago when she got breast cancer. Now I have a slightly different breast cancer (triple positive breast cancer). I’m the same age my sister was when she got it. Our mom got a slightly different breast cancer at age 70. I’ve followed you, Guy and Fred, Dr. Seyfried, and have the books Keto for Cancer and Busting Breast Cancer. I’ve done all the things you recommend. I eat so much cruciferous and my vitamin D is way too high😹 I take your DIM, iodine and many of your supplements that have improved my health greatly (the breast cancer diagnosis is a shock). I do your healthy keto, intermittent fasting and prolonged fasting. I’m starting another prolonged fast in a couple days. It seems my diet and fasting have slowed growth of my tumor but it isn’t shrinking. I do not want to do standard of care. I am very attached to my health and so upset at the hit I’m going to take after 1.5 years of chemo, surgery and radiation, and 5-10 years of hormone blocking drugs. Please can you recommend anything? Can you please do a video on the hormone blocking drugs? I saw one you did on tamoxifen. Can you please do more? I only just turned 45 a few days ago. I’m very physically active and have my own small farm. I want to stay strong for many years to come 🙏🏽

    • Rhonda K on April 8, 2023 at 5:06 pm

      How frustrating…I pray 🙏 that u find ur answers in natural health.

    • gewloom sre on April 8, 2023 at 5:09 pm

      Meditation and cannabis oil full spectrum (watch out for fake cannabis oil) low your stress by not worrying too much that causes bad hormones, have faith and keep cleansing with green bitter leafy greens juices.

    • WH2012 on April 8, 2023 at 5:59 pm

      Look into Apricot seeds (Vitamin B-17).

    • WH2012 on April 8, 2023 at 5:59 pm

      @you heard that Look into Apricot seeds (Vitamin B-17).

  16. Priyanka on April 8, 2023 at 2:19 pm

    Thank you Doctor.Such videos are a great help and nothing better than getting valuable info before time.

    • Dr. Eric Berg DC on April 8, 2023 at 3:40 pm

      Most welcome! Glad you found it informative.

  17. Lola ღ Ford on April 8, 2023 at 3:04 pm

    I talk to my plant every morning and tell it that I love it and it grew so fast. I brought it to my plant l lady and she was shocked. She said this plant takes at least 2 years to grow a single leaf and others come to complain to her about how their plants arent growing. Mine has 3 giant ones in less than a year

  18. Caroline (Inryuka) on April 8, 2023 at 3:50 pm

    I was worrying about breast cancer a week ago and now Dr. Eric Berg uploaded about the topic as if he knew about my anxious thoughts. Great video Dr. Eric Berg!

  19. Christine Kay on April 8, 2023 at 4:06 pm

    This was very interesting! BRCA1 is everywhere on my maternal side, and I have always been curiously fascinated by why some have gotten sick and others haven’t. This makes a lot of sense to me. Thank you!!

  20. Esoteric Solitaire on April 8, 2023 at 4:57 pm

    Yep. The doctor told my friend with breast cancer that she would never get well unless she changed her outlook. She was very depressed upon diagnosis.
    To make a long story short, she moved away from her stressful environment and surrounded herself with happy people and animals. She began taking walks, on the farm, and getting more sunshine. Her chemo went well and she is now completely cancer free.

    • Tangie Shogelola on April 8, 2023 at 5:48 pm

      Amen! I’m so happy for her!
