MedTalk: Diets high in onions, garlic—that result in foul-smelling breath—lower breast cancer risk
Let’s play a game of “Would You Rather”. Would you rather have foul-smelling, rank, musty, and malodorous breath but have a 67% decrease in risk for cancer OR would you rather have floral, aromatic, heaven-sent, and Christmas-in-May breath but have a higher risk for cancer?
A new study published in the scientific journal Nutrition and Cancer may encourage you to start stockpiling garlic bulbs & onions in your kitchen cupboard. Researchers from the University of Buffalo and the University of Puerto Rico published the first-ever population-based study analyzing the relationships between onion, garlic, and breast cancer in Puerto Rican women. They concluded that garlic & onions may reduce the risk of developing breast cancer in women.
Why did the authors isolate Puerto Rican women as the population target? Why not conduct this study with Mississippi women as participants? Why not include women from the DMV area with the study’s participant population? Surely, women everywhere snack on onions and garlic like chips and apples equally across the globe. What’s so special about Puerto Rican women’s breast cancer rates compared to the female population of the mainland United States? We answered all these questions and more during our MedTalk discussion. Recent news of Beyonce’s father, Matthew Knowles, and his diagnosis with breast cancer highlights that this timely MedTalk is not just limited to the female gender. So, ladies and gentlemen, hear why you should embrace the putrid, breath-inducing allium diet on the newest episode of Hype Radio Show! Hit the episode link below at the 22 minute mark:
