There are loads of things you don't want your growing child to eat too much of. You know, like junk food, chocolate, that sorta stuff. However, what if I were to tell you that there's one food you should be encouraging your daughter to indulge in at least twice a week? One that could actually stave off breast disease? Ready for the magical food: peanut butter.
A recent study published in the Breast Cancer Research and Treatment journal found that girls between the ages of 9 and 15 who ate peanut butter twice a week had a 39 percent lower risk of developing breast disease, or benign breast disease. And get this: the effect seemed especially strong among girls who had some history of breast cancer in their family.
Time to grab some jelly, two pieces of whole wheat bread, and make her a sandwich.
