Avoid using copper heating milk

Currently, a number of high-grade copper utensils in there are applications, such as copper pot, copper heating cup.
Copper can accelerate the destruction of the vitamin, especially in the heating process, the copper on the milk has a catalytic chemical reaction occurs, will accelerate the loss of nutrients.

Drink a glass of milk a day more appropriate

Easy to forget the details of the mouth to drink milk stink

The vitamins and calcium supplements may reduce breast cancer risk

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

The risk of breast cancer would decrease with vitamins and calcium supplements. This is the main conclusion of a study at the School of Medicine Ponce de Puerto Rico, announced during the annual meeting of the American Cancer Society. “It’s not an immediate effect,” said Jaime Matta, head of the study, “however, we observed a long-term effect.”

The researcher said the findings suggest that calcium supplements act to increase DNA repair capacity, a complex biological process involving more than 200 proteins that, if altered, may lead to cancer development. “This process involves at least five separate mechanisms and is critical for maintaining genomic stability. When the DNA is not repaired, leads to the mutation that leads to cancer,” said Matta.

The study involved 268 women with breast cancer and 457 healthy controls. The older women were more likely to develop breast cancer, family history, were not breastfeed their children and had lower DNA repair capacity.

Vitamin supplements appear to reduce breast cancer risk by about 30% and calcium, 40%. After taking into account the level of DNA repair capacity, calcium supplements failed to protect. However, it maintained the link between vitamin supplements and reduced risk of breast cancer. “We’re not talking about megadoses of these vitamins and calcium supplements, so this is a way to reduce the risk,” he said Matta.
