Breast cancer. It’s a diagnosis that no one wants to hear. You may have been diagnosed with it yourself. And if not you, you may know someone (or many someones) who have been diagnosed with the disease. About 1 in 8 women in the USA will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. So if you are an American woman reading this right now, knowing what precautions you can take to protect yourself against developing breast cancer should be among your highest priorities.

Thankfully, our client, Dr. Steven C. Quay, has this advice for you: eat your garlic and onions. And eat them on the daily.

Dr. Steven C. Quay is the founder of Seattle-based Atossa Genetics, Inc., dedicated to breast cancer prevention. His contributions to medicine, cancer, and biochemistry have been cited more than 9,300 times, putting him in the top 1% of the world’s scientists. His current passion involves the prevention of the two million yearly breast cancer cases worldwide.

Dr. Quay has read and reviewed over 1000 articles on the impact of food on health, and specifically, breast cancer. He prefers to look at studies done on human cells rather than on mice, because let’s face it – mice and humans are different.

He happily came across a study out of Puerto Rico published in July 2019 that determined a group of foods – the Allium Family  – are very effective in the prevention of breast cancer. What is this group of foods? Garlic. Onions. And all their varieties.

Who knew? Garlic is now not just great for warding away vampires (and make out sessions with your date, haha). Turns out, it’s one of your most powerful tools in the prevention of breast cancer.
