Healthy Legume, Navy Bean Reduces Risk of Breast Cancer

By Kyle J. Norton

The breast is the tissue overlying the chest muscles. in women, breasts are made of specialized tissue that produces milk (glandular tissue) and fatty tissue. The size of the women breast is totally determined by the amount of fat.

Breast cancer is a medical condition associated with alternation of cell DNA located either in the inner lining of milk ducts (Ductal carcinoma) or the lobules (Lobular carcinoma) that supply the ducts with milk.

Most cases of breast cancer start in the cells on the surface of the inner lining tissues of the breast before penetrating into deeper layers to form a tumor through cell cycle division.

According to the statistics provided by the American Cancer Society, in the U.S. approximately, 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.

In 2019, approximately 268,600 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 62,930 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer.

Most common symptoms of the early stage of breast cancer are lump (mass) in the breast, a lump in the armpit (lymph nodes), nipple discharge (clear or bloody), inverted or retracted nipple, scaly or pitted skin on nipple persistent tenderness of the breast and unusual breast pain or discomfort.

If you experience some of the aforementioned symptoms, please check with your doctor to rule out the possibility.

The 5 years survival rate of breast cancer diagnosed at the early stage is closed to 100%.

At the advanced stage, patients may also experience additional symptoms of bone pain (Secondary tumors in the bone), shortness of breath (Secondary tumors in the lung), unintentional weight loss and drop in appetite (Secondary tumors in the liver) and headaches, neurological pain or weakness (Secondary tumors in the nervous system).

The small, white navy bean, also called pea bean or haricot, popular in both dry and green forms, is very popular in Britain and the US, native to Peru. It is now grown and consumed across the world, due to their numerous health benefits.

On finding a potential compound for the treatment of breast cancer, researchers evaluated the high dietary fiber intake and breast cancer risk, particularly in hormone receptor‐negative breast cancer.

According to the returned food frequency data of a population‐based case–control study, including 2135 breast cancer cases (1070 Hispanics, 493 African Americans, and 572 non‐Hispanic Whites (NHWs)) and 2571 controls (1391 Hispanics, 557 African Americans, and 623 NHWs), high intake of bean fiber and total bean, including the navy bean  reduced risk of breast cancer by 20% compared to those in the  low quartile.

Furthermore, high intake of bean fiber and total bean have a strong inverse association with ERPR‐ breast cancer. More precisely, the reduced risk of ER-PR breast cancer associated with high intake were ranging from 28 to 36%.

Believe it or not,  fiber intake from vegetables and fruits or total intake of vegetables and fruits showed no effects on the reduced risk of the diseases.

In other words, adding a portion  or 2 of the navy bean into your daily diet may have a significant effect in the prevention of breast cancer, particularly in hormone-related breast cancer

Based on the finding, researchers wrote in the final report, "A high dietary intake of bean fiber and fiber‐rich foods such as beans and grains may lower the risk of ERPR‐ breast cancer, an aggressive breast cancer subtype for which few risk factors have been identified".

Taken altogether, navy bean containing a high amount of fibers may be considered a remedy for the prevention and treatment of hormone-related breast cancer pending to the confirmation of the larger sample size and multicenter human study.
