A study shows that a hormone associated with breast growth is very much present in the gluten we eat in our bread. The hormone prolactin is one of the main components responsible for celiac disease. In a 2014 clinical trial, it was found that people diagnosed with this disease had elevated levels of prolactin with them. After they went gluten-free, the prolactin decreased within six months.
I know from personal experience, that when I stop eating bread, the size of my breasts decreased dramatically. It astonished me how quickly they shifted in size immediately after I stop consuming gluten.
There are other sources of gluten, including yeast, wheat and barley. These all contain high levels of estrogen which may also contribute to this experience some women are experiencing.
While some might consider a sudden jump in bra size a blessing, it is concerning to think that there is an external hormone that is essentially creating an imbalance in our bodies. There is an interesting link in women with celiac disease who have been shown to have a lower incidences of breast cancer. There’s not definitive research to show that cutting out gluten is the sole reason for this but it is very possible.
It is important to stay away from processed foods no matter who you are, it is not designed for our body to break down easily. There are few foods women can specifically take to help regulate breast health.
Produce likes sweet potatoes, squash, carrots, broccoli and different kinds of dark leafy greens have been shown to lower the risk of certain types of breast cancer. This is because the compounds in them help regulate cell growth and have restorative properties.
Omega-3 fatty acid’s are always a good source of nutrition. You can get these from different fish like salmon and mackerel, they’ve been shown to reduce the likelihood of breast cancer by an astounding 14%.
Pomegranates and different berries all have a range of healing properties to them, including a suppression of estrogen production. This can help stop the growth of any breast cancer cells that could be starting.
Also eating fresh mushrooms and walnuts have both been shown to reduce the risk of breast cancer as well.
Many of us need to start looking at the idea of being gluten intolerant as something most people actually are.
We have just build an immunity to these things from eating them over a long period of time. It’s possible we would find that if many people drastically shifted to eating raw vegan, their bodily functions would change and they would not be able to support things like gluten and preservatives in their body anymore.
If you are a woman and you like and you enjoy eating bread, fear not for there are many different options.
You could do an experiment and stop eating gluten for a while to see if it has any effect on the size of your breasts. You might just feel a lot better at the end of it as well!
