Milk Away Fibroids
Uterine fibroids are solid muscle tissue growths that are in the uterus. The cause of them are unknown but estrogen promotes their growth. They are not cancerous and are malignant, so they do not spread to other parts of the body. A recent study has shown that women who have four or more daily servings of dairy are 30 percent less likely to develop fibroids than women who have less than one per day. Nutrients, such as calcium, vitamin D, and phosphorus help to maintain normal cell division, which might protect the body against fibroids.
