Some women may need to eat nuts rich in the mineral selenium to protect themselves from breast cancer, according to new findings.
Women who carry breast cancer genes may benefit from consuming selenium, according to the findings reported in the journal Cancer Research.
The findings come from a study of a human gene that generates proteins that contain selenium.
Researchers compared tissue from healthy people with tissue from breast cancer patients - and found different versions of the gene in the two different kinds of tissue.

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Previous studies have shown that people who have difficulty processing blood sugar are at risk of diabetes and heart disease. Now new research suggests they may also be at increased risk of dying from cancer.
The blood-sugar condition, known as impaired glucose tolerance, is closely tied to excess weight and lack of exercise.
26/06/2003 An apple a day keeps cancer away. An eight-year study in France has produced the clearest evidence yet that regular consumption of fruit and vegetables cuts the risk of cancer.
Although the beneficial effects of fruit and greens have been asserted by scientists before, the study is believed to be the first to test the theory on controlled groups of volunteers.
Many studies have reported the presence of simian virus 40 (SV40) or protein inhuman brain tumors and bone cancers, malignant mesothelioma, and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, however many of the studies were small or lacking control groups, which made it difficult to determine whether they were reliable.
Further, the history of some SV40 infections in humans is linked to the use of polio vaccines.

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) June 17 - Japanese women who are frequent eaters of miso soup, a soy-filled staple of Japanese cuisine, and soy ingredients called isoflavones appear to be less likely to develop breast cancer, researchers reported Tuesday.
Women in Asian countries have only a fraction of the risk of breast cancer seen in Western countries, and the current findings add to a growing body of evidence that suggests isoflavone intake might help explain why.
