Elizabeth Hurley Says Her Organic Food May Reduce Breast Cancer Risk
Elizabeth Hurley is getting real close to launching her new line of organic, low-fat dinners — and the former actress is eager for women to try them; especially when it comes to reducing their risk of breast cancer. “I think we know now that many issues with women’s health can be linked back to their diet,” Hurley told People magazine. “We’ve been saying for a long time that many breast cancer specialists recommend sticking to as low-fat a diet as possible, which all has to do with how oestrogen is stored in the body.”
The actress and her husband reside on a biodynamic farm she bought a couple years ago. “It’s the only place I want to be. When we get our organic status we’re going to farm properly and we’re going to have a herd of cows and proper sheep and proper chickens, and we’re going to have Gloucestershire Old Spot pigs,” she said last year.
Now, with the pigs and chickens all in place, Hurley is moving ahead with her frozen organic dinners “with a view that they’re not only going to be healthy,” she said. “because they’re organic, but I’m obsessed that women find alternatives to eat which are low in fat. For a long time we’ve been telling women to try and follow a low-fat diet and try and switch from a high-fat milk to a zero-fat milk. Now we genuinely believe if any of even the zero fat milk is crammed full of antibiotics and hormones it can be very detrimental to your health,” she added.
No word yet on if we’ll see these frozen organic entrees stateside…
