There’s good news for peanut butter fans. Researchers tracked 9000 women from 1996-2010 and found that those who ate peanut butter or nuts twice a week or more when aged 9 to 15 were 39 per cent less likely to have developed benign breast disease – while non-cancerous it increases your risk of developing breast cancer later – than those who skipped the nuts. So thank your mum for dishing up peanut butter toast or slipping a peanut butter sandwich in your school lunchbox.  Cheers Mum.

Results also showed some evidence that noshing on beans, lentils, soybeans and corn may also prevent the growth of the disease.

Sitting at a rating of SF2, Berlei have just launched the Berlei Electrify Crop top in Black or Blue RRP$39.95 with a medium impact rating and is the perfect crop top for low impact activities such as Yoga and Strength training and features a racer back design for a fun and fashionable workout. Then there is the Berlei underwire Electrify Contour bra new colour of Red Flair for RRP$49.95 for those of you who prefer an under wire for added support. A wonderful colour option to brighten a dull outfit.

Berlei Brand Manager Tabatha Brixton said: “Market research has shown us that 51% of women don’t think they have to wear a sports bra during low impact exercise. Adding the Electrify Crop to our Sports Range means that we now have a wide range of support levels from SF2 to SF4 to low to high impact activities. “

So next time you are out searching for the right sports bra, head into Myer, David Jones, Rebel Sport or Berlei online and look for the Berlei SF rating as a guide to what sports bra is the right one for you and save your breasts from any further breast damage.
