Are there foods which help to reduce your risk for
endometriosis? Is there an ideal diet to prevent this disease
or which can reduce the painful mentrual cycles which often
acompany endometriosis?

According to little known research, the answer is "yes".

A 2005 study from researchers at the University of Milano in
Italy found that some foods are clearly superior to others if
you want to prevent endometriosis. And, there are foods
which can increase your risk for developing the disease.

What Is Endometriosis?

But first, what is endometriosis? Endometrial cells normally
line the uterus in healthy women. Endometriosis occurs
when these cells escape the uterus and begin to grow
outside. In an estrogen-rich environment, endometrial cells
flourish. If they become large enough, they can irritate
surrounding organs and tissues, and cause painful menstrual
periods, cramping and infertility. In fact, endometriosis is the
leading cause of infertility in women.

Update:

Endometriosis affects between 5% and 15% of women of
child-bearing age, according to a 2010 study led by Dr. Halis
Gulden of the Deutsches Endometriosezentrum Berlin , Klinik
für Gynäkologie und Geburtsmedizin in Germany. About 176
million American women have endometriosis, including
actress Susan Sarandon of "Thelma and Louise" fame.


Foods That Reduce Endometriosis Risk

These are the foods which lower your risk for developing
endometriosis:





























1.
Green Vegetables Lower Endometriosis Risk.  Eating
green vegetables reduces your risk of endometriosis by
30%.  Eating a diet rich in green vegetables can
lower the
amount of internal inflammation in your body and can help
to modulate estrogen levels. (Read more about the
health
benefits of dark green, leafy vegetables.)

2.
Fresh Fruit. Participants who ate the most fresh fruit
experienced only 1/6 the incidence of endometriosis as
those who ate the least amount of fruits.

3.
Red Meat Increases Endometriosis Risk. One of the worst
foods you can eat if you suffer from endometriosis or if you
are at higher risk for endometriosis is red meat. Red meat is
highly inflammatory, and encourages the production of
estrogen, which ofcourse can increase cramping and
bleeding. Endometrial cells feed on high estrogen levels.

4.
Certain Foods Have No Effect on Endometriosis. Contrary
to some reports, drinking milk and eating dairy had no
apparent effect on endometriosis risk.  Other foods with no
effect include milk, liver, carrots, cheese, fish and
whole-grain foods, as well as coffee and alcohol consumption
