Mrs. Yuki Masuda should learn about right nutrition and medical knowledge. She should find that Asian peoples congenitally have a low risk of cancer since Asian peoples' life style reduces cancer risks.
At first, she should change her diet. She should have fewer Western - style fatty foods and sweets, and eat more traditional Japanese-style vegetables, fruits, fish and so on. Also, there is so much beef and pork, sweet coconut oil and margarine in Western-style diets. They have rich calories and fat, and they produce high levels of LDL cholesterol in the body. So she should have more vegetables and fruits, because they have rich dietary fiber and vitamins. They reduce cholesterol and raise the function of inner organs.
If she cooks Western-style dishes, she should use olive oil, tomato and chicken. Olive oil raises HDL levels -- HDL is the "good" form of cholesterol that helps the body fight certain disease -- and she should reduce the danger of LDL by taking in healthier vegetables, such as tomatoes and broccoli, etc. Research shows that vegetables like tomatoes and broccoli can positively affect women's health and help reduce risks for cancer.
She has too many sweet foods, so she should limit her intake to just one dessert a day. Sweet foods are rich sugar. Sugar has high calories and leads to high levels of fat. She often does not have breakfast. This is a mistake. No breakfast can lead to being overweight and reduce the function of the brain.
Secondly, she should reduce weight and have more exercise. For example, she should go for frequent walks that are 20 minutes or longer every day, and she should consider taking up swimming. These exercises efficiently burn fat and healthily reduce the state of being overweight, and raise the function of the inner organs, as well as reduce the risk of the variable middle-aged diseases, for example, cancer.
Finally, my overall advice to Mrs.
Masuda is that she should be aware of the danger of developing cancer
and other middle-aged diseases. She should change her life style.
