There is cancer in my family and I believe it may be in yours too as cancer is the second leading cause of death in Europe. The investment in research and treatment have never been as high as today but still we are getting sicker and sicker. The reason is simple: there is no focus on prevention. I guess there is NO money being made in health – only in sickness!
If there are many risk factors for cancer, diet is the one that can be controlled very closely on a day to day basis. Food is medicine and every plant food has got amazing healing power.
When dealing with cancer healing and cancer prevention, research has shown that some foods are more powerful than others.
Here is my top 10 preventive cancer food:
1- Garlic: is antibacterial, antifungal, and contains chemicals that help to prevent cancer.
2- Curcuma: the latest researches have shown turmeric to be a very powerful anti-cancer agent by increasing the degeneration of blood vessels that supply cancerous growths. By doing so, the tumors lose their ability to grow and spread.
3- Green leafy vegetables: are loaded with folate and chlorophyll. They are also great blood purifiers.
4- Apple Cider Vinegar: is a wonderful natural product that has many different health benefits.
5- Flaxseed oil: is very rich in omega 3 essential in order to keep inflammation in check.. Make sure to buy organic flax seed and to keep it in the fridge.
6- Cruciferous veggies: broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, bok choy and kale. They contain isothiocyanates which kill cancer cells, and prevent tumours from growing.
7- Berries: are loaded with antioxydants which neutralize free radicals. Read about the power of berries here.
8- Papaya: University of Florida researcher Dr. Nam Dang, and colleagues in Japan have documented papaya’s dramatic anticancer effect against a broad range of lab-grown tumors, including cancers of the cervix, breast, liver, lung and pancreas.
9- Green tea: chemicals in green tea called polyphenols appear to inhibit two proteins that promote tumor cell growth and migration.
10- Asparagus: is a potent antioxidant, anti-fungal and antiviral.
Try to incorporate all these foods into your daily menu plan (or at least 5 of them daily). More than offering you anticancer properties, these foods will all really improve your health overall.
Take care of yourself! Your health is a gift.
